Post-doc position in Systems Biology Germany

Post-doc position in Systems Biology
Starting date: between October 1, 2008 and January 1, 2009
Duration: 2 years
Location : Université Libre de Bruxelles, Genomic and Structural BioInformatics
Unit, avenue Roosevelt, 50, CP 165/61, B-1050 Brussels, Belgium

Subject: Dynamical modeling of gene regulation networks

The focus will be on the mathematical modeling of the time evolution of gene
expression levels across the cell cycles or across the development stages of the
host organisms, on the basis of available experimental data such as DNA
microarray time series. Particular attention will be paid to the analysis of network
modifications due to illnesses (e.g. cancer) or external stimuli.
This project is within the framework of Modeling, optimization and control of
biochemical processes, a topic included in the Belgian Interuniversity Attraction
Pole DYSCO (Dynamical Systems, Control and Optimization).
The candidate should have a PhD in physics, mathematics, bioengineering,
chemistry, bioinformatics or applied mathematics engineering, with a strong
expertise in dynamical modeling and/or systems biology. She/he should be
interested in a transdisciplinary approach of both mathematical analysis and
biological applications.

Application should include a cover letter and curriculum vitae, and should be sent
before September 1, 2008 to:
Prof. Marianne Rooman
