Position: Research Fellow in Mathematical and Physical Biology
Institution: University College London
Department: London Centre for Nanotechnology
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: This is a full time Research position for two years (with a potential of an extension for an additional year) funded by The Crick Institute. The position is related to a project that explores the role of growth and patterning in development and evolution. The successful candidate will address the interplay between tissue patterning and cell growth using tools from mathematics and physics such as dynamical systems and scaling laws. We will combine analytical and numerical tools to develop a theoretical framework for the evolution of size, shape and morphology. The theoretical tools and analysis developed will be rooted in and motivated by experimental observations in the groups of collaborators and beyond
Requirements: Applicants should have a PhD in Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science or related discipline in the Physical Sciences. No prior knowledge of biology is required but willingness to work at the interface of physics/maths and biology is essential. Coding competency (in C, Python, Matlab or similar language) is essential. Applicants should demonstrate a publication record appropriate to their level of experience. The successful candidate will be self-driven, independent and able to work as a member of a team
