*Postdoc Position Computational Systems Biology
'Systems Bioinformatics: Computational Modelling Methods' f/m

VU University Amsterdam, the Netherlands

*Research project *

The goal of the project is to develop and implement computer methods for 
computational modelling of biological systems. This encompasses methods 
for computational model assembly, execution, analysis and parameter 
estimation. This means collaboration with several experimental groups 
which work among others on metabolism in micro-organisms, animals and 
humans, on plant biology, nutrition and disease processes such as 
cancer. We also interact with the mathematical modelling group of the 
Netherlands Institute for Systems Biology. In this way this project is 
part of the core activity in Dutch systems biology.

The project focuses on developing and implementing computational methods 
generically useful for computational modelling of biological systems. 
This encompasses computational model assembly, modification, 
maintenance, execution, simulation, optimisation, parameter estimation 
etc. Parameter sensitivity spectrum analysis, ensemble simulation, 
model-based data analysis techniques, multiscale modelling, 
'e-BioScience' approaches and data assimilation methods may be part of 
the project. Demonstration of the effectiveness of developed methods by 
application to modelling of some of the example biological systems is 

This Systems Bioinformatics project is funded by The Netherlands 
Consortium for Systems Biology (NCSB) and in total involves six Dutch 
bioinformatics centres. In addition, the Systems Bioinformatics group is 
part of the BioAssist programme of the Netherlands Bioinformatics 
Centre. The VU group coordinates the six centres involved in the Systems 
Bioinformatics project. The Postdoc plays an active role in coordination 
of the project with the bioinformatic and experimental partners.
