Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Applied Mathematics
The University of Adelaide

The School of Mathematical Sciences

Closing date: 27th March 2016

The University of Adelaide is one of Australia's leading Group of Eight, research-intensive universities and is consistently ranked among the top 1% of universities in the world. Established in 1874, it is Australia's third oldest university with a strong reputation for preparing educated leaders and delivering research outcomes that contribute to local, national and global wellbeing.

The successful applicant will join a multidisciplinary team that aims to model and quantify the cellular mechanisms of yeast growth, to advance our understanding of these organisms and support strategies to prevent and treat disease. The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will work with Dr. Ben Binder, University of Adelaide, on developing hybrid models (agent-based and continuum) of the yeast growth process, which will be validated with images from yeast growth experiments. The role provides the opportunity to collaborate with Prof. Stephen Oliver, University of Cambridge, who is an international expert on the biology of yeast.
