Joint PhD Position in Mathematical Modelling for Cancer Research

Project description

Tracking development of resistance to anti-cancer therapy through mathematical modeling

The goal of the project is to derive an efficient mathematical approach for tracking development of resistance to anti-cancer therapy using genomic information. The proposed project includes statistical analysis of the available real data; building a predictive model and implementing it in the in-house software package; simulations and post-processing of the simulation data. The work will be done in close collaboration with mathematicians at BCAM http://www.bcamath.org/en/research/lines/MSLMS and biologists at CIC bioGUNE https://www.cicbiogune.es/research/groups/molecular.

Remuneration

The gross annual salary of the PhD fellowship will be 18.000 €. There is a moving allowance for those researchers that come from a research institution outside the Basque Country from EUR 1,000 to EUR 2,000 gross.

Additional information

The contract will be for 3 years.

The selected candidate must have applied before the application deadline online at the webpage http://www.bcamath.org/es/research/job/ic2019-winter-phd-position-in-mathematical-modelling-for-cancer-research

The candidates that do not fulfil the mandatory requirements will not be evaluated with respect to their scientific profile.

The candidate will take part in a collaborative project between BCAM http://www.bcamath.org/en and CIC bioGUNE https://www.cicbiogune.es/. His/her workload will be evenly distributed between both research centres and he/she will be supervised by E. Akhmatskaya (BCAM) and M. dM. Vivanco (CIC bioGUNE).
