Postdoc summary/title: Research Associate in Epidemiology/ Biostatistics
Opioid utilisation for non-cancer pain and related adverse outcomes have reached epidemic proportions in the US, Canada with rising trends in the UK 1-4. Opioids have led to a major societal burden in North America; however, less is known about their utilisation in vulnerable subgroups and safety in Europe and the UK. Some opioid users may be particularly vulnerable to related harms due to specific individual factors such as older age, specific comorbidities and polypharmacy. Maximising benefits and limiting risks of treatment for such patients is therefore a national public health priority. We will use state of art statistical models and novel study designs to evaluate the comparative safety of opioids in relation to short term and long-term safety outcomes. The programme of work will move risk estimation towards personalised risk, whereby patients can be informed of their individual risk of side effects before starting the drug. Although focussed on opioids, the skills and methods developed will have wider application for investigating the safety of other medications.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Associate in Robotics
This position is for research within RAICo1, a joint initiative developed by Sellafield Ltd and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) in collaboration with the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA), The University of Manchester, and the National Nuclear Laboratory. In Whitehaven, West Cumbria, RAICo1 is the first of a network of robotics and artificial intelligence hubs across the UK. Size reduction of existing radioactive waste is paramount for its relocation and safe storage in modern nuclear facilities. Due to the intrinsic hazard of such handled materials, robots are usually employed to move humans away from harm. Nonetheless, cutting material into smaller parts is usually time and labour-intensive. It requires engineers to define the sequence of cutting paths, program the robot to execute that sequence, and manually update the CAD models of the material being cut. This project will develop an automatic planner to generate the cutting sequence and the collision-free paths, enabling fixed-base manipulator robots to laser cut skips (containers) with minimum human intervention, reduced time, and increased reliability and flexibility. The outcomes of this research will be a stepping stone for future developments of fully autonomous robots for remote handling and size reduction.

(05) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postgraduate Research Associate in Computational Systems Biology
The post-holder will join a team of computational, mathematical and experimental biologists funded by a Wellcome Trust Discovery Award “Defining the spatiotemporal gene expression dynamics controlling embryonic patterning”. They will be responsible for developing and refining systems biology models of drosophila embryogenesis. This will include developing both stochastic models of high-resolution live cell imaging from individual genes (e.g. modelling transcription and translation processes) and spatio-temporal modelling of gene regulatory networks involving hundreds of genes. The project will require the integration of in-house and public datasets along with incorporating/adapting published gene regulatory network models for early embryogenesis. As well as developing models from the data, they will be required to carefully consider appropriate pre-processing, normalisation and signal processing, as these steps can be of critical importance for developing models from imaging and omics datasets. They will work with the rest of the team to improve and refine models through data-driven inference approaches. Models developed will be used to gain mechanistic insights and design/interpret perturbation experiments that will feed back to improve the model.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postgraduate Research Associate in Probabilistic Machine Learning for Biological Systems Modelling
The post-holder will join a team of computational, mathematical and experimental biologists funded by a Wellcome Trust Discovery Award “Defining the spatiotemporal gene expression dynamics controlling embryonic patterning”. They will be responsible for developing and applying probabilistic machine learning methods for modelling high-resolution spatio-temporal data (e.g. live cell imaging and spatial transcriptomics) collected during embryonic development. We are applying a range of methods, including but not limited to Gaussian process modelling, hidden Markov models and deep learning approaches. One promising approach that we would like to explore is the development of latent force models that can capture the spatio-temporal developmental dynamics, integrating gene regulatory network modelling with Gaussian process inference. We are generally interested in approaches that combine data-driven modelling (machine learning) with mechanistic modelling (systems biology). Models developed will be used to gain mechanistic insights and design/interpret perturbation experiments that will then feed back to further improve the model.

(07) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Associate (JE)
One of the biggest outstanding problems in biology is how we can predict evolution. This interdisciplinary project will combine the tools and techniques of molecular and synthetic biology with biophysics to study how the existing molecular mechanisms in bacterial cells determine evolution. Understanding this relationship will allow us to predict the effects of mutations, and hence improve our ability to predict evolution. This is particularly important when it comes to understanding and predicting the evolution of antibiotic resistance – one of the most important examples of how evolution affects human lives today, already causing over 50,000 deaths per year in the EU alone, in addition to dramatically extending hospital stays and increasing health care costs. In order to tackle this problem, we need to develop predictive approaches that will help us not only extend the usefulness of existing antibiotics, but also inform the development of longer-lasting novel drugs. The aim of this project is to improve our ability to predict multi-drug resistance evolution by understanding how the existing molecular mechanisms in the cell determine evolution. This project will involve constructing synthetic gene regulatory networks and experimentally probing them by introducing mutations into promoters and transcription factors that control the expression of multi-drug resistance pump, AcrAB-TolC. We aim to understand how biophysical mechanisms determine the effects of mutations in transcription factors and promoters, and hence how they drive resistance evolution. This project will dramatically improve our ability to predict antibiotic resistance evolution.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Associate in Multi-scale Characterisation of Geomaterials Related to Radioactive Waste Disposal Systems
The UK has been generating electricity from nuclear power for over sixty years. Nuclear power generates 15% of the UK’s electricity as of 2023, and current government plans call for this percentage to rise to ~25% by 2050. Consequently, the issue of safely disposing of the UK’s existing ~750,000 m3 Intermediate and High-Level Waste (ILW/HLW) and future waste is a clear priority. The UK government policy is to dispose of the higher activity wastes in an underground geologic disposal facility (GDF) at an estimated cost of £20-53 billion over a multi-decadal lifetime. One of the rock types identified as a potentially suitable host rock for the siting of a GDF are lower strength sedimentary rocks (LSSRs). The purpose of a GDF is the safe disposal of radioactive waste for periods of tens of thousands of years, in a manner that ensures that any transport of radioactive materials into the surrounding biosphere is kept below specified limits. Siting and construction of a GDF in LSSR will therefore require a quantitative understanding of both the physical and (biogeo)chemical properties of the host rocks surrounding a GDF. However, many fundamental gaps still exist in our knowledge of the issues related to performance of these host rocks as a geological barrier to radionuclide transport. Addressing these gaps requires fundamental new understanding which will require development and application of the next generation of experimental, analytical, and modelling approaches to meet the challenges of characterising key processes in these complex systems.

(21) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Associate in NMR Spectroscopy
The aim of the project is to develop new and improved 1D, 2D and 3D NMR methods to address some of the most challenging problems in the field of mixture analysis. In many areas (e.g. chemical process development, quality control, food science, metabolomics) the majority of the samples of interest are heterogeneous mixtures, and here NMR plays a pivotal role due to its non-destructive and quantitative nature. These often have very broad and crowded NMR spectra, due to the presence of many species with many different concentrations, and the spectra are therefore very difficult (sometimes impossible) to interpret. The project will focus on exploring novel strategies for obtaining clean and high-resolution NMR spectra, in order to allow the identification, quantification and structure determination of all components in mixtures. The project will involve experimental work using a range of spectrometers, with most work carried out on Bruker NEO 500, Bruker NEO 700, Bruker AV III 500, Varian/Agilent VNMRS 500, and Bruker AV III 400 spectrometers (with access to Bruker AVANCE III 400, 500, 600 and 800 instruments, and to cryogenic probes, as necessary); computer programming, mostly in C and Matlab, for data processing; and theoretical analysis, supported by simulation using Matlab and Mathematica.
