This full-time post is available from 01/02/22, on a fixed term basis, until 31/01/23.
The Translational Research Exchange @ Exeter (established through a 5 year Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Award) is directed by Neil Gow FRS (Professor of Microbiology and Deputy Vice Chancellor for Research and Impact) alongside Co-Directors Krasimira Tsaneva-Atanasova (Professor of Biomedical Modelling), Ivana Gudelj (Professor of Evolutionary Systems Biology) and Inês Barroso (Professor of Diabetes). These Professors, together with our Steering Group, will play an important role in mentoring the Fellows as well as utilising the TREE to establish new collaborations between research areas and clinical practice. The environment will allow the appointed Fellows to gain key data generating methodologies, ensuring their awareness of data control and assessment. This balance of research and training provides a unique environment for the appointed Fellows to establish their own independent research careers within the biomedical domain. For more information about TREE, please visit TREE website at https://www.exeter.ac.uk/tree/.
This post is expected to get involved in and contribute to various TREE activities (https://www.exeter.ac.uk/tree/). This will include pump priming, co-creating and consolidating both new and existing research partnerships; training and advising clinicians and biomedical researchers in areas aligned to their core expertise; and mentoring of students, thus enhancing the interdisciplinary research ethos within the University. We welcome applicants who would wish to pursue this role part-time, and we are able to support flexible working patterns.
We are willing to offer a flexible secondment arrangement for internal candidates who are interested in this role and would like to be seconded within TREE for 12 months.
The successful applicant will 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.
Candidates are required to have a high level of analytical ability and to be able to apply these skills to areas outside of their own immediate research area, to be able to communicate complex and conceptual ideas to a range of groups, including members of the public, and to participate as part of an interdisciplinary team to develop new research ideas. We are particularly looking for candidates with skills in one of these areas: bioinformatics, machine learning and statistical modelling. Successful candidates will have an interest in applying their quantitative knowledge to a broad range of biomedical and clinical problems.
