We are seeking to appoint a Planning Officer for an interesting, varied and responsible role in the Research Intelligence Unit within the Planning & Strategy Office. Working alongside another Planning Officer and reporting to the Head of Planning & Reporting, you will produce high quality research intelligence and management information across a range of research data to monitor and evaluate the University’s research performance, making use of data visualisation and analytical tools as appropriate. You will also play a key part in the preparation of the University’s next REF submission. This is a great opportunity to inform decision making in the research remit, and contribute to the successful delivery of the University’s Research plan.
To undertake research for an ERC funded research project entitled “Cracking the pitch code in music and language: Insights from congenital amusia (CA) and autism spectrum disorders (ASD).” Specifically, the post holder will conduct a series of behavioural and EEG studies to test cognitive and pitch processing skills and speech, music, and emotion production and perception abilities in Mandarin/English speakers with or without CA or ASD, in order to understand the underlying mechanisms of pitch processing in music and language.
The post will be part of a team of 7 scientists working on the European Research Council Advanced Investigator Grant CUNDA, that will develop and combine causality and nonlinear data assimilation to infer cause and effect relation in the highly turbulent ocean area around South Africa. Specifically, the post will be responsible for developing causality into a quantitative analysis tool by putting it into a Bayesian framework.
Applications are invited for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to manage and develop projects investigating the roles of circulating extracellular vesicles in cardiovascular biology and the impact of diet on the generation and function of extracellular vesicles.
We are looking for a researcher with expertise in distributed hydrological modelling to join the LANDWISE project team, funded through NERC’s Evaluating the Effectiveness of Natural Flood Management programme.
An exciting opportunity for a full-time up to 23-month postdoctoral research post to work on a multi-centred BBSRC funded dietary intervention study in collaboration with colleagues in Italy, Ireland and Israel.
We seek a talented and imaginative scientist to carry out research on applying observational constraints to ocean heat uptake and sea level change as projected by global atmosphere-ocean climate models (the latest generation of AOGCMs), using novel analytical techniques and model experiments.
An exciting chance to develop the next generation of rapid clinical antibiotic resistance test. Simple, low-cost microfluidic microbiology combined with state-of-the art surface chemistry. 3 year EPSRC funded programme uses bioengineering and chemistry to solve global healthcare challenges.
