Location: York
Salary: £40,927 to £50,296 per year.
Hours: Full Time

Department
The University of York has established the School of Physics, Engineering and Technology (PET) that will formally launch in August 2022. The School will bring together existing strengths in the departments of Electronic Engineering and Physics and allow expansion into new areas. As a School, equality, diversity, and inclusion are central to our working environment and we strive to provide a working environment which allows all staff and students to contribute fully, to flourish, and to excel. We aim to inspire young people to engage with science and engineering through our outreach work.

The York Physics of Life (PoL) Group in the School of PET at the University of York comprises approximately 50 researchers who combine both biophysics/biological physics experiment and theory, whose research activities span multiple length scales from quantum biology and individual molecules through to single-cell physics and the biophysics of cell populations and complex tissues. PoL is one of PET’s major discovery research groupings. Since PoL’s inception in 2018 there have been significant emergent activities that align either directly with addressing biological questions using physical sciences techniques and analysis, or with developing new physics ideas inspired by the life sciences, including the use of biological or bio-inspired devices and materials.

Role
The primary role of the PoL Research Officer is to help co-ordinate and support research activities within PoL for 80% of their time, whilst developing their own independent research activities for the remaining 20%. They will support both experimental and theoretical activities across the PoL research portfolio. They will manage the provision and access to experimental theoretical/computational equipment used across PoL, directing the research support needed within the PoL groups and liaising with collaborating researchers. They will act as a key point of contact with other research support staff both within PET, and across other departments and research centres in the University and externally, to best facilitate the support of the activities of PoL researchers.

Skills, Experience & Qualification needed
You will have:

  • PhD in an area which includes substantive biophysics components.
  • Knowledge / understanding of experimental and theoretical/computational biophysical methods to engage in high-quality research.
  • In-depth specialist knowledge in at least one experimental and one theoretical/computational biophysics research technique and methodology.
  • Advanced and specialist IT knowledge.
  • Evidenced active participation in the planning and advancement of research projects.
  • Demonstrable in-depth postdoctoral experience in biophysics research.
  • Proven ability to attract and obtain external research funding.
  • Successful management of research projects including supervision of the work of others and providing expert advice and guidance to teams.
  • Evidence of dissemination of scholarly work which may include: the presentation of papers at conferences and workshops; participation in public engagement events to disseminate research; the publishing of chapters in textbooks, articles or reviews in academic journals or elsewhere in which you have made a major/lead contribution; the development of websites.
