Doctorado bioinformático y ecoevolucionario en Almería, España

PhD position in eco-evolutionary bioinformatics (University of Almería and EEZA-CSIC, Almería, Spain) Deadline to accept candidates: November 10th 2019 Are you a recently-graduated computer scientist who happens to be interested in nature, animals, animal behavior, ecology, evolution,
the environment? or specific topics, such as the extinction of the dinosaurs, or how to improve biological pest control?

Then you could be interested in this opportunity to apply for a 4-year
PhD scholarship to work on improving a Next-Generation Individual-Based
model, Weaver, and bring it to the next level: parallel computing. With
parallelization we will be able to scale up simulations to include
larger and more complete ecosystems including up to tens of millions
of individuals.

We seek for a highly motivated computer scientist from EU countries,
and will only consider applicants having completed (or currently on their
last year of) a MS in Computer Sciences, preferably on parallel computing
or similar disciplines. The candidate should have finished his/her
undergrad after January 1st 2016, and hold top academic qualifications
(i.e., within the top 10% of his/her undergraduate graduating class).

Annual salary (before taxes): 1st year: 16,027.58€; 2nd year:
17,279.5€; 3rd year: 21,599.48€; 4th year (having defended the
PhD): 28,640.91€; 4th year (without PhD defense): 21,599.48€.
