The research team for the project will consist of the PI (Christine Caldwell), two postdoctoral researchers and four PhD students. The current advert is for the two research assistant positions, with the four (4-year) studentships to be advertised later in the project.
The posts are offered as fixed term, full-time appointments for 30 months to start 1 September 2015. After 30 months there will be the potential to extend to five years.
