January 5, 2011 § Leave a comment

The Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin DFG Research Training Group “Computational Systems Biology” has openings for Ph.D. students and post-docs.

Biology has developed into a quantitative, information-driven science. We are seeking fellows in the new Research Training Group Computational Systems Biology (CSB) which focuses on the system-level understanding of biological data using computational methods. CSB is embedded in the thriving Berlin life-science environment and involves high-ranking research institutions such as Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Freie Universität Berlin, Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics and Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine Berlin-Buch.

We offer 12 PhD fellowships and 1 postdoctoral position (TV/L E13) in the following areas:

(a) Structural investigation of protein-protein and protein-RNA interactions and their role in molecular networks of the living cell
(b) Detailed models of cellular processes on different levels
(c) Reverse engineering for prediction of genetic networks from new types of data and
(d) Spatio-temporal organization of networks.

We are looking for highly-motivated students with a strong interest in systems biology and mathematical modelling. Successful applicants must hold the equivalent of a master’s level degree in life sciences, mathematics, physics or computer sciences. The PhD fellowship comprises a monthly stipend which is initially granted for 2 years and which can be extended for another 12 months. We offer an excellent training program in computational systems biology, supervision by at least two experienced scientists, and multifarious opportunities for developing local and international collaboration.

Applications (one PDF-file containing cover letter, CV, master/diploma certificate, 1-page project description, and names and addresses of 2 referees) should be sent preferably via email until January 31, 2011.
