The post

The College wishes to recruit a Research Fellow with experience in computational modelling for decision making. Suitable disciplinary backgrounds include computer sciences, mathematics, quantitative economics or natural sciences. This is a 17 month post starting on 1at October 2019.

The successful candidate will be co-supervised by Professor Brett Day from the LEEP Institute in the Department of Economics and Professor Richard Everson from the Department of Computer Sciences and will join a vibrant interdisciplinary team of researchers working on the boundary between computer sciences, economics, natural sciences and policy.

This research position will examine decision-making problems relating to uses of land across the UK; in particular, how to decide which areas should be used for agriculture, which for forestry which for nature etc. when we are uncertain over the costs and benefits of each land use in each location. Working with an existing suite of computer models, the successful candidate will be involved in the quantification of uncertainty in those models and in developing solution methods that use those models to identify potentially optimal patterns of land use. Accordingly, experience in uncertainty quantification, model emulation and optimisation under uncertainty will be especially relevant.

The post is associated with two research programmes. The first is the ADVANCES project funded under NERC’s Landscapes Decision Programme. The second is a DEFRA project examining the environmental and economic consequences of different agri-environment policy designs. Accordingly, the post will sit on the boundary between cutting-edge research and real-world policy application.

About you

The successful applicant will be able to present information on research progress and outcomes, communicate complex information, orally, in writing and electronically and prepare academic papers, funding proposals and applications to external bodies.
Applicants will possess a relevant PhD (or be nearing completion) or possess an equivalent qualification/experience in a related field of study and be able to demonstrate sufficient knowledge in the discipline and of research methods and techniques to work within established research programmes.

Postdoctoral Research Associate/Fellow

College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences

 

Living Systems Institute

 

This full-time post is available immediately on a fixed term basis for up to 24 months to support the work of Professor Frank Vollmer.

 

You will apply a novel optical single-molecule technique that has been developed in Prof Vollmer’s Laboratory to study molecular biophysics. The label-free single molecule technique will allow you to visualise the dynamics of enzymes, measure their energy landscapes, and apply pico to femto-Newton forces to control chemical reactions. These fundamental single-molecule studies will lead into the development of various applications for ultra-sensitive biomedical diagnostics.

 

This work is part of the UKRI Molecular Mechanics Initiative at the University of Exeter.  The UKRI funded Molecular Mechanics Initiative is a cutting-edge research programme that aims to achieve breakthroughs in how we detect, analyse, and manipulate molecules at the ultimate single-molecule level. The programme will develop a novel laser sensing and molecular mechanics analysis and manipulation capabilities. These capabilities will be at the forefront of developments showing that the technique holds the key to the next generation of enabling analytical and healthcare technologies on sensor chips. Our approach will unravel nature’s design principles for nanomachines, and will allow us to realise synthetic biomolecular machinery and designer enzymes in the longer term.  Measurements of energy landscapes combined with visualisation of enzyme movements will allow us to develop more accurate models for molecular machines.

 

What we are looking for…

You are a biophysicist with extensive experience in molecular biophysics and the application of a single-molecule technique such as FRET or optical tweezers. You have worked with biomolecules such as proteins. You are able to analyse single-molecule data quantitatively and apply biophysical models and theories. Experience with building single-molecule setups or optical instrumentation is desirable.

 

You are excited about working as part of a multi-disciplinary team composed of physicists, engineers, and biologists. You will work at the newly established Living Systems Institute, University of Exeter which provides state-of-the-art research facilities for realising one of the first optical approaches to study the energetics and dynamics of biomolecular machines:
