PhD Position in Mathematical Modelling for Cancer Research - basque center for applied mathematics

Tracking development of resistance to anti-cancer therapy through mathematical modeling: The goal of the project is to derive an efficient mathematical approach for tracking development of resistance to anti-cancer therapy using genomic information. The proposed project includes statistical analysis of the available real data; building a predictive model and implementing it in the in-house software package; simulations and post-processing of the simulation data. The work will be done in close collaboration with mathematicians at BCAM http://www.bcamath.org/en/research/lines/MSLMS and biologists at CIC bioGUNE https://www.cicbiogune.es/research/groups/molecular.

Keywords:
Machine Learning, Computational Statistics, Bayesian Inference, Enhanced Sampling, Markov Chain Monte Carlo, Hamiltonian Monte Carlo, cancer, resistance to therapy.
