The new research group led by Dr. Pan-Jun Kim at Hong Kong Baptist University (Department of Biology) invites applications for postdoctoral positions in the area of Quantitative Biological Modeling/Systems Biology: http://panjunkim.com.
The research will focus on the computational modeling and analysis of complex microbial communities inside human body (“human microbiome”). Our body is home to a variety of microbial cells, and they significantly affect our health and disease. An integrative investigation of collective dynamics of this microbial ecosystem is very important toward biomedical applications.
The ideal candidates are expected to have experience/interest in the areas of computational biology and mathematical modeling, strong backgrounds in computer simulations with programing languages such as python and C++, and some familiarity with the Linux environment. Previous experience with statistical physics and/or nonlinear dynamics would be a plus.
Screening of applications begins immediately and will continue until the position is filled. The appointment is available from March 2018. To apply, please e-mail curriculum vitae along with a brief statement of your research interests to Dr. Pan-Jun Kim at extutor (at) gmail (dot) com, and arrange to have three letters of recommendation e-mailed to the same address.
