(04) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Research Associate (Job Number: 24000475)

The role includes work on two research projects where Durham University is a partner to research funded by the Norwegian Research Council. The projects are led by colleagues at the university of Oslo (‘Include’) and the Fridtjof Nansen Institute (‘Powerpoor’) and managed at Durham University by Professor Simone Abram.

The Include Research Centre for Socially Inclusive Energy Transitions (Include) is a research centre that produces knowledge about how to realise a socially just low-carbon society through socially inclusive processes and in close collaboration between researchers and partners in the public, private and voluntary sectors. Include is hosted by the Centre for Development and the Environment (SUM) at the University of Oslo (UiO). Include has six research partners – five in in Norway and Durham University in the UK – and 23 additional partners in Norway. (see https://www.sum.uio.no/english/include/about/)

PowerPoor is the first research project to systematically investigate energy poverty (EP) in the Norwegian context in comparison with the UK and other countries, with EP linked to the energy transition. The project addresses an issue that recently entered the Norwegian agenda, but which is in dire need of sound research for evidence-based knowledge and solutions. The four-year project is led by Dr. Tor Håkon Jackson Inderberg and the Fridtjof Nansen Institute, the leading research institute on climate and energy management in Europe.

(05) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Research Associate or Research Associate in Computer Science (Job Number: 24000510)

Applications are invited for a Research Associate or Postdoctoral Research Associate to join our core software development team led by Prof Tobias Weinzierl. We particularly want to encourage candidates with a first degree (BSc or MSc) in sciences who consider staying in academia yet have a liking for software development, or PhDs who found themselves enjoying software development more than other aspects of academic live throughout their studies. Flexible working arrangements are available.

In close collaboration with the PI, the applicant will identify tasks and software components that are mission-critical for the underlying research (such as components which consume too much compute time and need to be ported to GPUs, third-party components that should be coupled, improved postprocessing scripts, or support for novel input file formats for new experiments) and implement these software blocks independently. The applicant will be embedded into a team of researchers, all contributing multiple software building blocks to the overall compute ecosystem. The delivered software will directly be used by collaboration partners – primarily in their earthquake and gravitational wave simulation codes.

Deadline :  10-May-2024

About Durham University, England – Official Website

Durham University is a collegiate public research university in Durham, England, founded by an Act of Parliament in 1832 and incorporated by royal charter in 1837. It was the first recognised university to open in England for more than 600 years, after Oxford and Cambridge, and is thus one of the institutions to be described as the third-oldest university in England. As a collegiate university its main functions are divided between the academic departments of the university and its 17 colleges. In general, the departments perform research and provide teaching to students, while the colleges are responsible for their domestic arrangements and welfare.

The university is a member of the Russell Group of British research universities after previously being a member of the 1994 Group. Durham is also affiliated with the regional N8 Research Partnership and international university groups including the Matariki Network of Universities and the Coimbra Group. The university estate includes 63 listed buildings, ranging from the 11th-century Durham Castle to a 1930s Art Deco chapel. The university also owns and manages the Durham World Heritage Site in partnership with Durham Cathedral. The university’s ownership of the World Heritage Site includes Durham Castle, Palace Green, and the surrounding buildings including the historic Cosin’s Library. It was Sunday Times University of the Year for 2005, and the Times and Sunday Times Sports University of the Year for 2015, and was awarded a Queen’s Anniversary Prize in 2018. Durham University Student Volunteering and Outreach was awarded the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service in 2020.

Among British universities, it had the sixth highest average UCAS Tariff for new entrants in 2018 and the third lowest proportion of state-school educated students starting courses in 2016, at 62.9 per cent (fifth lowest compared to its benchmark). The chancellor of the university is Sir Thomas Allen, who succeeded Bill Bryson in 2012. Current and emeritus academics include 14 Fellows of the Royal Society, 17 Fellows of the British Academy, 14 Fellows of the Academy of Social Sciences, 5 Fellows of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, 2 Fellows of the Royal Society of Arts and 2 Fellows of the Academy of Medical Sciences. Durham graduates have long used the Latin post-nominal letters Dunelm after their degree, from Dunelmensis (of, belonging to, or from Durham)
