Job Opening 8

Postdoctoral Research Fellow @ Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics

Employer: Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics

Key Words: complex networks, biological systems, human microbiome

Location: Pohang, Republic of Korea

Period: initially one year; after one year, usually renewable based on a mutual agreement

Start Date: as soon as possible

Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Systems Biology.

The Junior Research Group (JRG), “Emergent Dynamics of Complex Living Systems” led by Dr. Pan-Jun Kim at the Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP, in Korea, invites applications for postdoctoral positions in the area of computational and systems biology. JRGs at the APCTP are supported by the Korean government and POSTECH.

The research will focus on the computational study of molecular ecological networks of microbial communities inside the human gut, based on metagenomic data. The research aims at understanding how complex microbial ecology inside the human body affects the human health and disease, through taking a community modeling approach for the microbial network dynamics.

Screening of applications begins immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. To apply, please e-mail curriculum vitae along with a brief statement of your research interests to Pan-Jun Kim at, and arrange to have three letters of recommendation e-mailed to the same address.


The ideal candidates are expected to have experience/interest in the areas of systems biology, bioinformatics, data analysis, and/or complex networks. Previous experience with nonlinear dynamics, and/or computer simulation would be a plus.

Application Deadline: Until filled
