PhD position, Mathematical Sciences

The aim of my work is to describe the biological aspects of aging using mathematical modelling. Therefore, I work in close collaboration with biologists that conducts experiments on baker’s yeast (which is an organism that also undergoes aging in a manner similar to that of human beings!). Subsequently, I use the generated data in order to construct mathematical models of the biological system in question in order to predict future outcomes of new experiments. Eventually, the overall aim is to understand the underlying mechanisms behind the complicated phenomena of aging.
