We are a world class research-intensive university. We deliver teaching and learning of the highest quality. We play a leading role in economic, social and cultural development of the North East of England. Attracting and retaining high-calibre people is fundamental to our continued success.
This is an exciting opportunity to join the Newcastle University, School of Computing as a Research Assistant/Associate to work on the HORIZON European infrastructure project BioIndustry 4.0. This is multi-millions pound project which will take BioIndustry to the next level of sophistication by incorporating Digital Twins and an advanced Data Fabric for online control of bioproduction processes. It is composed of an interdisciplinary team (including biologists, computer scientists and AI experts) from countries including France, the Netherlands, Greece, Germany, and the UK. Specifically, you will contribute to a work package focused on data and metadata management for the development of industrial biotechnology infrastructure. This infrastructure will connect sensor and other measurement device outputs and associated metadata from running bioprocesses with modelling and AI-based Digital Twins for online prediction and control. You will work within the Interdisciplinary Computing and Complex Biosystems (ICOS) research group within the School of Computing at Newcastle University. The ICOS group develops cutting edge computing approaches to biological and biomedical research, including Synthetic Biology, AI/ML, and data analytics. As part of this project you will be funded to travel to overseas locations for face-to-face meetings, research visits and conferences.
We are seeking a highly motivated individual who has demonstrable communication skills, who is a consummate team-player and has previous exposure and thus the ability to produce high quality outputs under the direction of the Principal Investigator (PI).
We are committed to building and maintaining a fair and inclusive working environment and we would be happy to discuss arrangements for flexible and/or blended working.
This position is available on a full-time or part-time, fixed-term basis, to start immediately and is tenable for 20 months for full time position from start date (with possibility of extension). Contract length is longer for part time position depending on contract hours.
