We are seeking qualified applicants for a postdoctoral researcher to work on an NIH funded project to develop control systems for synthetic probiotic bacteria. Specifically, we seek a postdoctoral researcher to model the dynamics of synthetic gene circuits at the single cell and population levels. The position is part of a collaborative effort that involves experimental biologists and applied mathematicians: The successful applicant will work with the mathematicians K. Josić and W. Ott (University of Houston), and biologists M. Bennett (Rice University) and L. Swint-Kruse (University of Kansas) on modeling and developing new methods for transcriptional bacterial computing. The project will involve mathematical modeling, model analysis, data analysis, and regular interactions with experimental scientists. A PhD or equivalent degree in mathematics, physics or related field is required. We are especially interested in identifying candidates with a background in mathematical biology, nonlinear dynamics, and/or statistical physics.

Applicants must submit a cover letter, curriculum vita, a research statement, and three letters of recommendation to MathJobs.Org.

The University of Houston is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. Minorities, women, veterans, and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
