Project Description of Computational Systems Biology
The ESR Positions in Computational Systems Biology has been classified as ESR9 and ESR10.
Fellow ESR9 will focus on mathematical model selection and optimal experimental design in systems biology. The main objective will be to use optimal experimental design methods to devise the necessary dynamic experiments for E. coli homeostasis modelling. Candidates should have a strong background in mathematical modelling, statistics and nonlinear analysis. Fellow ESR10 will focus on advanced model identification and parameter estimation in systems biology. The main objective will be to devise new model calibration methods and to apply them to compute the parameters of E. coli homeostasis dynamic models from experimental (input-output) data. Candidates should have a strong background in mathematical modelling, statistics and, ideally,
software development and high performance scientific computing.
Conditions of employment under EU FP7 Marie Curie
Early Stage Researcher means less than 4 years of experience, e.g. PhD student.
These ESRs will be hired for 36 months each and will be expected to pursue a PhD. Candidates must be in possession of a relevant Masters degree (or very close to obtaining it) at the time of appointment. The position requires a good knowledge of English language (Spanish is not
mandatory) and the interest to work in the interdisciplinary field of systems biology. Salary will be excellent, according to EU regulations (Marie Curie ITN Early Stage Researcher). The network will provide an excellent opportunity for scientific and personal development, with regular training events and meetings across Europe.
Geographic mobility and eligibility requirements for Early Stage Researchers apply. The candidates:
§ should not have a PhD
§ should have less than 4 years of research experience
§ must not have resided or carried out their
main activity in the country of the host institution (Spain) for more
than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment
Application Procedure for the Early Stage
Researcher Position in Spain
Applicants should submit by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. es the following
§ detailed cover letter outlining their research agenda
§ curriculum vitae
§ scanned copies of degree certificates
§ the names and email addresses of two confidential references
Primary supervisor: Julio R. Banga, IIM-CSIC, Vigo(Spain)
