Research fellowship opportunities in collaboration with industry

TRAIN@Ed research fellowship for candidates with a background in experimental particle physics and machine learning.

The TRAIN@Ed research fellowship programme, an ambitious scheme with the intention of bringing international researchers to the UK, is now open to applications. This is part of a €7.1 million Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions COFUND grant awarded to the University of Edinburgh.

The School of Physics and Astronomy, in collaboration with industrial partner Tindeco Financial Services, is looking for applicants with a background in experimental particle physics and machine learning, and a strong interest in financial applications (in particular: portfolio construction, risk management and systematic investment management). Candidates must submit a proposal outlining their vision on the collaborative research to be conducted during the three-year fellowship.

Eligible candidates will have finished their PhD ideally around two years previous to and no more than ten years beyond their application. They will not have lived and worked in the UK for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the submission deadline.

Full details of the scheme and opportunities are found on the TRAIN@Ed site.

Interested candidates should get in touch with Christos.Leonidopoulos [at] (Christos Leonidopoulos.)

The deadline for expression of interest is 15 October 2018.
