Postdoc Position in Mathematics at Imperial College London

A new opening postdoctoral scholar position in computer science is available at Imperial College London, UK. The funds for this fellowship are available for 12 months. The deadline for applying is March 15, 2020.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for the appointment of a Research Associate in Professor Zoltan Takats's group as part of the cancer research UK (CRUK) Grand Challenge project based at Imperial College London. The group specialises in state-of-the-art mass spectrometry approaches using a combination of different technologies such as ESI, DESI and MALDI. The group is also in the forefront of technological development in the field of ambient ionization applicable for clinical mass spectrometry analysis, such as the invention of rapid evaporative ionization mass spectrometry (REIMS), which is the same technology used for iKnife.

The purpose of the post is the continued development of novel data processing (pre-processing) and data analytics (post-processing) workflows for the integration and interpretation of multi-omics mass spectrometric imaging data acquired by the members of the CRUK Grand Challenge 'Rosetta' consortium. The corresponding datasets include MALDI, DESI, SIMS and CyTOF data of animal models (genetically engineered mouse models, patient-derived xenografts) as well as clinical specimens.

Key responsibilities will include taking initiative in the planning of research and assisting with the writing of reports to research sponsors. You may also be involved in contributing to new bids for research grants which will allow you to develop experience in research grant design and writing.

Applicants should hold a PhD or MSc in mathematics, physics, computer science or a closely related discipline, or equivalent research, industrial or commercial experience.

The post will provide you with opportunities for supervision of BSc students, MSc students and to support supervision of PhD candidates. Experiences in other teaching roles, including lecturing, will be enabled as part of the broad range of career development opportunities that Imperial College makes available to its post-doctoral research staff.

This full-time position is offered for a fixed term of 12 months in the first instance and will be based at the South Kensington Campus.

Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as a Research Assistant within the salary range 35,477 – 38,566 per annum.

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College's care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level.
