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. Furthermore, within this newly established research group there is an opening for
three research positions (E13)
for 3 years for Postdocs
The positioning of the research group 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,
modeling and integration of multi-layer genomics data, predicting and modeling
cell behavior from perturbation experiments, analysis of two to three-dimensional
images including dynamic images in the context of immune responses.
Applicants for the positions 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.
The University of Bonn is an equal opportunity employer.
Active cooperation in the excellent environment of both clusters is expected.
Depending on the respective research focus, candidates become members
of one of the mathematical institutes, or the Life & Medical Sciences Institute
(LIMES) of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, or the Bonn
Institutes of Immunosciences and Infection of the Faculty of Medicine at the
University of Bonn.
Formal requirements are regulated by § 36 of the Higher Education Act of
North-Rhine Westphalia (Hochschulgesetz des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen).
Applications should be sent, using our online application form
by October 1st, 2017
for the postdoc positions to Prof. Dr. Anton Bovier, Institute for Applied Mathematics,
Endenicher Allee 60, 53115 Bonn, Germany
