Postdoctoral position at Microsoft Research New England in Cambridge, MA, to work on a joint project with my lab and that of Riccardo Zecchina.
This position represents an exceptional opportunity to develop new algorithms for analysing biological data and to apply these algorithms to develop new therapeutic insights. Deep expertise in computational biology, an excellent publication record and a PhD in a relevant field are required. The position is for a one year with the expectation that it may be extended. The position is based in Cambridge, MA, at Microsoft Research New England, which is located two blocks from my lab.
Research will focus on methods for integrating diverse data such as genomic, proteomic, genetic, epigenetic, molecular profiling and patient data from clinical studies and laboratory models of diseases. The applicant will be expected to work closely with experimentalists in an iterative cycle of model building and hypothesis testing. This unique position affords all the intellectual freedom of academic research with compensation and benefits of a high-tech position in industry.
Please list select "Computational Systems Biology" as your research area, which can be found under the "Select Positions & More" section of the Microsoft Research application.
Postdoctoral, predoctoral, UROP and technical positions available.
We are looking for highly motivated candidates to participate in experimental and
computational projects studying several human diseases using Systems Biology
techniques. We obtain diverse data from ChIP-Seq, transcriptional profiling, reverse
genetics and phospho-proteomics, and analyze these data to identify altered regulatory
and signaling networks. Highly motivated applicants trained in either experimental
or computational methods are welcome to apply.
