Position: Research Fellow in multi-scale mathematical modelling of soil and plants
Institution: University of Southampton
Location: Southampton, Hampshire, United Kingdom
Duties: The aim of the project is to combine multiscale modelling of two fluid flow (water and air) with the flow of multiple solutes that are undergoing binding reactions in the fluid phase whilst simultaneously accounting for all biotic effects such as microbial biodegradation, plant solute uptake and/or exudation and biophysical effects
Requirements: Track record of producing peer reviewed publications. You need to be familiar with homogenisation theory and associated numerical techniques. PhD or equivalent in applied mathematics or computational modelling (or other numerate subject). Applications for Research Fellow positions will be considered from candidates who are working towards or nearing completion of a relevant PhD qualification. The title of Research Fellow will be applied upon successful completion of the PhD. Prior to the qualification being awarded, the title of Senior Research Assistant will be assigned
   
Text: Research Fellow in multi-scale mathematical modelling of soil and plants Mechanical Engineering Location: Highfield Campus Salary: £30,395 to £37,345 per annum Full Time Fixed Term (1 year with possibility of extension) Closing Date: Saturday 06 October 2018 Interview Date: To be confirmed Reference: 1026518BX-R We are looking to recruit a multiscale mathematical modeller to develop new multiscale mathematical models to understand how plants and soil interact. You will be joining an interdisciplinary team of 8 experimental and mathematical researchers with an excellent publication record and funding from ERC, BBSRC and EPSRC. The head of the group has an excellent record in supporting PDRAs in obtaining personal early career fellowships from the Royal Society, Royal Academy of Engineering, EPSRC, Leverhulme Trust, Royal Commission 1851 etc. This post is initially for 1 year to start as soon as possible, with the possibility of extension for another year. Main roles and responsibilities We are looking for an applied mathematician or engineer who is familiar with multiscale homogenisation theories and associated computational techniques with experience in implementing numerical simulations in 3D. The aim of the project is to combine multiscale modelling of two fluid flow (water and air) with the flow of multiple solutes that are undergoing binding reactions in the fluid phase whilst simultaneously accounting for all biotic effects such as microbial biodegradation, plant solute uptake and/or exudation and biophysical effects. What do they need to do the role successfully To be successful you will need a track record of producing peer reviewed publications. You will hold a PhD or equivalent in applied mathematics or computational modelling (or other numerate subject) and you need to be familiar with homogenisation theory and associated numerical techniques. The knowledge of Comsol Multiphysics and/or OpenFoam for 3D simulations would also be useful, but not necessary, provided you can demonstrate that you would be able to acquire these skills in fast and efficient manner. About the University The University of Southampton is an institution in the top one per cent of world universities* and one of the UK’s top 15 research-intensive universities. We have an international reputation for research, teaching and enterprise. About the Faculty You will join a leading Engineering Faculty with an excellent record of collaborative research with industry and academic institutions in the UK and abroad. In September 2013 an Athena SWAN Bronze award was received in recognition of our continued commitment to improving equality for women in science and engineering. The Faculty offers exceptional research facilities in the areas of fluids, structures and their interactions, including a new world-class fluid dynamics facilities complex in the Boldrewood Engineering Campus, complete with a 138m towing tank. Application procedure You should submit your completed online application form at www.jobs.soton.ac.uk . The application deadline will be midnight on the closing date stated above. If you need any assistance, please call Georgie Warren (Recruitment Team) on 44 (0) 23 8059 7749. Please quote reference 1026518BX-R on all correspondence. Informal enquiries to Professor Tiina Roose (T.Roose@soton.ac.uk) At the University of Southampton, we value diversity and equality. *QS World University Rankings 2012-13 * Applications for Research Fellow positions will be considered from candidates who are working towards or nearing completion of a relevant PhD qualification. The title of Research Fellow will be applied upon successful completion of the PhD. Prior to the qualification being awarded, the title of Senior Research Assistant will be assigned.
