  • Postdoctoral Researcher - Quantitative Systems Pharmacology (100%) - Group Prof. Zampieri, ETH Zurich

A postdoc position is available at the Institute of Molecular Systems Biology, ETH Zurich, in the group of Mattia Zampieri (https://imsb.ethz.ch/research/zampieri-group.html ), within a larger study funded by the  Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) to establish NCCR “AntiResist” with the goal of developing new strategies in the fight against antibiotic-resistant pathogens. The project aims at developing entirely new strategies to predict antimicrobial efficacy of small molecules in diverse nutritional and growth conditions with the aid of computational models and high-throughput metabolomics.
I am seeking an excellent and highly motivated candidate with experience in experimental
microbiology and computational biology
. Candidates should have a PhD with a strong background in experimental microbiology and systems biology. Some experience in programming (e.g. Matlab, R or Python) and statistical analysis of large data is expected. Good communication skills in oral and written English are essential.
The successful applicant will be working in an interdisciplinary team of researchers using computational models and high-throughput metabolomics to understand the role of metabolism in mediating drug response and develop new paradigms in antibiotic discovery.
We offer an outstanding and highly interactive scientific environment, state-of-the-art technology
platforms, highly competitive salaries, and opportunities for advanced training and career development. The position is available immediately and is funded for four years.
Please send your application (cover letter, CV, diplomas and contact information of 2-3 referees)
to Dr. Mattia Zampieri, ETH Zurich, Otto-Stern-Weg 3, 8093 Zürich, Switzerland, email.
