You will be required to carry out research on the state-of-the-art resistive-switching memory devices (RRAM), an exciting category of nanoscale devices in which the resistance can be varied and memorized in thin semiconductor or metal oxide dielectric materials. This technology is expected to become one of the major driving forces to support the ICT industry for the next 20 years through a range of disruptive inventions in digital VLSI, memory, high performance computing, bio-inspire machine learning, and reconfigurable computing. It will not only drastically enhance the performance of non-volatile memories, but will also revolutionize computer architecture with system-on-chip memory embedded within the CPU, and with the “Storage Class Memory (SCM)” that augments DRAM, Flash memory and HDD all together for its fast speed (DRAM), non-volatile memory (Flash) and high capacity (HDD). This offers a host of new opportunities to system designers, opening up the possibilities for ultra-fast computing with truly persistent data, providing a significant increase in information throughput beyond the traditional benefits of CMOS scaling. The work will be carried out in collaboration with world-leading research institute, IMEC, and leading companies such as Intel, Samsung, Toshiba and Sandisk, etc. This is a part of joint project with the University of Cambridge and the University of Liverpool. The associate may work at IMEC during the project period together with the scientists from the above mentioned organisations, which provides excellent opportunities for career development.

AfRIS Science Communicator (0.2fte) - 2 years fixed term

AfRIS Science Communicator (0.2fte) – 2 years fixed term

£26,052 - £31,076 pro rata per annum

The National Schools’ Observatory (NSO) is looking to recruit an enthusiastic science communicator to join our STFC-funded Astronomy for Remote and Island Schools (AfRIS) project, which begins on the 1st September 2017. The part-time role will act as the second member of a small, mobile science-outreach team, which will create, organise and deliver astronomy-related workshops & activities to schools and communities in some of the UK’s more remote and island locations. During the 30-month lifetime of the project, the AfRIS team will undertake around 40 visits, and will engage with at least 80 schools, 4000 students and 1000 members of the remote communities that we visit. It’s anticipated that the outreach team will conduct 2-3 day visits every fortnight during term-time, and will travel to, and stay, in many remote locations across the length and breadth of the British Isles, from the Channel Islands right up to the Shetlands.

Applicants must have a science-related background, be friendly, enthusiastic and adaptable, and be able to enthuse school children about physics, astronomy and STEM subjects in general. The science communicator role will involve the creation and management of workshop content, the transportation and maintenance of demonstration equipment, assisting with the promotion, evaluation and dissemination of project activities, and of course, delivering engaging astronomy-related workshops and activities within remote/island schools and communities. As a core member of the AfRIS team, the opportunity to travel and explore the UK will be enormous, and as such, those interested in the science communicator role would have to possess a personable and flexible outlook, and be comfortable with travelling by car, ferry, plane, train, tractor or even by foot if needs be. Whilst the role sets out at 0.2 FTE, if we can prove the value of the AfRIS project to the communities we visit, then there could be many opportunities for increasing the scope of the work we do and/or extending our activities beyond the STFC-funded lifetime of the project.
