Postdoc @ KTH in Modelling and Control for Advanced Bioproduction

Prof. Elling W. Jacobsen at KTW (The Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden) has announced a postdoc in the modeling and control of biological systems. The application deadline is March 15. The position is for one year but has the potential to be extended. A full description is available here. Prof. Jacobsen writes:

The open postdoc position is associated with the EU project iConsensus, focusing on developing an integrated control and sensing platform for production of biopharmaceuticals, vaccines and advanced therapies. The project involves leading European universities and pharmaceutical companies and is led by KTH. The position will also be associated with the Centre for Advanced Bioproduction AdBioPro, led by KTH and in collaboration with Lund University and Karolinska University Hospital as well as seven Swedish companies in the Biopharmaceutical/Biotech industry.

The postdoc project concerns model based optimization and control of culture media and processes. It involves developing methodologies for metabolic network modeling, and use of the models for optimization and control of cell metabolism. The succesful candidate will work in close collaboration with the School of Biotechnology at KTH, world leading in advanced bioproduction and hosting extensive laboratory facilities, and our industrial partners, with the ultimate objective to verify methodologies in an industrial setting.

We are looking for candidates with a strong background in at least one of the areas reaction network modeling and model based control, preferrably with experience from applications related to bioproduction.
