The Molecular Systems Biology Group (http://cnc.cj.uc.pt/~salvador/) at the Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology – University of Coimbra (Portugal), is seeking highly motivated candidates for a post‐graduate fellowship under the project FCOMP‐01‐0124‐FEDER‐020978 (FCT ref.: PTDC/QUI‐BIQ/119657/2010) “Finding the naturally evolved design principles of prevalent metabolic circuits“. Applicants of any nationality must have an M. Sc. degree in Biochemistry, Bioinformatics, Biological Engineering, Biomedical Engineering or similar by the application deadline, and a documented strong mathematical and computational background. Previous experience in mathematical modeling of biochemical processes is a strong preferential condition.
The object of activity will be the characterization of principles of quantitative design of metabolic network motifs through mathematical modeling, systems analysis and analysis of available experimental data.
The fellowship will have the duration of 12 months and start October 2013 (negotiable date). Eventual renewal based on merit and availability of funds. The monthly salary (tax free) will be €980.
Applications can be submitted by email to armindo.salvador en gmail.com no later than September 5, 2013. They must indicate reference BI-M3/PTDC/QUI‐BIQ/119657/2010 and include all the following documents: motivation letter, curriculum vitae, publications list, copy of M. Sc. diploma/certificate, and contact information (email and phone) of at least two references.
