(01) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title:  Research Associate in Debris-Flow Dynamics

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Applications are invited for an outstanding Postdoctoral Research Associate to work on a Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) funded project on “Debris-flow dynamics: Understanding phase separation and wave formation”. The post is part of an international team of researchers studying the spontaneous formation of waves in debris flows. Waves vastly concentrate the energy within a debris flow, and strongly enhance their destructive potential, yet very little is known about how they form and coarsen. The project is led by Professor Nico Gray and Dr Chris Johnson at The University of Manchester and involves collaboration with scientists in Switzerland who collect field data from the Ill graben debris-flow observation station. This interdisciplinary project will use a combination of small-scale experiments, field data, mathematical theory and numerical computations to understand how debris-flow waves form. The successful applicant will have a strong background in mathematics, physics, engineering or quantitative Earth sciences, and preferably some experience in performing experiments and/or analysing field data. She/he must have a PhD in a relevant discipline e.g. physics/geophysics or applied mathematics/mechanics, and a proven ability to publish research findings.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Associate (STFC Consolidated Grant)

The Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics seeks a Post-Doctoral Research Associate in the area of instrumentation to work on an STFC Consolidated Grant project that aims to study and overcome the noise generation mechanisms in high electron mobility transistors (HEMTS). HEMTs form a crucial part of the low noise RF and microwave receivers used in radio astronomy, as well as those used in quantum technologies and particle physics. This project involves studying the noise generation mechanisms in HEMTs, exploring new surface treatments to facilitate the removal of heat from the HEMT’s conduction channel, and developing low noise amplifiers (LNAs) that can be cooled using liquid helium.

(04) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Associate in Astrophysics and Cosmology

The post-holder will work on data reduction, data processing methodology, data inference methods, and mock data simulations in the context of HI Intensity Mapping. They will have access to SKA pathfinder data from South African array MeerKAT, working with an international team of experts. Several hundred of hours of observations have already been made and preliminary results have spurred an recent application for a further 2,500 hours of MeerKAT time for a wide area survey. This post is envisaged to work on both the “on-the-fly” interferometric visibilities as well as the autocorrelation measurements, with the aim of transferring calibrations and flag tables between these data sets in order to produce a joint optimised data reduction pipeline for both. There will be opportunities for the post-holder to be heavily involved in the scientific exploitation of the MeerKAT data, working on the cosmological implications of the HI measurements and on the high angular resolution wide-field survey map. The MeerKAT observations are one of the world’s current leading experiments to make HI Intensity Mapping measurements and they are a direct pathfinder for one of the SKA’s high priority science objectives. The wide-field survey maps will provide a unique resource to the community by giving a high angular resolution, high sensitivity map of the extragalactic southern sky between 580 and 1015 MHz.

(08) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Associate in DNA Damage and Repair

Environmental exposure threats like UV light, ionizing radiation (IR), chemicals in food, drugs and tobacco smoke cause disease principally through damage to DNA. Consequently, biological systems have evolved to minimise or reverse this damage. The most toxic damage is double-strand breakage of DNA, and the repair of such damage is also prone to error, which can lead to hereditary defects such as microcephaly, primordial dwarfism and immune deficiencies, as well as causing cancers. Many components of the cellular machinery that brings the broken ends together include intrinsically disordered regions (IDRs). The roles of these regions remain poorly understood, as they are not detected by many experimental techniques, but they are likely to dynamically form short-lived ordered modules that mediate interactions between the repair machinery components. The candidate will focus on a selected set of these IDRs to identify which regions become most ordered, what structures they make and which other proteins they interact with, which – in the longer term – could open up new ways of targeting these regions and developing novel precision oncology drugs. This 3-year position starting from 1st March 2023 is funded by the MRC, and is targeted at highly motivated individuals who are looking for an exciting project to make new discoveries in the above research areas. The studies will integrate structural biology techniques, in particular NMR, cell biology, biochemistry, microscopy, mass spectrometry, biophysical and computational methods. In-depth experience in recombinant protein expression and purification, as well as different biochemistry techniques is essential. Specialist knowledge in the DNA damage response, especially DNA double-strand break repair by non-homologous end-joining, is desirable. Duties will include but are not limited to conducting individual and collaborative research projects in the areas specified above.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Associate in Fast Radio Bursts and Transients

The Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics seeks a Post-Doctoral Research Associate to be part of the MeerTRAP collaboration to search for Fast Radio Bursts and other transients using the MeerKAT telescope in South Africa. MeerTRAP uses MeerKAT to perform commensal searches for fast radio transients from milliseconds to seconds and uses its multiple beams and transient buffers to allow accurate localisations and performs multi-wavelength follow up. It also works with the MeerLICHT telescope to perform simultaneous optical observations to enable the detection of any associated prompt and/or afterglow emission associated with fast radio transients. The successful candidate will work with Prof. Ben Stappers, Prof. Rene Breton and the wider MeerTRAP collaboration – both at Manchester and across the world – to find and localise new FRBs.  They would also utilise simultaneous optical observations and pursue multi-wavelength studies. MeerTRAP has revealed a population of longer period radio emitting neutron stars, and the PDRA will also work on studying this new class of neutron stars along with other Galactic transients discovered by MeerTRAP.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Associate: Understanding the Role of the Host Immune System in Shaping Microbiome Dynamics

(How) do hosts control microbiome dynamics? Eco-evolutionary theory suggests the mammalian microbiome is best conceived as an “ecosystem on a leash” – a diverse community of microbes locked in fierce competition, but stabilized by host adaptations. However, this hypothesis has yet to be directly tested, and we still understand little of how hosts shape their microbiomes.​​​​​​​ In this Wellcome Trust funded project you will work with immunologists and computational biologists to explore how one key host adaptation – Immunoglobulin A – influences both the behavior of individual microbes and the dynamics of the microbiome as a whole. You will use a variety of NGS techniques to profile microbiome dynamics within mice, use new computational pipelines to infer the ecological interactions driving these dynamics, and use fine-scale experimental approaches to test your predictions.
