- theoretical metabolic systems biology
starting as soon as possible.
Our main focus is the development of advanced optimization-based metabolic modeling strategies, by integrating important biological constraints not considered in current mainstream algorithms such as flux balance analysis (FBA). In addition, we build models for simulating metabolic evolution in plants and bacteria. We will define a project in this framework that best fits your profile and experiences.
A PhD in physics, biochemistry, biology, or in a related subject is required. You should have extensive experience in metabolic modeling, documented through peer-reviewed publications.
Heinrich Heine University is a vibrant academic institution in the heart of West Germany, with particular emphasis on the life sciences. Our university aims at increasing the percentage of employed women. Applications from women will therefore be given preference in cases of equal aptitude, ability and professional achievements unless there are exceptional reasons for choosing another applicant. Applications from suitably qualified severely disabled persons or disabled persons regarded as being of equal status according to Book IX of the German social Code (SGB – Soziales Gesetzbuch) are encouraged.
