The Vice-Chancellor’s Research Fellow (VCRF) is a prestigious position that provides outstanding candidates with the opportunity to shape their field of research and build a career in research.

An appointment to this role may require an Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) certificate.

Main duties and responsibilities

The VCRF in Neuromorphic Computing will be embedded in a leading team of researchers who advance computational olfactory neuroscience, mapping the chemical space of odorants, electronic gas sensing, and gas-based navigation. The successful candidate will therefore have the unique opportunity to develop an internationally leading research agenda in this field.

The candidate will be associated to the Biocomputation group that has a strong international reputation in exploring computation in the brain and translating these processes to algorithms.

The VCRF is expected to publish research articles of high significance, rigour, and originality, to disseminate research world-wide at conferences and workshops, and to interact with collaborators around the globe. We also expect the VCRF to participate in bids to secure external funding. In accord with the CONCORDAT for professional development of researchers, the candidate may be given the opportunity to undertake a limited amount of appropriate teaching, upon mutual agreement.

Skills and experience required  

The successful candidate will already have established themselves as an independent researcher capable of developing a programme of research activity within the scope of the project. A track record related to neuromorphic computing, electronic olfaction, or computational neuroscience is therefore expected, documented by publications in peer-reviewed journals.

The fellow should have knowledge of research methodology appropriate for the subject area, e.g., data science and machine learning, spiking network simulations, event-based signal processing or other relevant methods.

The candidate should be able to establish a good working relationship within the group, the School of Physics, Engineering and Computer Science, and with external collaborators. We are looking for candidates who can demonstrate the ability to effectively work in a research team. Excellent oral and written communication skills in both spoken and written English are required. Previous success in securing external funding is desirable.

Qualifications required:

You will be educated with an undergraduate honours degree at a minimum 2:2 (or equivalent qualification) in a relevant discipline. You will also hold a PhD degree, or close to completion (no more than 3 months prior to viva) in a quantitative research-oriented discipline, e.g., computer science, mathematics, physics, chemistry, computational neuroscience, or related disciplines or equivalent experience.
