11 BMS BMS: Werkgelegenheid/career/info Vanwege de huidige grote investeringen in functional genomics van bedrijfsleven en overheid ontstaat er een groot tekort aan mensen met de achtergrond van deze master Informatie: Dr H.S. van Walraven Telephone +31 (0)

12 TopMaster Biomolecular Integration/Systems Biology Enquiries: Prof. Dr. H.V. Westerhoff Telephone A Master’s of the CRbCS Centre for Research on bioComplex Systems Ultrafast space- and time-resolved spectroscopy, single molecule biophysics and biochemistry, chemistry of complex molecules, molecular genetics in living cells, intracellular networks, hierarchical control analysis, Integrative bioinformatics, principles of Systems Biology, entering the living cell, Silicon Cell, Integrative genomics, confocal microscopy, tumor cell biology, medical Systems Biology, signal transduction, nanotechnology, computational biology, ecological control analysis Transnational student projects Career development support International peer group Connected Ph D studentships Nature 427, 568 The real cellThe silicon cell ExperimentsCalculations

13 Topmaster BMI/SB: Aims: become an excellent researcher in the quantitative life sciences understand the physical, chemical and organizational principles underlying the living cell obtain expertise with advanced molecular and cell biological techniques, such as ultrafast space- and time-resolved spectroscopy, single molecule biophysics and biochemistry, chemistry of complex molecules, molecular genetics in living cells, integrative genomics, molecular biology, confocal microscopy, tumor cell biology, nanotechnology

14 TOP-BMI/SB TOP-BMI/SB : Aims continued: obtain expertise in advanced conceptual and modeling methodologies for bioinformation and computing technologies, such as medical Systems Biology, signal transduction, computational biology, ecological control analysis, intracellular networks, hierarchical control analysis, Integrative bioinformatics, principles of Systems Biology, entering the living cell, Silicon Cell obtain insight in the most important biological and biomedical issues, and in how they might be addressed scientifically insight into what systems biology and integrative molecular biophysics may mean for society unique and excellent profile for advanced interdisciplinary research between the physical sciences and the life sciences

15 TOP-BMI/SB TOP-BMI/SB : Curriculum structure (2 year, 120 ECTS credit points ) Portal course14 ECTS 6 obligatory (5 ECTS) courses with each of the CRbCS professors30 ECTS 1 international experts’ lecture course 6 ECTS orientation on future research project (including literature thesis)12 ECTS refereeing of research proposal 3 ECTS 8 months research project in Amsterdam and foreign laboratory40 ECTS scientific article about research project 5 ECTS following and discussing, reporting on scientific seminars 2 ECTS scientific conference (co-organizing, participating, reporting) 3 ECTS preparation for final comprehensive exam 5 ECTS

16 TOP-BMI/SB TOP-BMI/SB Obligatory courses: 1.Portal course: entry course of mathematics and physics for the biologist and biology for the physics/chemistry/mathematics bachelor 2.Ultrafast and time-resolved biospectroscopy 3.Single molecule biophysics and biochemistry (nanobiology) 4.Chemistry of complex biomolecules 5.Molecular genetics in living cells 6.Intracellular networks 7.Integrative bioinformatics 8.Current topics in biomolecular integration and systems biology (international lecturers)

17 TOP-BMI/SB Research projects: One research exchange project in two laboratories (partly in Amsterdam and partly in one of the collaborating International Centers of Excellence), on Biomolecular Integration / Systems Biology Career opportunities: As reported in Nature 427, p. 568 (Feb 2004), there is a surge in Systems Biology research with many new groups being set up world wide. What is needed most is young bright people at the interface between Biology and Physics/Chemistry/Mathematics. The course arranges for Ph D studentships. Enquiries: Prof. Dr. H.V. Westerhoff; ;
