    Carry out your own PhD project! – in Systems Biology – supervised by Prof. Jens Timmer

    Closing Date:   30-04-20

    Institution:   Hector Fellow Academy

    Main text:

    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.

    Your profile

    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 offer

    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.

    Your application

    Apply with your innovative, high-quality research idea via our Application Portal.

    Current application period: January 15th  ̶  March 31st, 2020

    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.

    Invited Speakers(*tbc):

    Otto X. Cordero,

    Eric Dykeman,

    Daniel Fisher,

    Nigel Goldenfeld*,

    Susan Holmes*,

    Terry Hwa,

    Eleni Katifori,

    David Nelson,

    Derek Tittensor,

     The *call of abstracts for contributed talks will close on* *May 24,

    2020* (EasyChair

    submission link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=smeeb2020 ).

    Please* bring this announcement to the attention of anyone who may be interested, especially students and post-docs *who are not in this mailing list.

     There are 2 registration fee waivers for Ph.Ds / young Post-docs. Look in the website for all info.

    The* attendance fee of the workshop will be 200 Euro*, which includes coffee breaks and workshop material. However,* owing to the current Covid-19 *epidemic, the payment is not open at the moment. Once the workshop will eventually be confirmed, we will open the payment link and contact those who have pre-registered or submitted an abstract for the final registration.
