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 and biologists at CIC bioGUNE


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
