Supervisor: Dr. Pan-Jun Kim (Assistant Professor), Department of Biology
The new research group led by Dr. Pan-Jun Kim at Hong Kong Baptist University invites applications for PhD positions (research postgraduate students) in the area of computational & systems biology. Hong Kong Baptist University is a public institution funded by the Hong Kong SAR Government, promoting academic excellence and innovation.
Pan-Jun Kim’s group is undertaking cutting-edge research with predictive computational modeling and large-scale data analysis, which will lead to breakthroughs in our understanding of collective dynamics of biological systems. Indeed, we live in an exciting era for life sciences. Recent experimental technologies have generated enormous amount of biological data at various scales. Computational methodologies developed in mathematics, physics, computer science, and engineering enable modeling and analyses of complex biological processes. In our research group, the specific areas of interest include global microbial ecosystems inside human body and their medical implications, and various metabolic, regulatory, and signaling networks inside/between cells and their emergent functional outcomes.

We welcome applicants from every discipline. The candidates should be highly motivated, mathematically talented, cooperative, and responsible. The candidates are expected to have some computer programing experience (e.g., Python, C, or C++), and good communication skills in English. Prior research experience would be a plus.
If interested, please send your cover letter, curriculum vitae (including academic qualifications, awards, research experience, and/or publications), and copies of transcripts to Dr. Pan-Jun Kim at extutor (at) gmail (dot) com.
