Research Officer

Are you in the final year of your PhD at the University of Leeds and do you have an interest in commercially focused research?  Can you undertake collaborative simulation projects with external organisations?

You will undertake applied research work on behalf of Procter and Gamble (P&G). This will involve undertaking project work on the optimization of genetic algorithms used in combination with some machine learning models in a Python environment.

This will be an hourly paid role (up to 20 hours per week) that would be ideal for a student in the writing up year of their PhD studies. It will provide excellent employment experience, working closely with a commercial customer, and building upon the research skills that will have been developed throughout the prior period of research study. We ask applicants to be able to commit for a minimum of six months to working in this role.

Applications and a CV to be sent to Mr Peter Bollada, Simulation Centre Manager, email complete an application form (attached). There is no need for you to replicate the information provided on your CV on this application form (e.g. qualifications and work history).
