    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Mathematical Modeller – Grade 7 – Liverpool, UK</p>
    Application deadline 24th November 2021.

    Informal enquiries,

    Full job description & link to application process can be found here.

    We are seeking an enthusiastic and highly skilled mathematical modeller to join a new
    Leverhulme Trust funded project working with an interdisciplinary team of scientists to
    develop a modelling framework to solve reaction-diffusion models, within 3D cell
    arrangements, extracted from 3D imaging data. This is an exciting opportunity for candidates
    interested in mathematical biology and the use of mathematics to generate hypotheses. The
    biological system under investigation will be the control of Arabidopsis root hair patterning.
    You will be based in the University of Liverpool working with Dr. Natasha Savage and
    collaborating with Dr Anthony Bishop and his team, in the University of Nottingham. You
    should have a PhD in Applied Mathematics (or other relevant discipline) or be suitably trained
    and qualified in Applied Mathematics (or other relevant discipline). The post is available until
    November 2024 in the first instance with the possibility of a further extension.

    The Role
    You will oversee all theoretical work within the project under the direct supervision of Dr
    Natasha Savage. You will be encouraged and given time to undertake further training in
    mathematics and computation, and to develop a strong familiarity with and knowledge of
    biological literature appropriate to the project. As theoretical lead you will be expected to
    foster and maintain a close collaborative relationship with the project’s plant science
    colleagues, based in Nottingham, and to present and disseminate project results at meetings,
    conferences and outreach events, as well as contributing to and writing scientific publications.
    You will also be responsible for sharing annotated code plus the theoretical data in file
    exchanges and data repositories during the publication process.
    <p style=”text-align: left;”>The Team
    With an interdisciplinary approach the successful candidate will be based in Liverpool working
    alongside Dr Natasha Savage, as well as collaborating with Dr Anthony Bishopp and his group
    in Nottingham. The two teams will work closely to address questions posed in the project
