This full-time post is available immediately on a fixed term basis until 31 March 2022.
The College wishes to recruit an Impact Fellow to support the work of Dr Ross Brown. This UK Government funded post is from 1 October 2021 on a fixed term basis until 31 March 2022. The successful applicant will refine and validate an existing computer model (Stoner et al., 2021 in review) for predicting concentrations of HABs toxins (produced by Dinophysis species) in shellfish farmed along the south coast of Cornwall.
The Impact Fellow will involve incorporate in the model:
1) Increased temporal resolution of Dinophysis HAB events using contemporary data from water and shellfish sampling (twice per week) at two HAB hotspots on the south coast of Cornwall.
2) Increased spatial resolution of Dinophysis HAB events, taking into account coastal boundary effects at the selected case study sites. A possible approach would be to use Diffusion Based Gaussian Processes.
The successful applicant will be able to present information on research progress and outcomes, communicate complex information, orally, in writing and electronically. You will also be able to develop research objectives, projects and proposals; identify sources of research funding and contribute to the process of securing funds and make presentations at conferences and other events.
Applicants will possess a relevant PhD or possess an equivalent qualification/experience in a related field of study and be able to demonstrate sufficient knowledge in the discipline and of research methods and techniques to work within established research programmes. Applicants will be able to provide evidence of research activity and published research (in statistics and/or data science), experience in the use and coding of R statistical programs. The successful applicant will also be able to work collaboratively, supervise the work of others and act as team leader as required.
