Group Leader Position, Statistical Inverse Problems, Biophysics

Group leader position
Statistical Inverse Problems in Biophysics
at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry
(Code Number 27-13)

The Research Group “Statistical Inverse Problems in Biophysics”
(Max-Planck Fellow Prof. Axel Munk) is looking to fill one group
leader position (up to five years, E 14) at the inter-face of
mathematical statistics, inverse problems and biophysics. A possible
starting date for the position is January, 1st 2014.

The goal of the group is to develop statistical and mathematical
methods for several problems in biophysics. This will be done in close
collaboration with various labs at the Max Planck Institute for
Biophysical Chemistry and the Mathematical Statistics group at the
Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, Georg August University,
Göttingen.  Possible activities range from im-age analysis in
sub-diffraction fluorescence microscopy, the statistical analysis of
NMR spectra, radially under-sampled magnetic resonance tomography to
complexity reduction techniques in modeling protein dynamics. We offer
the possibility of a Habilitation at the faculty of Mathemat-ics and
Computer Science. In addition, the possibility to fill a PhD position
is offered to the successful candidate.

We are looking for talented, self-motivated individuals with a strong
background in statistics or applied mathematics. Good programming
skills and basic knowledge of biophysics is desirable.

The Max Planck Society is trying to increase the percentage of women
on its scientific staff and strongly encourages applications from
qualified women. The Society is also committed to em-ploying more
handicapped individuals and especially encourages them to apply.

Please send your application including a current CV and the names and
contact information of three references in relation to the code number
until November, 17th 2013 to
