Apologies if you have received more than one copy: this advert
has been cross-posted to several news-groups !

As C.A. Gilligan is away from Cambridge in the next week or so, please
contact me asap (A. Kleczkowski, ak133@cus.cam.ac.uk) if interested.
More information on our group can be found on WWW:

Note that the Studentship is limited (beyond our control) to UK citizens,
so please check that you qualify before replying, please !

NERC STUDENTSHIP IN MATHEMATICAL BIOLOGY

Applications are invited from Mathematicians, Physicists and Engineers
for a three year studentship in Mathematical Biology, funded by the
Natural Environmental Research Council to work on:

Temporal and spatial models for metapopulation dynamics involving fungal
infection of plants.

The work will involve the construction, analysis and testing of
parsimonious, non-linear models, with spatially varying parameters, that
describe the temporal and spatial dynamics of the spread of infection
within and between sub-populations. The project will build on
contemporary work in this laboratory on epidemic modelling. There will
be an opportunity to develop expertise in a broad array of techniques
including ode, pde, coupled map lattice and probabilistic cellular
automata models. The models will be used to identify strategies for the
control of economically and environmentally important diseases of trees
in woodland ecosystems, together with beneficial (mycorrhizal)
infections in grassland ecosystems. The work will also contribute to
dynamical theory of heterogeneous populations.

The successful candidate will join an active group of approximately 20
modellers, statisticans and experimenters in the Botanical Epidemiology
Laboratory at Cambridge with opportunities for collaborative as well as
individual work. There will also be an opportunity to do a limited
amount of teaching in Mathematical Biology.

Applications should be sent to Dr C.A. Gilligan, (Reader in Mathematical
Biology), Department of Plant Sciences, University of Cambridge, Downing
Street, Cambridge, CB2 3EA, AS SOON AS POSSIBLE Tel: 01223 333904; fax
01223 333953; email cag1@cam.ac.uk. Interested applicants are welcome to
contact Dr Gilligan by telephone or preferably by email.
