2020 Science Research Positions

The 2020 Science programme is now hiring. We have four research positions available, two based at CoMPLEX at the University College London and two based at the University of Oxford. Details of the positions are listed below. Appointments will be for up to two years. Candidates are asked to carefully consider their application and encouraged to only apply to one institution.

Research Fellows (Two posts)<http://www.us2.list-manage2.com/track/click?u=2ac2a7681687807e77df54c6c&id=8420cb47fe&e=a95458c3da>

Department of Computer Science, Wolfson Building, Parks Road, Oxford
Grade 7: £29,249 - £35,938 p.a.

The University of Oxford, University College London and Microsoft Research Laboratory, Cambridge have received funding from the EPSRC Cross-Disciplinary Interfaces Programme (C-DIP) for a programme of research that will involve up to 17 postdoctoral fellowships over 5 years. At the heart of the programme is the development and application of novel computational approaches, methods and tools to address fundamental problems in natural science, and the scientific computing, scientific software development and software engineering that underpin the development of predictive models of complex, multi-scale biological systems.

We are looking for exceptional candidates. You will be a highly motivated early-career researcher with a documented track record of successful research projects, strong quantitative modelling skills, computational proficiency, and an understanding of and desire to do interdisciplinary research. You will be expected to produce leading scientific research in the chosen area of work, publish results in top scientific journals, and interact closely with other members of the group and group collaborators. An interest in statistics and model selection/validation or the principles of biological computation is desirable, though applications conforming to the scientific remit outlined in the further particulars will be considered. Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant area of science by 1 October 2012.

The post is available for up to 2 years. Full details of the positions are available here<http://www.us2.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=2ac2a7681687807e77df54c6c&id=86b4cdad12&e=a95458c3da> (Job vacancy ID:102140).

The closing date for applications is noon on 19 March 2012. Interviews are expected to be held on 24 April 2012.

Grade: 7
Hours: Full Time
Salary (inclusive of London allowance): £32,055 to £38,744 per annum

Duties and Responsibilities:

CoMPLEX is UCL’s centre for interdisciplinary research in the life sciences. It brings together life and medical scientists with mathematicians, physical scientists, computer scientists and engineers to tackle the challenges arising from complexity in biology and medicine.

The University College London, University of Oxford and Microsoft Research Laboratory, Cambridge have recently received funding from the EPSRC Cross-Disciplinary Interfaces Programme (2020 Science: Mathematical and Computational Modelling of Complex Natural Systems) for a programme of research that will involve up to 17 post-doctoral Research Associates over 5 years. The programme is focused on fostering the creation of a new generation of interdisciplinary research leaders; scientists who are able to apply and develop computational and mathematical modelling approaches to advance our understanding of complex natural systems.

Two new posts at CoMPLEX, funded for 24 months in the first instance, will join three existing Research Associates appointed in 2011. It is expected that the Research Associates will work with colleagues across the programme, including those based at Oxford University and Microsoft Research in Cambridge.

Key Requirements:

The suitable candidates will be a highly motivated researchers with a PhD in a relevant area of science, such as: mathematical or computational biology, computer science or biology. Research experience of mathematical or computational modelling of complex natural systems is essential, as well as the ability to conduct and complete research projects, as witnessed by published peer-reviewed work.
