Research Associate/Fellow – Mathematical/Computational Modelling, Nottingham SBRC (closes 18 June 2015)

The aim of the post is to provide research support for the BBSRC/EPSRC Synthetic Biology Research Centre (SBRC) in the creation and exploitation of gas fermenting microbial chassis as it relates to the sustainable production of chemicals and fuels.  SBRC Nottingham is one of three UK centres created by the BBSRC/EPSRC in 2014 and has received £14.3M in funding for a 5 year period. We are recruiting exceptional post-doctoral researchers to join the modelling and analysis team. The team will conduct cutting edge research into novel computational and mathematical modelling and analysis approaches and development of an integrated software suite to facilitate the rapid development of microbial chassis able to produce a range of platform chemicals. We seek individuals who will focus on biochemical/synthetic biology modelling, whose responsibilities will include development of synthetic biology devices and modelling of biochemical pathways.
