PhD studentship in Imperial College London - Mathematical modelling for inflammatory/infectious diseases

Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London Competitive funding available (home/EU fees + stipend)

We are looking for a prospective PhD student with strong background in computational biology. The candidate should have research experiences in computational biology with strong mathematical skills and good Matlab skills. The Tanaka group develops mathematical models for various biological systems ranging from cellular to behavioural levels and reveals key mechanisms for efficient, flexible and robust biological control across different levels. The students will develop and analyse mathematical models to understand the regulatory mechanisms for epithelium homeostasis and how its dysregulation leads to disease, such as atopic dermatitis and fungal infection, and will design experiments that will be fed back into modelling.
