[PVS] Two PostDoc Positions in Lisbon (Comp Sci and Comp Bio)

The Center of Informatics and Information Technology (CITI) at the
Faculty of Sciences and Technology, New University of Lisbon (FCT/UNL)
is seeking candidates for two (2) post-doctoral positions. Important
note: these are 4-5 year work contracts, not just fellowships, see
below. The positions are being opened in the context of the BIOINFO
FCT/UNL project, involving several research units at FCT/UNL.

*** DEADLINE 9 ABRIL 08 ****


(C2007-418-CITI-1b Position A)

A post-doctoral researcher interested
in the development of computational formalisms and techniques to model
and analyze biological phenomena.
The ideal candidate should have a Ph.D. in computer science or a
related area, preferably with a background in formal models of
computation (e.g., process-calculi, model-checking), and interest in
applications to biology, preferably from the viewpoint of systems
biology. We may consider candidates with a Ph.D. in another subject
areas, provided that they may demonstrate a strong knowledge and
interest in (systems) biology and solid skills in computer science.

(C2007-418-CITI-1b Position B)

A post-doctoral researcher interested
in the design and analysis of algorithms for the simulation of complex
biological systems, involving the use of parallelism, concurrency, and
probabilistic non-determinism, or in the design and analysis of
algorithms for storing and searching in large scale data sets.
The ideal candidate should have a Ph.D. in computer science with a
background in some of the following: design and analysis of parallel
algorithms, data structures, concurrent programming.


The work environment for both positions will be the Programming
Languages  and the Parallel Processing Research Streams of the CITI.
More information about the research environment and its members may
be found at the CITI website: citi.di.fct.unl.pt.

Monthly salary is in the range of 2100 Euro/month (after taxes) ,14
Months/Year, plus the social benefits established by the portuguese

The positions are funded by the "Commitment with Science" program,
launched by the Portuguese National Foundation for Science and
Technology. The program aims to provide fixed duration work contracts
between the researchers and the host institution.  More info at

A preference will be given to candidates with at least 3 years of post
doctoral research experience.
