PhD Students in Quantitative Biological Modeling, Systems Biology, and Biomedical Informatics
The research group led by Dr. Pan-Jun Kim at Hong Kong Baptist University (Department of Biology) invites applications for PhD students (research postgraduate students) in the areas of quantitative biological modeling, systems biology, and/or biomedical informatics. Hong Kong Baptist University is a public institution funded by the Hong Kong SAR Government, promoting academic excellence and innovation. Information on Pan-Jun Kim’s group can be found from http://panjunkim.com.
The research will focus on the predictive computational modeling of (i) global microbial ecosystems inside human body in health and disease and (ii) various metabolic, regulatory, and signaling networks inside/between cells, and (iii) large-scale analysis of multi-omics and medical data. Screening of applications begins immediately and will continue until the positions are filled.
Applicants for PhD students should be trained in mathematics, physics, or other computational sciences, and should be highly motivated, cooperative, and responsible. The candidates are expected to have some computer programing experience (e.g., Python or C++), and good communication skills in English. Prior research experience would be a plus. To apply, please send your cover letter, curriculum vitae (including the contact information of at least three references), and English-translated copies of transcripts to Dr. Pan-Jun Kim through the email address: panjunkim (AT) hkbu (DOT) edu (DOT) hk. Non-English native applicants are encouraged to send their scores in TOEFL, IELTS, or CET to the same email address.
