Postdoctoral Fellow – SYNTERRA Project

Mathematics & Statistics - UK Jobs

Contract Duration-Length of Time (years/months): 2 years
Advertised Grade-Grading: Postdoc Stipend 
About the team/job
EMBL Barcelona is seeking postdoctoral researchers to work on computational modelling of dryland soil ecosystems, especially in relation to mesocosm experiments. The project SYNTERRA is closely co-supervised with our collaborator Ricard Sole, at the Pompeu Fabra University (UPF). 
The project aims to develop theoretical and computational models of these ecosystems – in particular aiming to address the design and effects of synthetic biology-based interventions to mitigate the impacts of desertification caused by global warming. The research will require a multi-scale approach to ecosystem organization with particular emphasis on understanding the impact of modified strains in both soil microbiome dynamics and vegetation cover patterns in space and time. The project will benefit from both ongoing designs of microcosm and mesocosm facilities at EMBL and massive available data sets from drylands. The latter include diverse kinds of information, from co-occurrence microbial networks to remote sensing maps. Modelling efforts should help to address the analysis of these experimental designs, the definition of microbiome-related warning signals and the scalability of the terraformation strategies.
Your role
To develop new mathematical and computational models of soil ecosystems, integrating both knowledge from the literature, and quantitative data from our collaborators.
To participate in the design of microcosms, and experiments to test model predictions.
You have
Experience in complex systems, systems biology, ecological modelling.
High competence in programming and computer science.
Familiarity with network science approaches.
Fluent English.
You might also have
Familiarity with synthetic biology.
Experience and skills in design and fabrication of devices.
Why join us
EMBL offers a highly collaborative and uniquely international working environment. We foster top quality, interdisciplinary research and expect that this individual will bridge research groups across EMBL Barcelona and our collaborators across Europe and in the US.
EMBL is an inclusive, equal opportunity employer offering attractive conditions and benefits appropriate to an international research organization with a very collegial and family friendly working environment. EMBL is committed to internationality, diversity and equality, and as such encourages applications from underrepresented groups.
What else do I need to know
We are Europe’s flagship research laboratory for the life sciences – an intergovernmental organisation performing scientific research in disciplines including molecular biology, physics, chemistry and computer science. We are an international, innovative and interdisciplinary laboratory with more than 1900 employees from many nations, operating across six sites, in Heidelberg (HQ), Barcelona, Hinxton near Cambridge, Hamburg, Grenoble and Rome.

They will also have a good understanding of quantum algorithms and an interest in learning and applying new quantum algorithmic techniques.
Experience in lattice QCD computations or numerical simulations of quantum field theories is desired. You will contribute to the ongoing projects in quantum computation and develop new ones, disseminate results via publications and conference talks, and actively participate in the academic life of the group, which also includes assisting PhD students.
Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 20 months in the first instance.
Informal inquiries can be made by contacting Dr Sergii Strelchuk [email protected] or [email protected]
