Scholarship opportunities for international students for Doctoral Studies in Theoretical Physics, Computational Biology, Lund University, Sweden
Study Subject: Theoretical Physics, Computational Biology
Employer: Lund University
Scholarship Description:The student will work in the area of dynamical modelling of biological networks, in particular in relation to network evolution. Primary biological topics to be addressed are the evolutionary origins and design principles of circadian clocks, but the computational tools and programs to be developed may also be applied to stem cell regulation and other biological systems. There will also be opportunity to do detailed, data-driven modelling of circadian clocks in plants.
The position is open to students of all nationalities who, at the time of starting the scholarship, have completed courses equivalent to at least 240 credits, of which 60 must be at advanced (MSc) level in physics, bioinformatics or computational biology, or who in other ways obtained the equivalent qualifications. In case of uncertainty concerning the applicant’s eligibility, it is advisable to contact the department for clarification.
