The bioinformatics research group of the K.U.Leuven is looking for
enthusiastic researchers with a creative and open mind. You are
fluent in English, have excellent communication skills, and a
background in engineering, computer science, mathematics,
statistics, molecular biology, or genetics.
Apply now, if you are interested in a Ph.D. or postdoc position
in our international and multidisciplinary bioinformatics team.
Check our web site for more information and detailed job
descriptions at www.kuleuven.be/bioinformatics.
Our bioinformatics research focuses on computational methods for
Systems Biology. In the context of Systems Biomedicine, we develop
probabilistic and statistical methods for the mining and
integration of high-throughput and clinical data. Our goal is to
identify key genes for the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment
of disease. In the context of top-down Systems Biology, we focus
on network organization and evolution in prokaryotes. With the
Center for Microbial and Plant Genetics, we use microbial Systems
Biology to model the pathogenic bacterium Salmonella typhimurium.
We cooperate intensively with experimentalists through the
SymBioSys Center for Computational Systems Biology
(www.kuleuven.be/symbiosys) and the Prometa Proteomics and
Metabolomics Facility (www.prometa.kuleuven.be); hereby getting
access to state-of-the-art facilities and original biological data.
The University of Leuven (www.kuleuven.be) is located next to
Brussels, Belgium in the Flemish Renaissance city of Leuven. The
university is the oldest in the Low Countries, the largest in
Belgium, and a member of the League of European Research
Universities – a partnership among 20 of Europe’s top research
universities. It is ideally located at the heart of Europe in the
international, historic, and dynamic city of Leuven
(www.leuven.be) in Flanders – one of Europe’s most
economically, socially, and culturally flourishing regions.
