UoMaH is recruiting for a Research Fellow in Extreme Science. The University of Manchester at Harwell wishes to increase its capacity in the area of extreme science and is offering a prestigious academic position to a research fellow that will include development of cells and environments to enable research and testing of extreme science phenomena. The position is for a 5 year period and is a joint venture between the University of Manchester (UoM), the European Office of Aerospace Research Development (EOARD), and the national facilities at Harwell.
The fellow will be expected to propose beamtime experiments, leveraging the new experimental capacity at the various facilities, and to write further research council applications to leverage funding to support launch of additional programmes. We thus envisage advances in both equipment, technical reach and available resources to fuel a rapid increase in output in the later years. We are looking for candidates who have a track record in generating peer-reviewed papers, winning and directing grant/project income and teaching under- and postgraduate students. Guidance and review will be judged though presentations to EOARD, UoM and the National Facilities.
