Postdoctoral Fellow in Machine Learning and Design of Biological Systems

School Faculty of Arts and Sciences
Department/Area Science Division

A postdoctoral position is currently available in the laboratory of Dr. Mor Nitzan at Harvard University’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences to study spatial and temporal aspects of interaction patterns in biological systems. We are looking for exceptional candidates with background in machine learning and/or computational biology.

Research will focus on both top-down and bottom-up mapping of local interactions between relatively simple dynamic entities and their emergent complex behavior. We study these questions in various theoretical and biological settings, such as cellular interactions in tissues using single cell sequencing data. The initial appointment period is funded for one year.

Basic Qualifications

Candidates should have a PhD in computer science, physics, bioinformatics or a related field, and an interest in biology.

Additional Qualifications

Previous research experience related to biology is an advantage but not required.

Special Instructions

To apply, please send a CV, a statement of research experience and interests (two pages maximum), and the names and contact for three references to mornitzan@fas.harvard.edu.
