The Department of Mathematics of the University of Trento activates a tenure-track position in the field of Numerical Analysis (SSD MAT/08), looking for a young scientist with interest and experience in the applications of numerical and computational methods to biological and biomedical problems.
There are already a few members working on the application of mathematical, numerical and statistical methods to different types of biological problems, and the Department is interested in expanding the area. Candidates with a strong research background in Numerical Approximation, Scientific Computing with applications to Biology and/or Medicine are strongly encouraged to apply.
The Department seeks a scientist working on cutting edge research topics, internationally recognized as part of a scientific network of experts in her/his own field, possibly with experience in the supervision of successful doctoral students and interdisciplinary collaborations.
The Department coordinates a Master's Program in Mathematics, with a specific curriculum in Mathematics for Life Sciences with an average of 20-30 students per year. The Department is also involved in an interdisciplinary Master's program in Quantitative and Computational Biology. The PhD School in Mathematics enrolls in the average more than 10 students per year.
The successful candidate is expected to be one of the reference Faculty for the curriculum in Mathematics for Life Sciences, and to participate in teaching activities at all levels.
Moreover, candidates are expected to show a strong potential to apply to competitive research grants, in particular towards EU funding schemes.
Applications should be submitted exclusively through the web site
The deadline for applications is January 11, 2022, 13:00 CET.
Interested parties are welcome to contact the Head of the Department (current Head is professor Ana Alonso) at firstname.lastname@example.org or the administrative offices at email@example.com
