    for a postdoc to work with me on image analysis for AgriScience to work within the University of Manchester e-Agri group - I would like to find someone who can bring knowledge and contacts in the area of earth observation who would benefit from sitting with astronomers in my group who are experts at analysing billions of pixels of image data from multiple wavebands, and work with others in the University of Manchester on bringing that data together with ground truth from handheld devices. Please get in touch if you are interested.

    We recently heard from STFC that a team of us from STFC research and N8 Agrifood have been awarded funding to run the STFC Food Network+. We are very excited to have resources available to bring food researchers together with STFC researchers to solve food challenges using expertise from STFC areas. This will launch in January.

    Currently the biggest puzzle in cosmology is the nature of the dark energy which seems cause the mysterious accelerated expansion of the Universe. Weak gravitational lensing can tell us about the dark energy because it shows us the dark matter distribution. The dark matter clumps less as time passes if there is more dark energy, since the dark energy is stretching the universe out and counteracting the attraction by gravity.
    Compared to other cosmological probes, gravitational lensing has the greatest potential for telling us more about the dark energy. However there are a number of areas which require more work so that the full potential can be reached, and I am concentrating on the following:
