We are changing the practice of science. The role of the PhD student will be to research yeast systems biology. The test system for these methods will be ‘Genesis’, a Robot Scientist designed to transform the practice of yeast (S. cerevisiae) systems biology. A Robot Scientist is an autonomous laboratory automation system that applies artificial intelligence to automate the discovery of scientific knowledge through cycles of experimentation. When complete Genesis will have 10,000 micro-chemostats where the designed experiments will be executed.
To qualify as a PhD student, you must have a master’s level degree corresponding to at least 240 higher education credits in statistics, computer science, or a related numerical subject. You need to have experience with bioinformatics.
