Applications are invited for a Temporary post of a UCD Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 within UCD School of Biology and Environmental Science

Anthropogenic climate change is manifested through waves of heat stress. Extensive research effort has been dedicated to understanding how species have historically coped with heat stress and the extent of their present buffer capacity, but there remain crucial gaps in our understanding of how genomes respond to heat stress or adapt to climate. Genes are typically regarded as independent units, which means that the properties emerging from their organization into functional networks are understudied.

As part of the "MolStressH2O project funded by the European Research Council for five years, you will undertake both fundamental and applied research by (i) investigating the basis of network behaviour under heat stress through simulations and (ii) investigate the role of functional genomic network constraint in heat stress response and -adaptation through the analysis of -omics data.

This is a research focused role, where you will conduct a specified programme of research supported by research training and development under the supervision and direction of a Principal Investigator. The primary purpose of the role is to further develop your research skills and competences, including the processes of publication in peer-reviewed academic publications, the development of funding proposals, the mentorship of graduate students along with the opportunity to develop your skills in research-led teaching.

Fixed Salary: 41,209 per annum

Closing date: 17:00hrs (local Irish time) on 05th January 2023
