Position Description:    

We have openings for postdoc positions in the interdisciplinary Structure of Evolution group at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig, Germany. Our group studies theoretical aspects of evolutionary dynamics from a range of complementary perspectives, including physics-inspired scaling theories, genetic algorithms and their design, and multiplicative stochastic processes.

The ideal candidates will have a strong background in quantitative biology, statistical or condensed-matter physics, or evolutionary computing, and will be bring expertise relevant to the problem of evolutionary predictability: what certain evolutionary outcomes more likely that others, and how can we use data to predict these outcomes?

The position is for 1+1 year and comes with a self-managed allowance for research trips and visitors.

The positions will remain open until filled.

Besides MPI MiS, Leipzig is home to the University of Leipzig (and its strong bioinformatics group), the MPI for Evolutionary Anthropology and the the MPI for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences. Leipzig is considered among the most liveable cities in Germany, with affordable housing, numerous parks and lakes and a lively artistic scene. Berlin is one hour away by train.
