A Long Term Marie Curie Research Fellowship in Environmental Health sciences at German Research Center for Environmental Health has been announced by the Institute of Bioinformatics and Systems Biology, Munich.

The primary objective of this ITN is to contribute to the education of a new generation of scientists, environmental chemoinformaticans, who will receive advanced training in both environmental and computational methods. To achieve this goal the ITN will train the fellows using expertise and knowledge of its partners in various complementary computational and experimental areas of environmental sciences. The additional training will also be offered by means of Winter and Summer Schools and will include both theoretical and practical courses.
Given the potentially great business impact of evaluating more than 120,000 industrial chemicals in the European market within the next decade, the fellows of this network may have a significant economic dimension with regard to the hazard evaluation of chemicals in Europe.

The candidate should have a Master Degree or equivalent in Computer science or Chemistry. For this position strong programming skills in Java or/and C++ are expected. The students should be able to implement & develop new chemoinformatics algorithms (calculation of descriptors, machine learning algorithms, etc.). Background in chemistry or bioinformatics, informatics, computer sciences is required.

For more details contact Dr. I.V. Tetko, itetko@vcclab.org
