Position: Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Institution: University of Exeter
Location: Exeter, Devon, United Kingdom
Duties: Example projects include studying pattern formation during embryonic development, generation of collective oscillations in neuronal networks, transitions in the progression of type 2 diabetes or reversibility of anti-microbial resistance. The successful applicant will liaise with collaborators (based at the University of Exeter and elsewhere) to develop and refine mathematical models of these systems and will apply numerical and analytical techniques to study the dynamics produced by these models. The applicant will then work with the other team members within the Hub and collaborators to test model quantitative model predictions and validity
Requirements: Applicants will possess a relevant PhD or equivalent qualification/experience in a related field of study. The successful applicant will be an expert mathematical modelling and possess sufficient specialist knowledge in the discipline to develop research programmes and methodologies. The successful applicant will also be able to work collaboratively, supervise the work of others and act as team leader as required. Applicants will be able to work effectively with a range of people including clinicians, bioscientists and other mathematical modellers. They will have a knowledge of (or will be able to quickly gain one) analytical frameworks for studying dynamical systems such as bifurcation analysis, numerical integration techniques for efficient simulation of dynamical systems models
