The University of Edinburgh is proud to launch the Centre for Systems Biology at Edinburgh (CSBE), a unique opportunity presented by a £17M investment from BBSRC, EPSRC and the University. CSBE draws expertise from 11 internationally-leading Systems Biology research groups to understand the general principles underlying dynamic biological processes, initially in the areas of RNA metabolism in yeast, circadian clocks in plants and interferon signalling in immunity. We now seek 18 outstanding individuals with a passion for interdisciplinary research, to integrate new biological data and mathematical models into large-scale informatics infrastructure, in the following roles: 

Centre Manager £41,544-£46,758 (Ref: 3007427NA) The Centre Manager has a strategic role in coordinating experimental with theoretical research; implementing long-term research and funding strategy; and managing outreach, knowledge transfer and commercialisation.
Project Manager for Theory £32,795-£39,160 (Ref: 3007435NA) This Project Manager will coordinate theoretical research across the CSBE labs, manage software development and informatics services. 

Project Manager for Experiments £32,795-£39,160 (Ref: 3007432NA) This Project Manager will coordinate experimental research across the CSBE labs, manage core experimental facilities and develop outreach activity. 

Senior Research Fellow £41,544-£46,758 (Ref: 3007438NA) The Research Fellow will guide the core experimental facility to measure kinetic parameter values, and establish an independent programme of technological research. An initial focus will be on mass spectroscopy. 

Research Technician £18,157-£21,050 (Ref: 3007437NA) The Technician will support quantitative, robotised molecular assays in the core experimental facility. 

Three Software Developers £26,666-£31,840 (Ref: 3007409NA) The Developers will implement a Systems Biology Software Infrastructure, linking experimental data repositories directly to models, model-building and analysis tools. 

Ten Post-Doctoral Research Associates £26,666-£31,840 (or exceptionally £32,795-£39,160 for positions 3007425NA and 3007405NA) Protein mass spectroscopy for RNA metabolism in budding yeast (PI: J.Beggs/D.Tollervery; Ref: 3007430NA). Biochemistry and molecular genetics of the circadian clock in Arabidopsis (PI: A. Millar; 2 positions; Ref: 3007418NA). Mathematical modelling and analysis of rhythmic gene circuits (PI: A. Millar; 2 positions; Ref: 3007423NA.). Software tools for graphical design of biological models (PI: I. Goryanin; Ref: 3007425NA). Mathematical analysis of high-dimensional dynamic networks using high-performance computing (PI: I. Goryanin; Ref: 3007405NA). Machine learning methods for network inference from molecular data (D. Husmeier; Ref: 3007407NA). Process algebra models of biochemical pathways and associated quantitative analysis with development of experimental software tools. (PI: J. Hillston; Ref: 3007424NA). Petri-net based models and languages for systems biology (PI: G. Plotkin; Ref: 3007439NA).
