  • PDRA (Knowledge Exchange and Innovation) in Circular Bio-economies

    Code: (AE0161)

    (Knowledge Exchange and Innovation)

    The University of Hull is part of a project funded by Research England to promote the development of a bioeconomy across Yorkshire, the Humber region and the Tees Valley.  The bioeconomy uses biological resources for economic purposes including food, energy generation and also as components in manufacturing complex materials.  The fast-growing bioeconomy represents a major economic opportunity for the UK and particularly for the North of England, which has world-class bioeconomy assets.  The THYME Project will establish a new and highly innovative collaboration between the universities of York, Hull and Teesside that will become an exemplar for good practice in Knowledge Exchange between HEIs and industry, attracting trade and inward investment into sustainable bio-based industries and our HEIs.  

    The post will encompass a circular economy focus and will interact with the three fields of activity covered by the project, which are 1) Transforming bio-residues into materials for re-use; 2) Increasing the productivity of existing bioeconomy activities in the region; 3) repurposing disused land for bioeconomy activity.  These types of activity are closely related to the circular economy, which aims to maximise value extracted from all types of resources, including biological, whilst minimising waste.

    The post will be based in the Energy and Environment Institute but will involve collaboration with colleagues from across the university and the other partner universities.  In addition, there will be opportunities to proactively engage with other circular economy related research.  For instance, Geography is leading an EU-funded international PhD-training network relating to the circular economy, and is co-leading the university’s contribution to an EPSRC-funded project evolving a Circular Plastics Economy, which also has a bioeconomic component.   Geography and Environmental studies research was ranked 3rd in the UK for its impact in Research Excellence Framework 2014.

  • PDRA (Knowledge Exchange and Innovation) in Geospatial Analytics of the Bioeconomy

    Code: (AE0158)

    (Knowledge Exchange and Innovation)

    The University of Hull (UoH) is part of a project funded by Research England to promote the development of a bioeconomy across Yorkshire, the Humber region and the Tees Valley.   The bioeconomy uses biological resources for economic purposes including food, energy generation and also as components in manufacturing complex materials.  The fast-growing bioeconomy represents a major economic opportunity for the UK and particularly for the North of England, which has world-class bioeconomy assets.  The THYME Project will establish a new and highly innovative collaboration between the universities of York, Hull and Teesside that will become an exemplar for good practice in Knowledge Exchange between HEIs and industry, attracting trade and inward investment into sustainable bio-based industries and our HEIs.   The three fields of activity covered by the project are 1) Transforming bio-residues into materials for re-use; 2) Increasing the productivity of existing bioeconomy activities in the region; 3) repurposing disused land for bioeconomy activity.  These types of activity are closely related to the circular economy, which aims to maximise value extracted from all types of resources, including biological, whilst minimising waste.

    The post-holder will be primarily involved in the development of a digital geographical system capable of capturing, analysing and presenting the engagement activities and seeking to understand the policy, social and economic foundations of the regional bioeconomy and developing publications for the dissemination of findings for both academic and non-academic audiences.  They will need to work closely with the other PDRAs involved in the project and with colleagues in chemical engineering and human and physical geography to collate spatial datasets and encapsulate understanding on stakeholder needs and behaviour to be used in the development of the geographical mapping, analytical, modelling systems. They will need to undertake data analytics and data mining activities with the aim of developing web-based / policy-friendly computational tools and modelling and ideally generating web-based databases.

    The post will be based in the Energy and Environment Institute but will involve collaboration with colleagues from across the university and the other partner universities.   In addition, there will be opportunities to proactively engage with other circular economy related research.  For instance, Geography is leading an EU-funded international PhD-training network relating to the circular economy, and is co-leading the university’s contribution to an EPSRC-funded project evolving a Circular Plastics Economy, which also has a bioeconomic component.  Geography and Environmental studies research was ranked 3rd in the UK for its impact in Research Excellence Framework 2014.

  • Post Doctoral Research Fellow in Reproductive Biology

    Code: (HY0276)

    We wish to recruit a talented postdoctoral research fellow to undertake an ambitious research project investigating how maternal bodyweight affects early embryo development processes in ways that can influence lifelong health.  The project will also explore the possibility of restoring metabolic disruption in embryos originating from women whom are overweight and obese.

    Significant research has established that events occurring around the time of conception can induce biochemical, metabolic and genomic responses in the early embryo.  These changes appear to persist throughout pregnancy and offer a possible mechanism explaining why prenatal exposure may influence postnatal health. The Hull York Medical School, University of Hull, was recently awarded a prestigious grant to describe in unparalleled detail the impact of being overweight or obese on human embryo development, and then to explore strategies to correct the predicted responses.  This exciting project is technically challenging and offers an opportunity to provide insight into the processes of early development. Working closely with colleagues at the University of Manchester and in a local clinical IVF facility, the successful applicant will use a range of experimental methods to examine single cell gene expression and metabolic biochemistry of human embryos that are no longer required for clinical use.

    We encourage you to apply if you have experience of working with mammalian preimplantation embryos, ideally human, and have an interest in how energy metabolism drives key molecular processes in the first stages of embryo development.  Experience of working within HFEA regulatory frameworks would be a distinct advantage.

    To discuss this role informally, please contact Dr Roger Sturmey, T 01482 466422, E roger.sturmey@hyms.ac.uk

    Interviews are anticipated to be held week commencing 10 June 2019 with an anticipated start date as soon as possible thereafter.
