The Fellowship will involve developing statistical approaches for integrative theoretical and experimental analytical science, with application to bacterial cell division and quality by design methodologies. Sophisticated statistical analyses (e.g. McMC, Bayesian inference and artificial neural networks) applied to complex datasets will enable complementary data from different analytical techniques (e.g. circular dichroism (CD), NIR spectroscopy and MCD) to be combined to give a more complete view of a product. The central aim of the project will be to develop an approach which naturally quantifies uncertainty in parameter estimation, makes full use of all available information and can be rapidly applied to experimental data as it emerges.
The work will be carried out as part of a European Marie Curie Initial Training Network that involves regular meetings and timely delivery of results. The student will visit and collaborate with both an academic and an industrial partner by means of 3-month visiting researcher placements, and will participate in planned training events and workshops covering topics such as team working and leadership, business, intellectual property, industrial biotechnology, and science communication.
The University of Warwick is committed to the principles of the Athena Scientific Womenâs Academic Network and the HR Research in Excellence agenda.
