(01) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:– Postdoctoral Research Associate in RNA Bioinformatics

The Tollervey lab seeks to understand the nuclear pathways that synthesize and process newly transcribed RNAs, the assembly of RNA-protein complexes and the surveillance activities that monitor their fidelity. To achieve these goals, we have developed a range of high-throughput techniques for mapping RNA-protein, RNA-RNA and RNA-DNA interactions. 

In particular, we are analyzing the role of RNA-DNA hybrids (R-loops) in gene expression and DNA replication, and the roles of RNase H and RNA surveillance pathways in their clearance. The project will involve the development and application of techniques to analyze high-throughput sequence data and, potentially, proteomic data. This position is funded by the Leverhulme Trust and is available for 2 years. 

Deadline :6 August 2024.

(15) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title:– Postdoctoral Research Associate

A postdoctoral research position is available in the lab of Dr Susan Johnston (Institute of Ecology & Evolution) on evolutionary genomics of recombination rate variation in wild birds and mammals. We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated postdoc to work with genomic data to characterise variation in population- and individual-level recombination landscapes wild long-term wild studies.

The project is part of a Royal Society-funded project on genetic basis and evolution of recombination variation. Meiotic recombination (i.e. chromosomal “crossovers”) is beneficial as it promotes proper chromosome segregation and creates new combinations of alleles upon which selection can act. However, it has the cost of increasing mutations and can break up previously beneficial allele combinations. Despite these trade-offs, relatively little is known about how and why the rate of recombination varies, particularly between the sexes (known as heterochiasmy) or between individuals, populations and species. Our group aims to better understand the causes and consequences of recombination rate variation in wild and domesticated populations.

This project will use genomic data in long-term pedigreed mammal and bird studies to investigate the causes, consequences, and correlates on variation in recombination landscapes, with a specific focus on sex differences. The PDRA will take advantage of an established analytical pipelines for estimating crossover positions within pedigrees and will investigate cross-sex variation in recombination landscapes. In addition, the PDRA will use whole-genome sequence data from unrelated individuals to investigate fine-scale recombination landscapes at the population level. The project includes funds for genotyping/sequencing, training, computing and attending international conferences. There is scope to tailor the project to the skills and interests of the PDRA, and to develop independent lines of research.

Applicants should have a strong background in genetics and a PhD in a relevant subject area (population and/or quantitative genetics, evolutionary biology, and/or working with recombination data). Experience working with genomic data and bioinformatics skills are essential, as is a strong track record of independent and creative thinking.

Postdoc  summary/title:–  Research Associate

The School of Informatics is one of the largest research centres in Computer Science in Europe, and it has been ranked #1 in the UK in terms of research power by a large margin. Informatics, Edinburgh is world renowned in Machine Learning and Reinforcement Learning, publishing in all the top venues in these fields. We are offering an exciting opportunity to work in an interdisciplinary, collaborative, friendly, and supportive environment, integrating different sub-fields of within Artificial Intelligence. 

Reinforcement learning (RL) algorithms aim to train a decision policy for an agent to achieve a specified task in an environment. The agent’s policy is trained by choosing actions which maximise the cumulative rewards received by the agent from its environment. With the introduction of deep learning into RL, “deep RL” algorithms have achieved unprecedented scalability, enabling the solution of complex decision tasks, such as autonomous driving [1] and beating human champions in games such as Go [2]. However, a current limitation of deep RL is that the training process typically requires orders of many millions of environment interactions in the precise environment (i.e. training data), which is infeasible in real-world applications where obtaining samples poses a significant bottleneck. Good transferability between different related environments is also still not generally achievable. Thus, developing approaches to improve the sample efficiency of deep RL algorithms, i.e. learning good policies with minimal data or from information learnt elsewhere, is a high-priority research topic.

The School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh invites applications for a Post-Doctoral Research Associate in Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning to work with Dr Pasquale Minervini in the Edinburgh NLP Group. The project is funded by Huawei via the Huawei-Edinburgh Joint Lab initiative.

The researcher will work on projects involving the design and application of improving the robustness and trustworthiness of Large Language Models when solving complex reasoning tasks, while improving their explainability and generalisation properties. They will be part of the Edinburgh NLP Group, a world-leading research group in Natural Language Processing.

The School of Informatics is one of the largest research centres in Computer Science in Europe and is ranked #1 in the UK in terms of research power by a large margin. The Edinburgh NLP Group is consistently ranked among the world’s leading research groups in Natural Language Processing. We offer an exciting opportunity to work in an interdisciplinary, collaborative, friendly, and supportive environment that integrates various fields of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence.

Large Language Models (LLMs) have significantly advanced NLP by providing more accurate solutions for a wide variety of problems, ranging from (open domain) question answering to complex reasoning tasks. Still, LLMs tend to produce hallucinations — sentences that appear fluent but are semantically nonsensical, often containing factual inaccuracies — with potentially catastrophic implications. This project aims to explore, develop and benchmark strategies for improving the factuality and reliability of LLMs when answering complex questions and solving complex tasks – for example, via Chain-of-Thought reasoning.

Founded in 1582 and officially opened in 1583, the university is one of Scotland’s four ancient universities and the sixth-oldest university in the English-speaking world. The university has five main campuses in the city of Edinburgh, which include many buildings of historical and architectural significance such as those in Old Town. The university played an important role in Edinburgh becoming a chief intellectual centre during the Scottish Enlightenment, contributing to the city being nicknamed the “Athens of the North”.

The university is a member of a number of prestigious academic organisations, including the Russell Group, the Coimbra Group, the Universitas 21, the Una Europa, and the League of European Research Universities, a consortium of 23 leading research universities in Europe. It has the third largest endowment of any university in the United Kingdom, after the universities of Cambridge and Oxford. In 2019-20, the university has a consolidated annual income of £1,125.3 million, of which £296.1 million was from research grants and contracts.
