|Postdoc in Systems Biology
|Date Posted||Thursday, 11 October 2012|
|Location||University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK|
University of Cambridge, Dept. of Biochemistry
Cambridge, CB2 1GA
|Job Description||Metabolic networks are very stable and can react dynamically to changes in environmental conditions and stress situations. This stability decreases during ageing, and is a main issue in the development of (cancer) drugs targeting metabolic reactions, as the network balances their effect.
This position is for an active Systems Biologist to use large-scale genomic and metabolomic data generated in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae to test different hypotheses as to how the stability of metabolic networks is maintained.
The role holder will work closely with the labs of Markus Ralser and Steve Oliver at the Cambridge Systems Biology Centre and Dept. of Biochemistry. As part of a highly motivated, interdisciplinary team, s/he will closely interact with experimentalists and be responsible for data integration (genetic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomic data), as well as the generation and development of mathematical models of cellular metabolism.
|Qualification||The role-holder will need excellent communication skills, and have profound experience in programming (R, Python, MATLAB), experienced in applying statistics, and in handling large datasets. The post would suit someone with a background in either the biological or physical/mathematical sciences.|
