Research Fellow in Systems Biology - Analysis of Biochemical Networks closed

Research Fellow in Systems Biology - Analysis of Biochemical Networks using Robust Control Theory

The Research Fellow will join the University of Leicester Systems Biology Lab (www.SBLab.org), based in the internationally leading Control and Instrumentation Research Group, to work on this BBSRC funded project.
The research is focussed on the development and application of techniques for analysing biomolecular network models, with particular application to models of cyclic-AMP oscillations in aggregating Dictyostelium cells, and the genetic circuits underlying control of tryptophan production in E.coli. As well as developing novel analytical techniques in collaboration with Dr. Declan Bates and Prof. Ian Postlethwaite, the Research Fellow will have the opportunity to test these methods via interaction with experimentalists in the laboratory of Prof. Pat Heslop-Harrison at Leicester (www.molcyt.com). This is an exciting opportunity for a young researcher to join a genuinely multidisciplinary team of researchers working at the Life Sciences Interface. Applications are welcome from candidates holding (or about to complete) a PhD in Control or Systems Engineering, Physics or Mathematics.

Salary: £27,465 to £31,840 pa, available from October 2007 for 24 months. Downloadable application forms and further particulars are available from www.le.ac.uk/personnel/jobs or from Personnel Services, tel: 0116 252 2758, fax: 0116 252 5140, email: recruitment3 @ le.ac.uk .
Please note that CVs will only be accepted in support of a fully completed application form. Closing date: 30th September 2007. Informal enquiries are welcome to Dr. Declan Bates (dgb3 @ le.ac.uk).
