Research Associate in the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College open

Applications are invited for the post of Research Associate in the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College working under the supervision of Dr Reiko Tanaka.

This post is for a project aimed at understanding regulatory mechanisms leading to skin inflammation. We will employ a diverse range of theoretical/engineering methodologies to model and elucidate the regulatory mechanisms for skin barrier homeostasis and inflammatory signalling. The project will include collaboration with experimentalists and clinicians. The main responsibilities of this post will include development of mathematical models for skin barrier homeostasis and inflammation, proposition of the experiments, coordination, integration and analysis of experimental data, and the statistical analysis and reformulations of these models in light of the collected data. More information on research activities in Dr Tanaka's group is found in http://www.bg.ic.ac.uk/research/r.tanaka.

Applicants should hold a PhD or equivalent in a relevant area (Computational Biology, Applied Mathematics, or closely aligned disciplines) to undertake this project. You should also have experience in modelling and analysis of biological systems, expertise in modelling with differential equations and numerical methods, and strong interest in biology. We look for highly motivated applicants with excellent interpersonal, written and oral communication skills and enthusiasm for exposure to a diversity of scientific projects.

Interested candidates should send CV and the research statement directly to Dr Reiko Tanaka (r.tanaka @ imperial.ac.uk). Applications will be assessed on the rolling basis, until the post is filled.
