MFPL is seeking to recruit a (full time, permanent position):

University Professor of Quantitative Modelling of Biological Networks

We are looking for outstanding scientists who will work in close cooperation with experimentalist working groups and will use experimental data as the basis for the mathematical modelling and simulation of genetic, molecular and cell biological processes. The ideal candidate should have a history of investigating biological questions. The position will be shared between the Max F. Perutz Laboratories and the Faculty of Mathematics of the University of Vienna.

Successful candidates are internationally recognized as experts in the modelling of complex biological systems. They will establish a transversal research group for applied mathematics connecting the groups at the MFPL and the Faculty of Mathematics as well as a strong training program in the field of mathematics and statistics in biological systems.

Vienna is a vibrant multicultural capital, repeatedly ranked among the top-three cities worldwide for its quality of living. Child care facilities are available at the VBC. MFPL wishes to increase its share of female group leaders and applications from couples are also encouraged. The working language of the MFPL and VBC is English.
