We invite applications for a Senior Post-Doctoral Research Associate position to join the Next Generation Converged Digital infrastructure (NG-CDI) programme. NG-CDI is an exciting, cross-disciplinary research project that will forge the foundational research needed to underpin the next generation converged digital infrastructure for the UK.  This £5M programme is jointly funded by BT and the EPSRC.

You will join two highly supportive research communities: first and foremost you will become a member of the vibrant NG-CDI community, with ready access to inspiring applications that motivate novel ideas and approaches. In addition, the successful candidate will also become part of a growing community of post-doctoral researchers based at Lancaster, working on next generation statistical methods for streaming data.

Interested candidates are strongly encouraged to contact Professor Idris Eckley ( to discuss the programme in greater detail.

You will join us on an indefinite contract however, the role remains contingent on external funding which, at this time is due to end on 31 October 2022.
