The junior research group Simulation Experiment Management System (SEMS) is looking for a PhD student. The offered contract is for a 3yrs full time position (TVL-E13), starting from summer 2012. The successful applicant for a PhD position will investigate methods and techniques for model version control. Models are here regarded as XML encodings of computational models of biological systems. Today, version changes on these models are not sufficiently stored, maintained, curated, classified and presented to the users of model databases. This project will enable model version control to ensure improved reusability of models in the computational biology field.
Experience with database systems and version control Experience with XML-data An interest in biological questions Good programming experience (preferred: Java) Good command of English Dedication & enthusiasm Master’s degree or equivalent
