Berlin, Germany

The MAX DELBRÜCK CENTER FOR MOLECULAR MEDICINE (MDC) is a member of the Helmholtz Association of National Research Centers, supported by the Federal Government of Germany and the Land Berlin. For Mathematical Cell Physiology, starting later than January 31st, 2019, we are looking for one

PhD position in Theoretical Biophysics

Description:
One PhD position in Theoretical Biological Physics

We are looking for one PhD candidate to theoretically explore models of noisy spike-generating cellular signalling systems for which the intracellular Calcium dynamics is a prominent example. Methods will be developed within the frameworks of the theory of stochastic processes, statistical physics and nonlinear dynamics.

The project is a collaboration between the research groups of Martin Falcke (Max-Delbrueck Center for Molecular Medicine Berlin and Humboldt University Berlin) and Benjamin Lindner (Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin and Humboldt University Berlin) and the PhD students are expected to closely collaborate.

The successful candidates should have a degree in physics (a background in physical biology is desirable but not obligatory), expertise in analytical calculations, programming skills (C++ or C, Python, LaTeX, Linux), an excellent command of the English language, good communication skills, and team spirit.

Funding is provided for three years, starting at the earliest February 1, 2019.

Requirements:
Master in Physics

The initial contract will be for a three years period. Salary is according to the German TVöD E 13 (Bund) 75%.

The MDC is an equal opportunity employer and supports gender equality.
