Successful candidates will develop novel systems biology tools and data-driven algorithms for speeding rational metabolic engineering of yeast, and apply these to design yeast cell factories for production of bulk and fine chemicals in biorefineries.
The candidates are expected to employ systems biology approaches to metabolic engineering, tapping into the latest -omic technologies and metabolic modelling.
The candidates will publish their research results in international peer-reviewed journals and present at international conferences and seminars. Patenting activities can also expected.
Candidates must have MSc degree (or equivalent degree that enables access to PhD) in computer science, biology, engineering, bioinformatics, systems biology, applied mathematics, physics or a related discipline with a strong background in mathematical modeling/scientific computing and/or biology/cell metabolism.
The ESRs will be hired for 36 months each and will be expected to pursue a PhD (at University of Minho). Salary will be excellent according to EU regulations (Marie Curie ITN Early Stage Researcher conditions).
The ESRs will be involved in a Marie-Curie network with excellent opportunities for scientific and personal development, including funding for short stays at top-class research groups and regular training events and meetings across Europe. The selected candidates will be employed by the company and will be part of an interdisciplinary team of experts in computer science, artificial intelligence, bioinformatics, systems biology and bioprocess engineering. Other benefits also include participation in internal talks, company retreats among other perks.
Please submit your online application no later than 31 October 2016.
