Position: Doctoral Candidate/PhD Student - Systems Control Group
Institution: University of Luxembourg
Location: Luxembourg City, Luxembourg
Duties: Project “Prediction of causal regulatory interaction networks based on large-scale time-series data”. The Systems Control Group focuses on network inference, which means to address the inverse problem consisting in inferring from time-series data the topology and properties of the underlying network which generated the data. This project is inserted within the framework of the interdisciplinary Doctoral Training Unit NextImmune. Data will be obtained from another group at LIH, and the role of the PhD candidate is to use that data and established computational tools to identify potential regulatory causality between genes in Th2 cells. This will provide a directed network of cause-effect relationship between measurements (genes)
Requirements: Hold (or being about to obtain) a Master degree in Mathematics, Theoretical Physics, Control Systems Engineering, Theoretical Machine Learning or related fields. Strong mathematical background is a requirement. Biological knowledge is not essential. We will only consider students that graduate in their top 20% undergraduate and Master’s class rank (equivalent to a UK first class degree)
