Applications are invited for a PhD situation at the Laboratory of Biosystem Dynamics (LBD), Computational Systems Biology Research Group, Department of Signal Processing, Tampere University of Technology, Finland. The successful candidate will work in a greatly and highly interdisciplinary group that consist of specialists in experimental biology, computational biology, mathematics, physics, signal and image processing, statistics, and computer science. Current research efforts include dynamics of gene expression and cellular aging in bacteria, among others, using in vivo single-molecule approaches. The group is involved in numerous collaborations with national and international groups.
The topic is the process of activation of gene expression in bacteria. From single-cell live imaging produced in our lab, techniques from image and signal processing will be developed and used to extract the data from the measurements. In addition, stochastic models will be developed. We commonly use Matlab and C++ to implement models and tools. Moreover, we use a number of techniques, methods from statistics to analyze the data.
Qualification: The successful candidate should have a Masters’ degree in Signal Processing, Computer Science, or Physics (with strong programming skills). Some knowledge of basic biology is an advantage.
The salary will be highly competitive, according to the regulations of TUT.
