Funded PhD position in software engineering for computational biology at The Francis Crick Institute and King's College London

by Steffen Zschaler, Oct. 8, 2018

We are inviting applications for a funded PhD position at The Francis Crick Institute and King's College London. The research will be undertaken at the interface between software engineering (specifically, model-driven engineering and language engineering) and computational biology, developing a range of domain-specific modelling languages for building simulations of cell behaviour and interaction.

We are inviting applications for a funded PhD position at The Francis Crick Institute and King's College London. The research will be undertaken at the interface between software engineering (specifically, model-driven engineering and language engineering) and computational biology, developing a range of domain-specific modelling languages for building simulations of cell behaviour and interaction. The PhD project will be jointly supervised by Dr Katie Bentley, group leader of the Cellular Adaptive Behaviour Lab at the Francis Crick Institute, and Dr Steffen Zschaler, senior lecturer in software engineering at King's College London.

The successful candidate will have a strong background in computing, in particular software engineering. Previous experience with language engineering and language workbenches would be helpful, as would a strong working knowledge of C++ or Java. Candidates will also need an interest in biology. Any background knowledge in cell biology would be a bonus.
