1 PhD studentship, 2 Postdoctoral vacancies, Computer Science and Info, University of Nottingham

http://www.asap.cs.nott.ac.uk/asapvaca/vacancies.php

School of Computer Science and Information Technology   University of Nottingham
1 PhD studentship, 2 Postdoctoral vacancies available:  Closing date is 12 July 2007. 
With funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) the project (Semi) Formal Artificial Life Through P-systems & Learning Classifier Systems: An Investigation into InfoBiotics, invites for applications from  interested candidates at both the postdoctoral and doctoral training level.  This project seeks a fundamental rethink on the way bottom-up Artificial Life research is conducted and  will operate at the interface of biology as it could be, i.e. artificial life, and biology as it is, i.e. Systems Biology.   
This high profile multidisciplinary project involves close collaborations with colleagues in computer sciences and biology departments at universities and research institutes in the UK, Israel, Italy, USA, and Germany. The successful candidates will be expected to travel frequently both within the UK and abroad to collaborate with our research partners.  Applicants must have an interest in the development of novel computational foundations for the study, design, specification, optimisation and data mining of Artificial Life Systems with a potential for applications to the systems biology arena.  An essential attribute is a strong interest in working on an interdisciplinary field where gaining knowledge of new areas and techniques is a constant requirement.
 PhD candidates should have at least an upper second-class honours degree (ideally a first class degree), or a combination of qualifications and/or experience equivalent to that level.  Ideally, students should have a BSc or MSc degree in computer science or biology (but candidates with a mathematical, physical, or chemical background are also encouraged to apply). This studentship provides home tuition fees (UK/EU students) and a tax-free stipend of around 12,000 per annum.  Students from outside the UK/EU with full or partial complementary funding from another source are also welcome to apply.  This studentship is available from 1 September 2007.
PostDoctoral candidates should have a Ph.D. in computer sciences, biology, mathematics, physics or chemistry. If the Ph.D. is not in computer science then proven programming skills are a required condition. Relevant experience in Artificial Life, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, P-systems (or other formal modeling techniques such as Pi-calculus, PRISM for systems biology, etc) and /or Bioinformatics/Computational Biology/Systems Biology is a plus. Evidence of top quality research in the form of published papers and/or software is a definite advantage.  Salary will be within the range 23457 - 26401 per annum accordingly to experience and qualifications. These 2 posts are available from 1 September 2007.
Informal enquiries to Dr N Krasnogor (+44 115 846 7592 or nxk@cs.nott.ac.uk). 
Applications are only accepted through the electronic system  at: http://www.asap.cs.nott.ac.uk/asapvaca/vacancies.php.
