Applications are invited for the position of Postdoctoral Associate in Department of
Mathematical Sciences at Montana State University. The postdoctoral associate will work
in the research group of Prof. Tomas Gedeon on development and applications of a new
modeling platform (DSGRN) for dynamics of gene regulatory networks. This work is done
in collaboration with groups at Rutgers and Duke Universities in a highly collaborative
and interdisciplinary environment.
DSGRN (Dynamic signatures generated by regulatory networks) provides a comprehensive description of dynamics across parameter space of gene regulatory networks. The
projects range from applications to cell cycle dynamics, control of network phenotypes
in cancer models, construction of potential networks from time series data to theoretical aspects of DSGRN description of dynamics, development and efficient computational
implementation of new algorithms.
A successful candidate will have background in dynamical systems and modeling, ability
to use Matlab and desire to work in intersection of mathematics and cell biology. An ideal
candidate will have additional background in Python, data science techniques of time series
analysis, and prior exposure to cell biology and gene regulation modeling.
To apply please send a CV, the statement describing your research interests to the email below. The review of the applications starts on Nov. 1st and will continue until the position
is filled. The start date will be determined based on agreement with the candidate, but
is expected to be between January 2020 and September 2020.
