(01) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Fellow in Robotic Additive Manufacturing
You will become part of the Real Robotics lab at the University of Leeds, which is currently involved in research projects of total value >£20m. The lab’s research includes robotic manufacturing and manufacturing of robots, including world class robot fabrication facilities, and robotic systems to inspect and repair city infrastructure. Current major externally funded projects include: Pipebots, Trustworthy Autonomous Systems Verifiability Node, and recently awarded strength in places funding linked with the Advanced Machinery and Productivity Institute (the AMP Institute). The real robotics lab consists of ten full time academics and technicians, more than ten post-doctoral researchers more than 20 PhD students.
Deadline : 25 May 2022
(02) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Fellow in Pure Mathematics
We are looking for a Research Fellow to join our EPSRC-funded project “Model theory, Diophantine geometry and combinatorics”, led by Dr Pantelis Eleftheriou. As part of the project, you will work on the boundary of model theory, group theory and geometry to develop new insights about definable groups, Diophantine problems (around Pila-Wilkie) and graph-combinatorial conjectures (such as Zarankiewich, Erdos-Hajnal). In particular, you will consider those problems in various tame expansions of o-minimal structures (such as those having o-minimal open core, d-minimal structures, distal structures, H-structures, lovely pairs, RCVFs, and CODFs), and explore the transferring of tools from those settings to the general NIP setting (Not the Independence Property).
Deadline : 19 May 2022
(03) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Fellow in Biochemistry/Cell Biology
We are looking for an outstanding research fellow to join a well-established interdisciplinary team that is investigating how proteins aggregate into amyloid fibrils and cause disease. This Royal Society-funded post-doctoral fellowship aims to determine the mechanisms of amyloid formation in vitro, in cells and in model organisms. You will focus on contrasting protein systems, those involved in neurodegeneration (a-synuclein (aSyn) associated with Parkinson’s disease), a functional amyloid (CPEB/Orb2, involved in the formation and storage of long-term memories), and a protein involved in systemic amyloid formation (IAPP). Specifically, you will use biochemical approaches to modify the structures of the protein aggregates and determine their effect on cellular function, using primary cells, cell lines and relevant tissues. In addition, you will investigate how novel small molecules that modulate amyloid formation for a variety of proteins discovered in the group affect the cellular consequences of amyloid formation. The outcome will be a transformation in our understanding of how amyloid fibrils create or destroy memory, and new opportunities to target the dynamic interactome of amyloid fibril assemblies for human benefit.
Deadline : 11 May 2022
(04) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Fellow in Nutrition and Lifestyle Analytics
A Research Fellow is required to work on a major project, funded by the Institute of Grocery Distribution (IGD) – a social impact organisation – to evaluate the impact of pilot trials to promote healthier and more sustainable diets in an in-store setting. The Research Fellow will analyse customer sales/loyalty card data in combination with the nutrition/health metrics and sustainability indicators. The programme works with the IGD and their 20 retailer and manufacturer working group members, who are implementing consumer behaviour change interventions
Deadline : 11 May 2022
(05) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Fellow in Data Analytics
As an experienced data handler, you will contribute to the development of grant proposals to research councils, paying particular attention to the creation of Data Management Plan statements. As well as developing new complex, inter-relational databases for the School’s studies and research, you will oversee the School’s existing databases and will use your extensive knowledge to incorporate new data sources into them, implementing changes and improving data validation algorithms. You will also take responsibility for operational planning within your own area, monitoring achievement against those plans and addressing any issues that arise, using your own initiative.
Deadline : 10 May 2022
(06) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Fellow in Nanobubbles for Infection
Working closely with a second Research Fellow in the School of Chemistry, you will join a multidisciplinary team based in the Schools of Physics & Astronomy, Electronic Engineering, Chemistry and Medicine (Prof Steve Evans, Dr Zhan Ong, Prof Steve Freear, Prof Bruce Turnbull, and Dr Jon Sandoe) to work on an EPSRC funded project to develop the use of microbubbles and nanobubbles for targeting and treatment of microbial biofilm infections.
Deadline : 10 May 2022
(07) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Fellow in Nanomagnetism
This project is to pioneer research in molecular interfaces and nanomagnetism as part of a project in collaboration with Trinity College Dublin and the Scientific Computing Department of STFC. This includes work on novel effects discovered at Leeds such as spin ordering in metallo-molecular multilayers, and the use of molecular layers to tune magnetic interactions for spintronics.
Deadline : 08 May 2022
About University of Leeds, West Yorkshire, England – Official Website
The University of Leeds is a public research university in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. It was established in 1874 as the Yorkshire College of Science. In 1884 it merged with the Leeds School of Medicine (established 1831) and was renamed Yorkshire College. It became part of the federal Victoria University in 1887, joining Owens College (which became the University of Manchester) and University College Liverpool (which became the University of Liverpool). In 1904 a royal charter was granted to the University of Leeds by King Edward VII.
The university has 36,330 students, the 5th largest university in the UK (out of 169). From 2006 to present, the university has consistently been ranked within the top 5 (alongside the University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, the University of Nottingham and the University of Edinburgh) in the United Kingdom for the number of applications received. Leeds had an income of £789.6 million in 2019/20, of which £139.9 million was from research grants and contracts. The university has financial endowments of £82.1 million (2019–20), ranking outside the top ten British universities by financial endowment.
Notable alumni include current Leader of the Labour Party Keir Starmer, former Secretary of State Jack Straw, former co-chairman of the Conservative Party Sayeeda Warsi, Piers Sellers (NASA astronaut) and six Nobel laureates.
