Description
SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Two PhD positions are available in the Computational Biology
Group at the Department of

Biosystems Science and Engineering of ETH Zurich in Basel. Our
group is engaged in

developing mathematical models and efficient algorithms for
complex biosystems. We are

particularly interested in disease-associated cellular networks
and evolutionary dynamics,

including genetic and epigenetic variation in cancer and
infectious diseases. We seek two

PhD students for the following research projects:

1) Analysis of deep
sequencing data
: Development and
application of statistical models

and efficient algorithms for analyzing high-throughput
next-generation sequencing data;

haplotype inference of mixed virus and tumor samples; human SNP
analysis in association

studies; RNA-seq and ChIP-seq.

2) Reconstruction
of cellular networks from perturbation data
:
Probabilistic network

reconstruction from RNAi data in the framework of graphical
models; experimental design

of RNAi screens; network analysis and comparison.

Successful applicants have a strong background in computational
biology, mathematics,

computer science, statistics, physics, or a related field, and
exposure to modeling biological

systems. Candidates are expected to engage in interdisciplinary
research groups and to

foster collaborations with biologists and bioengineers.

The Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering of ETH
Zurich is an integral part of

SystemX.ch, the Swiss initiative in Systems Biology. It is
located in Basel, a European hotspot

for biomedical research, in close proximity of the Biozentrum of
the University of

Basel, the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research,
and the pharmaceutical

and biotech industry. ETH Zurich is a major research university,
offering an excellent

environment for innovative and collaborative research across
disciplines.

Please send the usual application material, including at least
two references, as a single

PDF file to
niko.beerenwinkel@bsse.ethz.ch
(preferred), or via surface mail to:
