TranSYS will recruit 15 Early Stage Researchers to highly skilled jobs in the new area of Systems Health developing tools and approaches to exploit large and complex datasets, to advance Precision (Personalised) Medicine in several disease areas.
TranSYS, coordinated by Prof. K Van Steen (KU Leuven), will recruit 15 ESRs (Early Stage Researchers) to highly skilled jobs in the new area of Systems Health developing tools and approaches to exploit large and complex datasets, to advance Precision (Personalised) Medicine in several disease areas. The training programme and experience of different international research environments cuts across traditional data and life sciences silos. The emphasis on translational research will support new collaborations between academics and the pharma and health analytics sectors. Our ESR projects will advance the state of the art on biomarker discovery, improve understanding of disease-specific molecular mechanism and target identification for optimal diagnostics, disease risk and treatment management, refine data generation and their management (including warehousing, disease specific and standardised approaches for data processing, visualisation and model development) leading to improved clinical study design, clinical sampling and more targeted therapeutics. This ETN (European Training Network) will internationalise participants, and leverage EC (European Commission) and industry sponsorship, to structure and expand the unique training programme and advance emerging research areas, combining wet-lab, clinical and Big Data resources with computational and modelling know-how.
To achieve a paradigm shift in research training this ETN brings together international leaders in Preclinical Science & Molecular Medicine, Systems Analytics, and Targeted Therapeutics, from academia and industry. These experts are ideally positioned to develop the proposed training programme and deliver a highly-trained workforce of next generation scientists, with the right mind-set, knowledge and skills, at the interface of Translational and Systems Medicine. The TranSYS training programme is designed to addresses a critical skills gaps that is currently a bottle-neck to advancing Precision Medicine.
We have several PhD research positions available:

TranSYS wishes to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background. Recruitment targets ESR backgrounds in 1) Lifesciences; 2) Engineering sciences and (3) Maths and Computational Modelling. In total 15 early-stage researchers will be recruited that will work at the 13 beneficiaries all across Europe.
We expect that applicants hold a university degree that qualifies them for doctoral studies at their recruiting organization. Solid written and oral communication skills in English are prerequisites of any successful application (typically IELTS min. 7, TOEFL internet-based min. 90 or similar level as proven by other tests). Every applicant can apply for up to three ESR positions (first, second, third choice) from the list above.
At the time of commencement, it is required that the candidate has not been awarded a doctorate degree and is within the first 4 years (full-time equivalent) of her/his research career. Furthermore, the candidate must not have resided or carried out her/his main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the host country for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to her/his recruitment. Short stays, such as holidays, are not taken into account. The candidate is required to spend part of his/her project period at other institutions in the TranSYS consortium on secondments.
