Carry out your own PhD project! – in Systems Biology – supervised by Prof. Jens Timmer
Closing Date: 30-04-20
Institution: Hector Fellow Academy
The Hector Fellow Academy offers you the opportunity to realize a self-developed research project under supervision Prof. Jens Timmer. He is one of the Hector Fellows, a community of outstanding professors from different research institutions across Germany working in STEM-subjects, medicine, and psychology.
He is one of the leading scientists in the field of systems biology where he uses physics-inspired data-based mathematical models to understand cell biological processes. His approach contributed to understand signaling pathways which contribute to the development of cancer.
You are enthusiastic about developing and investigating an innovative research idea within the discipline of Prof. Timmer? You have a master’s degree in a scientific or engineering subject with excellent grades? You stand out from your peers due to your strong commitment and independent work? You are team oriented and communicative? You are willing to change your place of residence to Freiburg?
Our PhD students are employed as full-time research assistants at the University of Freiburg for a period of three years. The salary is determined by the institute’s guidelines (according to the general pay scale of German universities approx. 47,000 EUR gross income per year). In addition, Hector Fellow PhD students receive grants for research expenses (15,000 EUR per year) and are given the opportunity to gain interdisciplinary expertise and relevant soft skills by participating in selected training activities.
Apply with your innovative, high-quality research idea via our Application Portal.
Current application period: January 15th ̶ March 31st, 2020
Further information regarding the application process and the Hector Fellow Academy is available on www.hector-fellow-academy.de.
Post-doc: Mathematical biology
Faculty of Science, University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice, Czech Republic, is looking for candidates for two positions Postdoctoral Junior Group Leader in Biology.
One of the fields of research is Mathematical biology. If selected, the postdoctoral fellow will become a part of the Centre for Mathematical Biology at the Institute of Mathematics (mathbio.prf.jcu.cz).
Ongoing collaboration with existing faculties is expected but own research is welcome to broaden the scope of mathematical biology at the Centre and to strengthen math teaching at the Institute.

Workshop “*Stochastic Models and Experiments in Ecology and Biology*”
which will be held in *Venice, September 21-24, 2020*, at the European Center of Living Technology (ECLT). Further details can be found on the website
The aim of the workshop is to bring together scientists with different backgrounds (mathematics, biology, physics and computing) interested in microbial ecology and evolutionary biology (both theory and experiments).
We will discuss important and recent research topics in these areas as well as methods and ideas. Topics will include stochastic population dynamics, quantitative and systemic biology, community ecology of microbes, statistical mechanics models in ecology, evolution in microbial communities, biodiversity coexistence and species interactions. The style of the workshop will purposely be informal to encourage discussions.
Otto X. Cordero,
The *call of abstracts for contributed talks will close on* *May 24,

The 19th International Symposium on Dynamic Games and Applications
The 19th International Symposium on Dynamic Games and Applications, a four day conference, will be held in Porto, Portugal, June 16-19, 2020. The four day technical program will consist of plenary sessions, invited sessions, and presentations of contributed papers in several topics on Game Theory and its Applications. The International Symposium on Dynamic Games and Applications is a biennial event, running since 1984, which showcases the latest research in dynamic games, broadly defined.

We would like to invite you to apply with proposals for Minisimposia and Satellite Conferences during the 8th European Congress of Mathematics (8ECM), to be held at Portorož, Slovenia, 5-11 July, 2020.
Internal and External Satellite Conferences (SC) will be held three days prior and after the official conference program. 8ECM Organizing Committee will offer full organizational and logistic support for organizers of Internal SC, so your focus would be entirely on the scientific programme.
For Minisyposia organizers, special incentives are offered.
Please review the open call at the official 8ECM website and apply no later than the following deadlines:
Satellite Conferences - February 1st 2019
Minisymposia - December 1st 2019
We would also kindly ask you to forward this announcement to colleagues at your institution. If possible, please publish it on your institution's social media and website using this link.
We are looking forward to welcome you and your colleagues at the Congress and we remain available for further questions you may have at email@example.com.
