[Closes 29 Sep 2017] RA post available in the Control Engineering Synthetic Biology group at Imperial College

Research Associate position in model identification, and analysis & design of biomolecular controllers for synthetically engineered living cells
A Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available to undertake research into model identification, and analysis & design of biomolecular controllers for synthetically engineered living cells. This position is available immediately and for ~27 months.
The project will be carried out in the “Control Engineering Synthetic Biology” group (http://www.bg.ic.ac.uk/research/g.stan/group/) at the Department of Bioengineering of Imperial College London. The main goal of this Research Assistant/Associate position will be to carry out a programme of research in the automatic identification of mathematical models of biomolecular networks in living cells (mainly bacteria such as E. coli and fungi such as yeast S. cerevisiae), and the mathematical/computational modelling, analysis, and design of deterministic and stochastic biomolecular controllers in such living cells.
The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D or equivalent with a background in control engineering/biophysics/mathematics, previous experience with system identification of biological systems, including gene regulatory networks and biochemical reaction network in living cells (e.g. bacteria such as E. coli) and/or with biomolecular feedback analysis and design. 
The closing date for applications is: 29 September 2017
