University of Warwick - School of Engineering

Fixed term contract for 3 years.

You will undertake research on an exciting new project funded by The Leverhulme Trust. You will assist the Principal Investigator and project partners in the successful execution of the project, by developing new mathematical tools, analytical design/analysis methods and computational software in order to develop a comprehensive theory of feedback control for chemical reaction networks. You will undertake independent and collaborative research and will be expected to write up the results of your research for publication. You will be expected to deal with any management/administration problems that may arise from the project and produce and present regular project reports ensuring that the project objectives and deadlines are met.

You will have a developing research profile in the area of systems/control theory, mathematical modelling, or systems/synthetic biology, with the ability to publish high quality research outputs, and you will be able to contribute to the development of follow-on funding proposals.
