The ideal candidate is going to have a strong engineering background, with a special regards to Biomedical Engineering, he/she shall have strong and proven skills in biological systems modeling and translation of models in computationals tools. Due to the international nature of the research (collaboration with the John Innes Centre of Norwich-UK) it is required a very good knowledge of the English language (both written and spoken).
