PhD and postdoc opportunities in Statistical Inference for Computational and Systems Biology
University of Manchester, UK.

Applicants are sought for two PhD projects and one postdoc position in the area of Statistical Inference for Computational and Systems Biology. Professor Magnus Rattray is establishing a new Computational and Systems Biology research group in the University of Manchester's Faculty of Life Sciences. Details of recent research are available at his current Sheffield website: http://staffwww.dcs.shef.ac.uk/people/M.Rattray. These positions are available from September 2012 along with a further postdoc position tba.
