Post-Doc and PhD positions: Computational Systems Biology, ETH Zurich open

Post-Doc and PhD positions: Computational Systems Biology, ETH ZurichApplications are invited for a PhD studentship and a Post-Doc position, within the Computational Biology Group at the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering of ETH Zurich.
 
The group focuses on the development of detailed, predictive models for cellular signaling networks with a view to develop a comprehensive understanding of the dynamics and evolution of cellular signaling. All projects are carried out in close collaboration with experimental groups so that quantitative data is available and model predictions can be tested in experiments.
 
Applicants should have a strong background in mathematical and computational modeling, and demonstrated experience in nonlinear dynamics and numerical calculations. PhD candidates should hold or expect to obtain a degree in a numerate discipline (e.g. mathematics, computational science, computational biology, physics, biotechnology, chemical or bio- engineering, or related areas). Candidates are expected to engage in interdisciplinary research and to foster in-house collaborations with biologists and bioengineers.

The Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering of ETH Zurich is an integral part of SystemX.ch, the Swiss initiative in Systems Biology. It is located in Basel, a European hotspot for biomedical research, in close proximity of the Biozentrum of the University of Basel, the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research, and the pharmaceutical and biotech industry. ETH Zurich is a major research university, offering an excellent environment for innovative and collaborative research across disciplines.
