    The Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology – Hans Knöll Institute (Leibniz-HKI, www. leibniz-hki.de) investigates human- pathogenic germs and identifies targets for the development of medical drugs. Talented and highly qualified candidates are invited to apply for positions in the research group Applied Systems Biology of Prof. Dr. Marc Thilo Figge as

    Doctoral Researcher (f/div/m) in Computational Biology

    for three years initially with the prospect of prolongation.

    Research Areas: Mathematical Modeling, State-based and Agent-based Modeling, Game Theory, etc.

    In the research group Applied Systems Biology a position for a doctoral researcher becomes available. The position is associated with aspects of the Image-based Systems Biology approach. This modern computational approach comprises the automated analysis of microscopy and/or spectroscopy data based on state-of-the-art methods from machine learning as well as the computer simulation of mathematical models using advanced modeling approaches. We are seeking highly motivated candidates that are interested to work on mathematical modeling and computer simulations in experiment-driven interdisciplinary studies.

    Candidate's profile:

    • Master degree (or equivalent) in physics, computer science, bioinformatics or a related discipline

    • Strong interest in biological systems and an educational background in biology is preferred

    • Experience in mathematical modeling and computer simulations is beneficial

    • Very good programming skills in Python and/or C/C++

    • Ability to perform team-oriented as well as independent work

    • Good communication skills in English are a must

    We offer:

    The successful candidate will be hosted in the research group Applied Systems Biology of Prof. Dr. Marc Thilo Figge. The Leibniz-HKI is embedded in the outstanding scientific environment of the Beutenberg Campus providing state- of-the-art research facilities and a highly integrative network of life science groups. We offer a multifaceted scientific project with excellent technical facilities, a place in a dynamic, committed team, as well as strong scientific collaborations. The PhD candidate will participate in the structured program of the International Leibniz Research School and become an associated member of the Jena School of Microbial Communication.

    Salary is paid according to German TV-L (salary agreement for public service employees). As an equal opportunity employer, the Leibniz-HKI is committed to increasing the percentage of female scientists and therefore especially encourages them to apply.
