Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Fellow in Quantum Communications

Are you an experienced and ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge?  Do you have a background in quantum communications?   Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research intensive Universities?

 Quantum key distribution (QKD) provides unbreakable, future-proof security against the vulnerabilities of most cryptosystems currently in operation. QKD has been implemented mostly over dedicated channels and between two parties. Before current communication vulnerabilities are exploited, it is essential to facilitate the use of QKD technology for any two users at any distance, via a network. This project addresses the theoretical analysis of quantum communications networks, especially those relying on satellite nodes and/or quantum repeaters.

(28) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Fellow in Atmospheric Chemistry

 As a Research Fellow in Atmospheric Chemistry you will join a 3-year NERC-funded project to develop and deploy a novel field instrument to make long-term measurements of OH reactivity. OH reactivity represents the total loss rate of OH radicals in the atmosphere, and is the inverse of the chemical lifetime of OH. Since most species emitted into the atmosphere react with OH radicals, measurements of OH reactivity in ambient air provide a means to quantify the presence of pollutants in an air mass, and the extent to which they contribute to the production of secondary pollutants such as ozone and secondary organic aerosol (SOA). OH reactivity can thus be considered to represent the total loading of reactive pollutants in an air mass that oxidise to secondary pollutants.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Research Fellow in Cardiovascular Cell Biology

This post is available to work as a Research Fellow on a Heart Research UK-funded research project, within the School of Biomedical Sciences. The research aims to extend the repertoire of approaches for disease diagnosis to include the active recovery of protein biomarkers from tissues. It will exploit a method that we have developed which biopsies cells without killing them (Smith et al., 2019, Scientific Reports 9(1):16408). This project will use the new technique to collect proteins from cells early in disease progress, to see if they can be used as ‘biomarkers’ to assess when cells have been changed by disease, and track changes as disease develops. The project will use proteomics data already obtained from a mouse model of diabetes mellitus, sampled using our newly-developed method (application of styrene maleic acid). These data will be built on using samples from human tissue and subsequent protemics analysis.

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.
