The MSc in Mathematical Medicine and Biology at the University of Nottingham is open for applications to start in September 2017.
The MSc in Mathematical Medicine and Biology prepares students to pursue successful careers in either academia or industry. As such, it provides an excellent first step towards embarking on a PhD in Mathematical Biology or towards working for companies in areas like drug development, healthcare, or sustainable agriculture.
The programme provides training in advanced mathematical techniques including partial differential equations and stochastic processes. Moreover, it exposes students to a broad variety of biological and medical applications, ranging from subcellular processes such as gene regulation to organ-level dynamics. In particular the MSc offers practical experience in modelling dynamics in neuroscience, cardiac dynamics, cancer, inflammation and plants. Overall the MSc in Mathematical Medicine and Biology is an interdisciplinary postgraduate degree that combines exciting mathematical research areas with a wide range of practically relevant biological and medical questions.
The programme currently offers 5 taught modules, which is followed by a dissertation. During the taught portion of the course students are introduced to key modelling concepts and numerical approaches in Mathematical Biology. In addition, advanced mathematical techniques are covered that allow students to successfully engage with today's challenges in biology and medicine. The dissertation provides students with an exciting opportunity to study a specific topic in more detail. Here, the wide range of interests and expertise within the research group of Mathematical Medicine and Biology at the University of Nottingham give students a great experience with hands-on research.
Applications accepted until June 12th. Please send an email to email@example.com, with CV and names of two references. The PhD thesis will be supervised by Madalena Chaves at Inria Sophia Antipolis and funded by ANR.
From: Esteban Vargas <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Tue, May 23, 2017 at 11:34 AM Subject: PhD Position: Computational Biology, Frankfurt
The group of Systems Medicine at the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies invites applications for a full-time PhD position in Computational biology. The successful candidate will receive a scholarship for 3 years.
Major duties: * Develop mathematical models describing diseases using deterministic models, stochastic models, and compartmental models. * Analyze clinical and experimental data from collaborators using machine learning and bioinformatics approaches. * Develop novel algorithms to treat diseases. * Publish research findings in scientific journals and present them at major scientific meetings.
Qualifications: * A bachelor/MSc degree in a quantitatively-oriented field, such as engineering, computer science or applied mathematics. * Excellent command of English. * Knowledge in analytical and quantitative methods. * Experience in MATLAB or R, and LaTex. * Knowledge of immunology is a plus.
Please send questions or your application with a motivation letter, outlining your interest in a PhD position, along with your curriculum vitae which should include the names and contact details of three referees, to email@example.com

A Postdoctoral Research Assistant position is available on the epigenetics of the brain tumour glioblastoma. The project is a close collaboration with experimentalists and is led by PI Prof Silvia Marino at the Blizard Institute. The appointee will work with a wide variety of next generation sequencing data, applying existing statistical approaches and developing new integrative analysis methods to gain insight into the epigenetic mechanisms underlying this aggressive disease. Option to gain experience of experimental techniques if desired, but not necessary.
