Institute for Complex Molecular Systems
The Institute for Complex Molecular Systems (ICMS) is an interdisciplinary institute at the TU/e which brings excellent researchers from different areas together to promote cross-breeding of ideas across disciplines in the departments Biomedical Engineering, Applied Physics, Chemical Engineering and Chemistry, Mathematics and Computer Science, and Mechanical Engineering. The institute aims to create and study biologically relevant functional structures with the ultimate goal of understanding the complexity of life. The new faculty member will be part of the Grip of Complexity program which focuses on fundamental research that combines experiments and data analysis with mathematical modeling, analysis and control.
Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is ranked as one of the most innovative universities located in the heart of the high-tech industry in the Netherlands, the Brainport region. The unique positioning in one of Europe’s leading tech regions also means excellent job opportunities for spouses. TU/e actively facilitates career opportunities for partners of successful candidates. Eindhoven is the fifth largest city in the Netherlands, and including suburbs, it has about 420,000 inhabitants. Our training and research programs are highly regarded, and we foster close relationships with companies, organizations, and research institutes in the Brainport region and beyond. Fundamental and applied research are equally valued here. The high rank of the TU/e is due to the impact of its scientific research and also to its scientific copublications with industry. TU/e is a social and inspiring university with a vibrant culture. Surrounded by people who share your scientific ambitions, we translate our basic research into meaningful solutions. The TU/e currently has nine departments, with over 11,000 students in total.
What we are looking for: We seek to appoint a scientist or engineer who is passionate about research as well as teaching. We are looking for a creative and pro-active team player to establish a complementary research line.
Artificial Intelligence assisted Synthetic Biology
Synthetic biology is the application of engineering principles to the design and implementation of biological systems. Synthetic biology holds the potential for revolutionary advances in medicine, materials and environmental remediation. However, the number of interactions in biological systems makes manual low-level design unmanageable. In recent years, the integration of synthetic biology and artificial intelligence has shown potential to improve the design and construction of biological systems by employing data-driven approaches. The person in this Assistant Professor position will employ machine learning approaches that integrate the experimental and computational design of of new biological molecules and cellular systems with unprecedented new functions. The new faculty member will be expected to develop a strong, internationally recognized program that integrates AI and synthetic biology. Examples of relevant research topics include, but are not limited to: i) Machine learning assisted computational protein design and protein engineering, ii) Machine learning assisted design of novel cellular functions and iii) the use of combined high-throughput and deep learning approaches to interrogate regulatory design principles.
Irène Curie Fellowship: The program is aimed to attract talented women who pursue an academic career in our university.
