Postdoctoral Position in Complex Biological Networks open

The group of Professor Adilson E. Motter at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Northwestern University, has an opening for a postdoctoral position in the area of systems biology. The research will focus on the predictive modeling of dynamical processes in intracellular networks, with emphasis on the analysis of network perturbations and its applications to the study of cancer. The ideal candidate will have experience in the areas of systems biology, computer simulations, and complex networks. Previous experience with cancer biology, nonlinear dynamics, and/or data analysis would be a plus.  Competitive candidates will also have good writing skills and a demonstrated ability to conduct independent high-impact research. This project will interact synergistically with ongoing projects on epigenetics and gene regulation mechanisms relevant to cancer development at the Northwestern University's Physical Sciences-Oncology Center.

The appointment is available immediately. Salary is competitive, depending on qualifications and experience. To apply, please e-mail curriculum vitae along with a brief statement of how your research interests are related to this position to Adilson E. Motter at motter@northwestern.edu, and arrange to have two letters of recommendation e-mailed to the same address. Applications received before October 15, 2010 will receive full consideration.
