Postdoctoral Research Position in Computational Biology - Single Cell

We are looking for a highly motivated and qualified postdoctoral fellow to join a dynamic and interdisciplinary team. Our long-term goal is to develop systems biology approaches to gain mechanistic insights into development and cancer.

The postdoctoral fellow will develop and apply computational methods for analyzing single-cell gene expression data (including both sequencing and imaging based data types). The objectives are to systematically characterize cellular state heterogeneity dynamics in development and cancer, to investigate cell state-environment interactions, and to study cancer treatment response at the single-cell resolution.

Basic Qualifications

We encourage candidates with diverse background to apply. The applicant may either hold a PhD degree in quantitative science with strong interest to develop computational methods for solving biomedical problems, or hold a PhD/MD degree in biology/medicine with strong interest to develop/apply systems biology approaches. The ideal candidates will have strong programming and communication skills and prior experience in analyzing omic scale data.
