Qualification Details

The scientists with strong mathematical and computational skills in physics/complex systems who wants to extend their skills to biological experiments are strongly encouraged to apply. Alternatively, we seek a scientist with strong background in quantitative microbial experiments, who is enthusiastic about work environment with many theoretical ideas.

Responsibilities/Job Description

We are looking for a talented, highly motivated and creative scientist who is interested in exploring questions at the interface between physics and biology. The project is focused on the viruses infecting bacteria, an ideal in-vivo model system to study the interplay between a virus and its host. We explore virus development as a dynamic process, exhibiting decisions, stochasticity, pattern formation to macroscopic scale of epidemics as it spread in a 2 or 3 dimensional geometry. Bacterial phages are drivers of microbial ecology, gene transfer and microbial evolution.  We develop mathematical and computational models to mimic, suggest and perform experiments on these fascinating systems.

The project is part of the research project “Universal Growth Laws of Viruses of Bacteria”, led by Associate Professor Namiko Mitarai and financed by NERD Program (Novo Nordisk Foundation).

The postdoc’s duties will include research as well as teaching. The post may also include performance of other duties.

About Center for Models of Life

We are part of the Center for Models of Life in the Biocomplexity section at the Niels Bohr Institute. We conduct research on the science of complex phenomena in physics and biology.

In the Center for Models of Life, CMOL, we use methods from physics to develop understanding of living systems. We model regulation of living systems aiming to understand the strategies of gene regulation and dynamics of self organization, with a focus on simple conceptual and quantitative models. Our research tackles diversity of biological systems from biological development to emergence of complex communities.
