Job category/type Research
We are recruiting for a research fellow who will be an active member of the research team; planning and delivering the main objectives of a specific research project so the overall research aims are fulfilled. The successful Research Fellow will undertake research under supervision of the principal investigator to aid the design and development of working models, statistical, mathematical, or simulation, of a food system. Although the eventual developed model will be primarily an IT based solution, the work will be multi-disciplinary including but not limited to: food systems, food science, economics, environment, supply chain, predictive analytics and risk analysis. While the post-holder will not be expected to have expertise in all areas, they will be expected to be comfortable discussing and developing the model across disciplines. Responsibilities will include modelling, developing and testing algorithms, machine learning, statistical analyses, critical evaluations, and interpretations using methodologies and other appropriate techniques.
