Postdoctoral Position: Metabolic Modelling of the TB Bacillus (Ref: 5071) £20,044 - £30,002 per annum
Location: University of Surrey, Guildford UK
Contact: Professor Johnjoe McFadden, j.mcfadden at surrey.ac.uk
 
More details:
The School of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences (SBMS) (www.surrey.ac.uk/sbms) has more

than 1000 students, 220 staff, is highly active in biomedical research and received the highest

possible rating, 5** in the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise.

As part of our planning for RAE 2008, the School's research portfolio now integrates its scientific

and clinical disciplines into cross cutting multi-disciplinary programmes focusing on human health,

disease and treatment. A core technology programme and the key disciplines of Chemical,

Microbial, Nutrition & Food and Integrative Physiological Sciences underpin each theme.

Applicants are invited for a 3 year BBSRC-funded post-doctoral fellow position to develop

and test metabolic models for the tubercle bacillus.

Mycobacterium tuberculosis is responsible for 3 million deaths each year. This project is to use

metabolomic approaches to identify new drug targets, particularly in persistent organisms.

You will construct metabolic models of the TB bacillus and constrain the models with

metabolomic data generated by other team members.

You should have a PhD or MSc in bioinformatics/systems biology and experience of

model building and testing.
