Post-Doctoral Research Associate in Applied Mathematics @ Bristol University

Post-Doctoral Research Associate in Applied Mathematics

Job number   ACAD102664
Division/School  School of Mathematics
Contract type  Fixed term contract staff
Working pattern  Full time
Salary  £32,548 – £36,613 per annum
Closing date for applications  30-Apr-2018
Please Note: This is a “rolling advert” with a nominal close date only. Applications are welcome at any time and the timing of the selection process will be dependent on the applications received.

We are looking to recruit passionate and driven researchers to join a ground-breaking, multidisciplinary project as Post-Doctoral Research Associate, tenable from 01 May 2018 for a duration of 2-years with the potential of an extension for a further year.

Positions are funded by an EPSRC Programme grant “Chemistry and Mathematics in Phase Space” (CHAMPS), which seeks to design new methods and tools to cope with the explosion in dynamical information coming out of modern experiments and classical and quantum molecular dynamics simulations in chemistry and chemical biology. To date, multidimensional datasets (e.g., from molecular dynamics simulations) tend to focus only on the 3n-dimensional configuration-space data.  We aim to utilize methods in nonlinear dynamics and machine learning to cope with 6n-dimensional phase-space representations of molecular dynamics datasets. This will enable the formulation of comprehensible analytical models which capture the key dynamics of complex systems, and provide fundamental microscopic insight into the behaviour of dynamical systems.

This role suits ambitious, motivated graduates starting out in a career either in academia or in industry. This Bristol-based programme offers a significant degree of flexibility: you will be offered the chance to work with investigators at Leeds, Cardiff and Imperial College London, as well as working alongside industrial partners (e.g., Dassault Systems, Oracle, interactive Scientific, etc.) to co-develop research ideas and skills working with several partners across a range of exciting new areas. This unique offering aims to provide role-holders the opportunity to establish strong professional networks spanning academia and industry, along with the experience of trans-disciplinary and collaborative working culture.

This exciting, unprecedented partnership between mathematicians and chemists will bridge several critical research themes. The scientists trained in this programme will develop unmatched interdisciplinary skills spanning mathematics, computational science, molecular simulation, scientific software development, high-performance computing, big data analysis, and machine learning. We welcome candidates with the drive and determination to focus on and organize multiple projects concurrently. This role would be an excellent stepping stone for those scientists that may be thinking in the long-term of a career in either academia or industry.

We welcome applicants who hold or will soon hold a PhD in subject areas that are relevant to the larger programme aims, including mathematics, chemistry, physics, computer science, or related areas.

For informal enquiries and further detail, please feel free to contact Professor Steve Wiggins:

Note: It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure their referees send a letter of reference by email to at the point of application.

The University is committed to creating and sustaining a fully inclusive culture.  We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and communities.

Closing Date: 30th April
