A computational biologist is sought to join an interdisciplinary collaborative Horizon 2020 project, entitled “Systems Medicine of Mitochondrial Parkinson’s Disease” (sysmedpd.eu/). The candidate will be responsible for generation and analysis of personalized constraint-based computational models of human metabolism. Specifically, the candidate will integrate an established constraint-based computational model of human dopaminergic neuronal metabolism, with metabolomic, transcriptomic, proteomic and biochemical phenotypic data previously generated on multiple in vitro cultures of monogenic Parkinson’s disease patient-derived cell lines and isogenic controls. The candidate will develop a data-driven, mechanistic computational modelling approach to systematically characterize and biochemically interpret the metabolic consequences of mitochondrial dysfunction in monogenic Parkinson’s disease patients, then predict targets to reduce this dysfunction. Top ranked predictions will subsequently be tested on in vitro and rodent models by experimental collaborators within SysMedPD.
The responsibilities of the position include:
We offer a one-year term position, with the possibility of renewal for up to three more years. Salary range from €2,588 to €4,084 gross per month (pay scale 10 in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities).
Leiden University offers an attractive benefits package with additional holiday (8%) and end-of-year bonuses (8.3 %), training and career development and sabbatical leave. Our individual choices model gives you some freedom to assemble your own set of terms and conditions. For international spouses we have set up a dual career programme. Candidates from outside the Netherlands may be eligible for a substantial tax break. More at https://www.universiteitleiden.nl/en/working-at/job-application-procedure-and-employment-conditions.
