The Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and the Delft University of Technology are providing the PhD Positions for high-potential applicants in the Netherlands.
This project will be carried out at the Centre for Integrative Bioinformatics of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (IBIVU), and at the Information & Communication Theory Group at the Delft University of Technology. IBIVU focuses on integrating theory, bioinformatics and modelling with experimental, quantitative biology. The Bioinformatics section of the Information & Communication Theory Group specialises in data-driven bioinformatics research in collaboration with researchers in medicine, molecular biology and biotechnology.
For this ambitious project, we are looking for two excellent, highly motivated and ambitious PhD candidates. For the Amsterdam part, we are looking for a candidate with an MSc degree in (micro)biology, biochemistry, systems biology, engineering, physics or mathematics. Affinity with mathematical models applied to biological systems is essential. For the Delft part, we are looking for a candidate experienced in machine learning and/or optimisation, with an MSc degree in bioinformatics, computer science, engineering, physics or mathematics. Experience with or affinity for biological applications is an asset. Both PhD candidates need to be able to work independently but as part of a multidisciplinary
team, and are expected to deliver a PhD thesis and a number of scientific publications within
a period of 4 years.
