Dear all,

The "SmartNets <http://www.smartnets-etn.eu>" consortium is looking for a
total 13 PhD students studying network computation.

The objective of SmartNets is to provide high-level training into the
functioning of  biological networks to a new generation of early stage
researchers, to provide them with the skills necessary for thriving careers
in a burgeoning area that underpins innovative technological development
across a range of diverse disciplines. This goal will be achieved by a
unique combination of “hands-on” research training, non-academic placements
(industrial and non-profit organisations) and courses and workshops on both
scientific and complementary -so-called “soft”- skills facilitated by the
academic-non-academic composition of the consortium. SmartNets brings
together neuroscientists, behavioural and cognitive scientists, physicists,
computer scientists, and non-profit stakeholders in order to train the next
generation of  data scientists that will: 1) develop a fundamental
understanding of the relationship between structure and function in
biological networks and 2) translate this knowledge into novel
technological solutions. The PhD students will develop a unique
interdisciplinary set of skills that will make them capable of analyzing
networks at many levels and for many systems.

There are positions across 5 countries and institutes (Fleur Zeldenrust,
Radboud University, the Netherlands; Tansu Celikel, Radboud University the
Netherlands; Julijana Gjorgjieva, Max Planck Gesellschaft, Germany; Iain
Couzin, Max Planck Gesellschaft, Germany; Yiota Poirazi, Foundation for
Research and Technology, Greece; Georges Debrégeas, Sorbonne Université,
France; Joni Dambre, Ghent University, Belgium).
