The School of Mathematics & Statistics is looking to recruit a Research Associate/Fellow to make a leading contribution to the Predict4Resilience Strategic Innovation Fund project working with Dr Jethro Browell, Dr Daniela Castro-Camilo, and industry partners Scottish Power Energy Networks, Sia Partners and others. This project is developing tools for forecasting weather-related faults in electricity distribution networks. The successful candidate, working with Drs Browell and Castro-Camilo, will develop the statistical methodologies that underpin this forecasting capability using their knowledge of statistics and data science. The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to the writing of research publications and proposals, help manage project delivery and budgets, and collaborate with academic and industry partners. This is a research role but the University of Glasgow, and this project, offer opportunities for development that would suit a candidate wanting to pursue a career in research, academia or industry.
For appointment at Grade 8, the candidate is expected to perform the above duties with a higher degree of independence, leadership and responsibility, particularly in relation to planning, funding, collaborating and publishing research, and mentoring colleagues, establish and sustain a track record of independent and joint published research to establish and maintain your expert reputation in the subject area and develop/implement a suitable research strategy.
Informal enquiries about the role are welcomed, and should be addressed to Dr Jethro Browell (Jethro.Browell@glasgow.ac.uk) in the first instance.
