Current opportunities at SBI
Friday, 31 January, 2014
Lecturer in Statistics, UCD School of Mathematical Sciences (SMMS) & Systems Biology Ireland (SBI)
HR Ref: 006335
Closing date for applications: 16-Feb-2014
Brief description: SBI and SMMS are seeking a statistician with expertise in modelling large scale high-dimensional data sets. Priority will be given to applicants who have documented experience in using statistical methods to analyse biological systems. The appointee will be an integral part of both the Statistics group within SMMS and SBI, and will have expertise in areas such as computer intensive statistics methodology and statistical modelling of high-dimensional data. It is the intention of these two groups to foster stronger research links and the person appointed to this position will take a key role in the liaison between the two groups. The appointee will be a lecturer in SMMS and as such will have responsibility for developing new courses in Statistical and Mathematical Biology at undergraduate and masters’ level to develop a cohort of students trained in quantitative methods applied to the biological sciences.
Postdoctoral Researcher (Level I and II) on EU-FP7 funded Synthetic Signalling Programme, Systems Biology Ireland
HR Ref: 006369
Closing date: 11-Feb-2014
Brief description: SBI is seeking a researcher with
expertise in protein biochemistry, protein engineering and cell signalling to be applied to design and development of synthetic protein signalling cascades
the capacity to frame and build a newly emerging field of synthetic signalling circuits that exhibit desirable input-output relations, including signal amplification, switchable and oscillatory modules.
a flexible, open minded and creative approach that will help develop further signalling toolboxes with broad combinatorial potential for different types of signalling cascades.
Detailed job descriptions for both positions and online application process can be accessed via the UCD Vacancy Website.
Looking for an interesting place to do your PhD or postdoctoral research? SBI is a vibrant community of researchers from disciplines as different as mathematics, biology, chemistry, physics and computation, who share a common interest: Understanding the molecular workings of the communication networks that enable our cells to function. SBI is keen to strengthen existing efforts in key areas and open up new aspects of research. To support these initiatives SBI would be delighted to host PhD or postdoctoral Fellowships.
To give you a flavour of the type of research and researchers SBI are looking for, a selection of sample projects are available on the Fellowship Opportunities webpage, along with links to fellowship funding opportunities.

Postdoctoral Researcher (Level I and II) on PRTLI5 Nanormedies Programme, Systems Biology Ireland
SBI are seeking a postdoctoral scientist with expertise in the analysis of cell signalling pathways, in particular using imaging approaches and molecular and cell biology techniques.
The appointee will work on a project analysing how cell migration and signalling pathways that control migration are regulated by the microenvironment, including mechanical cues and growth factor gradients. This project is in collaboration with nano-engineers enabling the generation of controlled environmental conditions through the use of micro-engineered devices and nano-fabricated surfaces. The experimental work will feed into the mathematical and computational modelling which are used to analyse the dynamic behaviour of the relevant signalling networks and resulting biological processes. The post-holder will perform the experimental work, but work closely with colleagues from computational science, mathematics, chemistry and engineering as part of an interdisciplinary team.
