The University of Bonn with its two Clusters of Excellence, the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics, and ImmunoSensation, intends to significantly strengthen the existing collaborations between these two clusters and to establish an internationally visible research group in the field of mathematical modeling in life and medical sciences, among other by filling three new professorships (W2). In this context, it invites applications for
three postdoctoral scientist positions (TVL 13)
In selected cases an extension of the three year positions will be possible. Positioning of this group of scientists at the interface of two clusters of excellence is expected to provide a unique opportunity to develop new and challenging mathematical models with a significant impact on the understanding of the immune system and immune-mediated diseases.
The new research group shall engage in efficient modeling of the complex processes in medical and life sciences as well as in the mathematical analysis of the involved mathematical structures. The range of possible topics includes -- but is not limited to -- the analysis of information processing, the dynamics of the immune response, modeling and optimization of treatment protocols, or the interplay with genetics, sparse data problems in single cell approaches, modelling and integration of multi-layer genomics data, predicting and modelling cell behavior from perturbation experiments, analysis of two to three-dimensional images including dynamic images in the context of immune responses.
Applicants should have a strong research background in applied mathematics or theoretical life sciences, and a proven record and interest in mathematical modeling in close collaboration with experimental researchers in life sciences.
Active cooperation in the excellent environment of both clusters is expected. Depending on the respective research focus, candidates become members of the Institute for Applied Mathematics, of the Institute for Numerical Simulation, or of the Life & Medical Sciences Institute (LIMES) of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, or of the Bonn Institutes of Immunosciences and Infection of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Bonn.
Applications should be sent, using our online application form https://hcm.uni-bonn.de/hcm-immunosensation/, by 28 February 2018 to Prof. Dr. Anton Bovier, Institute for Applied Mathematics, Endenicher Allee 60, D-53115 Bonn, Germany.
