Postdoctoral Fellowship: Time-Series Bio-Image Analysis and Mathematical Modeling Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the Systems Biology Group of the Hamilton Institute at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth. The vacancy is in the area of time-series bio-image analysis and mathematical modeling, with particular emphasis on developing mathematical models to extract quantitative, dynamic information from bio-imaging modalities (e.g. confocal and fluorescence microscopy). The advertised position is part of a Higher Education Authority investment for a National Biophotonics Imaging Platform (NBIP) for Ireland. The mission of the NBIP is to provide an integrated national infrastructure in research, education, technology development and industry collaboration for biophotonics and imaging. The Systems Biology Group at the Hamilton Institute will co-ordinate the Image to Mathematical Model Transition (IMMT) facility of the NBIP. IMMT will: a. Develop new algorithmic methods that perform the transition from temporal/spatial images to a quantitative mathematical representation of the corresponding dynamical variations (jointly with Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland). b. Distribute these algorithms throughout the platform by means of a software simulation and modelling workbench hosted by the Boole Centre for Research in Informatics (BCRI). The candidate should hold a PhD in Engineering/Computer Science or a related field, and have a sound scientific record in the area of mathematical modeling and image analysis. Some degree of familiarity with modelling biological or medical processes would be an advantage. Good communication, interpersonal and presentation skills are required. In addition, the candidate should be a team player who is capable of working together with experimentalists and biologists. A contract of 3 years duration will be offered to the successful candidate with salary in the band 40,000 to 43,000 Euros per annum. The Hamilton Institute is an inclusive, equal opportunity employer offering attractive conditions and a stimulating research environment.
