Scholarship Description: Inside living cells, biochemical processes are often described with inherent randomness in order to account for a noisy microscopic environment. A common approach for simulating such models is to perform updates to some state-variable whenever certain events happen. These typically include reaction events and molecular movements. The holder of the position will be involved with advancing methods for efficient simulation of event-based models on modern multicore architectures. This includes, but are not limited to, aspects of high-performance computing, a certain amount of software flexibility, and numerically approximate algorithms.
