  • Post-Doctoral Research Assistant (FS0325)

    CareGiversPro-MMD is a Horizon 2020 funded project developing an mHealth application that is specifically targeted to patients with mild to moderate dementia and their care providers. The project is developing a tablet based, social networking tool, integrating a broad diagnostic approach, focusing on the live-in family caregiver-patient dyad as the unit of care. The system is being piloted in four European centres, one of which is the Hull Memory Clinic.

    A group of post-doctoral researchers are being recruited to contribute to the operation of the pilot in Hull.

    The pilot is planned to run for approximately 18 months. Study dyads will be identified through the Memory Clinic and dementia groups and each dyad will need to be trained to use the system. During the pilot, the role holder will be responsible for identifying and inducting new dyads, and providing support for existing dyads. The social networks will require moderation and new information will need to be added.  Experience in psycho-social interventions would be an advantage.  Monthly statistics need to be collected and collated between the four pilot sites, and analyses performed. The post holder will also participate in dissemination of study results, via Twitter and Facebook, and authorship of academic papers and participating in conferences.

    Funding is available for two, full time equivalent posts: possibly achieved by more than 2 part time positions. Flexibility will be possible regarding days and hours to be worked per week, with the possibility of the days per week being varied throughout the fixed term period. 

    This project is funded until 31 December 2018.

    This post requires an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.

    To discuss these roles informally, please contact Kevin Paulson on 01482 465118, k.paulson@hull.ac.uk, or Emma Wolverson on 01482 464170, e.wolverson@hull.ac.uk

    A fixed term post for 12 months is available from the 1st January 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter in the School of Mathematics and Physical Sciences to work on the EPSRC funded project on Enhanced Molybdenum Cluster Based Materials for Biomedical Optical Oxygen Sensing.

    The successful applicant will join a team at Hull and will collaborate with researchers from Universities of Aston and Edinburgh with the aim to develop biocompatible and robust materials for use in optical oxygen sensing for biological tissue. This will be achieved by combining synthesis, material processing, optical measurements (in Hull) and testing in organ models (in Edinburgh). Specifically, the post holder will be required to design and prepare nano- and micro-structured polymer materials doped by inorganic clusters, perform works on testing of their oxygen sensing ability and optimisation.

    The successful candidate should have a PhD in Chemistry, Materials Science or any other relevant discipline. They should also have extensive experience in at least one of the following fields: Coordination Chemistry, Organic Polymer Synthesis and/or Processing Solid State synthesis.

  • Postdoctoral Researcher in flood hazard and morphodynamic modelling (AE0104)

    The Energy and Environment Institute at the University of Hull is seeking to appoint a Post-Doctoral Research Assistant working on Earth Surface Dynamics. Initially, the appointed candidate will work on the NERC funded CHEST (Combination Hazard of Extreme rainfall, storm Surge & high Tide on estuarine infrastructure) and will subsequently work on projects, including the EU HYDRALAB+ project, linking numerical models and experimental models of climate change impacts. We are seeking an enthusiastic and talented individual with research interests in modelling fluvial and estuarine flows as well as sediment transport and morphodynamic modelling.

    You will use the CAESAR-Lisflood model to simulate combination hazards in two UK estuaries in collaboration with project industry partners, the Environment Agency and Network Rail. An additional part of the CHEST project will see this methodology rolled out to other potential industrial partners and you will be expected to take a key role in this dissemination process. This NERC funded part of the position will be carried out in collaboration with co-workers at Bangor University and it is anticipated that some time will be spent working with them.

    The second phase of the project involves linking results from physical model (flume) experiments to numerical model outputs. As part of the EU funded Hydralab project a large volume of data from catchment scale physical model simulations of basin evolution under different rainfall regimes has been captured. These data represent a unique opportunity to validate landscape scale numerical models (such as CAESAR-Lisflood) and thus explore time and space representations across the approaches.

    Experience in using the CAESAR-Lisflood model and experimental modelling would be an advantage and you will be expected to lead data analysis, synthesis and dissemination of research.

    The post will run to the end of November 2019.

    Application is by covering letter and CV uploaded via the University on-line recruitment system.

    For informal enquiries please contact, Professor Tom Coulthard E: T.Coulthard@hull.ac.uk T: 01482 466065
