Location: South Kensington Campus
Applications are invited for a Research Associate in Computational Biology as part of the research group of Dr. Ruben Perez-Carrasco.
As a member of our team, you will contribute in a project focused on analysing the biomechanical mechanisms of cell competition during early embryonic development. This will involve creating computational agent-based models of cell population competition and developing deep learning inference strategies to integrate the computational models design with live-cell imaging of cell cultures.
The position is funded for up to 3 years, during which time you will conduct independent research under Dr. Ruben Perez-Carrasco’s supervision. This role is part of a joint collaboration with Prof. Tristan Rodriguez’s experimental group, offering the opportunity of informing experiment designs using the developed models and computational tools.
Duties and responsibilities
The position is full time and fixed term for up to 36 months and is funded by the BBSRC. The successful candidates are expected to take up the position as soon as possible, but ideally before March 2024.
Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as a Research Assistant.
Provisional interview timeline: candidates will be invited to an interview in November. Offers will be made only after all interviews have taken place.
The successful candidate will be based at Imperial College South Kensington Campus in the Department of Life Sciences. The DoLS Newsletters provide a useful insight into the activities and life in our department.
If you are interested, please submit a formal application by completing the online form. Should you require any further details on the role please contact: Dr. Ruben Perez-Carrasco –email@example.com.
