Postdoctoral and PhD position - Ghent University (Belgium)
The Research Group Bioinformatics and Evolutionary Genomics of the Department of Plant Systems Biology at Ghent University (Belgium) is currently looking for exceptional candidates to fill one postdoctoral and one PhD position.
The research will focus on computational systems biology, primarily through the modeling and analysis of biological networks, and is part of a newly founded interdisciplinary research initiative on top down systems biology, involving partners at 3 Flemish universities.
The ideal candidate will have a background in bioinformatics with a preference for algorithms and statistics, or a background in mathematics, physics, engineering or computer science with a strong interest in biological applications, and have sufficient programming experience in Matlab, Java, C++ or similar languages. Applicants must have an advanced knowledge of English, which is the language used for all departmental communications.
Interested candidates should send a curriculum vitae including list of publications, a motivation letter and the names of three referees by email to Prof. Yves Van de Peer ( ).
The Bioinformatics and Evolutionary Genomics group is a young and dynamic research group of about 25 people carrying out research on the structure and evolution of genes, gene families, genomes and genetic networks. The Department of Plant Systems Biology belongs to the Flanders Interuniversity Institute for Biotechnology and Ghent University, and is located in Ghent (Flanders, Belgium), a beautiful and welcoming city of 230,000 inhabitants, with a large student population and a dynamic cultural scene. It is only 30 minutes from Brussels and about two hours from Amsterdam, London and Paris.
