Open Job Positions on Computational Biomanufacturing for Biofoundries

Looking for a PhD in ML, automation and biotech? Think about our opportunities for industrial synthetic biology driven by machine learning and automation.


A new opportunity to work in Computational Biomanufacturing funded by a research grant in collaboration between the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV) and the Institute for Integrative Systems Biology I2SysBio (CSIC-UV) is opened. The goal is to improve the efficiency of the automated Design-Build-Test-Learn (DBTL) cycle for microbial production processes by using machine learning, predictive modeling and optimal design of experiments  (Otero-Muras et al. Metabolic Engineering, 2021, Tellechea-Luzardo et al. Trends in Biotech, 2022


Candidates are expected to contribute to the development of sustainable solutions for bio-based production of therapeutics, food, nutrition and materials; to contribute to the development of standards for exchange of design information and experimental data in close interaction with experimentalists and the development of predictive models through statisticalmodeling and machine learning.


Candidates will hold a degree in Bioinformatics / Systems Biology / Industrial Engineering / Computer Science / Biomedical Engineering / Synthetic Biology / Biochemistry / Bioengineering / Chemical Engineering (or a related subject area) and willing to learn about postgenomic data analysis, metabolic modelling, statistics, and systems biology.
