Postdoctoral position in Systems Biology of aging and rejuvenation open

Department of Mathematical Sciences, University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg, Sweden 

Job assignments:
We are now seeking a driven, creative and highly motivated postdoctoral candidate that will contribute to on-going efforts in the lab to develop a novel modeling framework to elucidate the nature of aggregate inheritance on the single cell and whole population level and its role in rejuvenating process. The position is interdisciplinary and combines mathematics and computer science with application in biology and medicine. You will work in a highly collaborative and international research environment and are expected to develop independent ideas, and to communicate research results in oral and written form. 

The position requires outstanding quantitative and analytical skills. We are looking for candidates with PhD-level expertise in computational/systems biology, statistics, mathematics, physics or related fields, who are looking to make an impact in biomedical research. Curiosity to work in interdisciplinary projects and continuously expand your expertise is expected. Experience in large-scale data analysis will be useful, and proficiency in computer programming (e.g. R/Mathematica/Matlab/Perl/Python) is required. An appropriate record of productivity (evidenced e.g. by academic papers or scientific software) is expected. The position requires the ability to independently take responsibility over a scientific project, strong teamwork and communication skills, reliability, attention to detail and effective time management. 
Full time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of two years.
