RA position in Sheffield: probabilistic modelling in Systems Biology

Posted by Rebecca Martin on Fri, 13/03/2009 - 01:00

A Post Doctoral Research Associate position is available in the Department of Chemical and Process Engineering for a computational scientist working on probabilistic modelling for Systems Biology. The successful candidate will join the Institute of Chemical Engineering at the Life Sciences Interface (ChELSI) in the Department of Chemical and Process Engineering. Established in 2006 following a £4.4M award from
the EPSRC, the institute is at the forefront of the development and application of systems approaches to bio-engineering. Following the appointment of two lecturers in theoretical systems biology, the institute is now seeking to further expand its modelling base. The PDRA will work with Dr Guido Sanguinetti on probabilistic modelling of high-throughput experimental data, using and developing techniques from statistical machine learning to address new problems in systems biology.
The successful applicant will have, or be in the process of obtaining, a PhD (or have equivalent experience) in a quantitative discipline (maths, physics, engineering, computer science), and will be working in a highly interdisciplinary environment. Some background in statistical data modelling and computational biology would be desirable, but motivated applicants from other numerate backgrounds are also welcome.

Closing date is April 9th.
