Andersen Lab

Experimental Biology:
We are looking for a (primarily) experimental postdoc to lead new exciting systems biology projects focused on identifying host and virus genetic factors determining outcomes from Lassa and Ebola virus infections.

Requirements include:

  • Ph.D. in molecular biology, virology, RNA biology, or similar is required.
  • Experience with next-generation sequencing datasets highly desired.
  • Experience with computational data analysis using ‘Big Data’, including knowledge of statistical concepts is a plus.
  • Programming skills in scripting languages such as Python/Perl, and analysis tools like MATLAB/R not required, but would be a plus.
  • Strong interpersonal skills and the ability to work with and mentor junior scientists and students.

Interested candidates should submit their CV and cover letter to [email protected]. Please have at least three referees email their references directly to [email protected]. Read more here.

Computational Biology:
We are looking for a computational postdoc to lead new projects developing and using data mining, machine learning and Bayesian phylodynamic approaches to investigate the spread and evolution of emerging viruses, including Lassa and Ebola.

Requirements include:

  • Ph.D. in computational biology, computer science, mathematics, physics, or equivalent.
  • Programming skills in two or more languages (C++/Java/Python/R/MATLAB).
  • Experience with data mining and machine learning is highly desired.
  • Data visualization in Python/R/d3js is a plus.
  • Experience with HPC preferred.
  • Deep knowledge of Bayesian statistics, in particular Bayesian phylogenetics is a big plus.
  • Strong interpersonal skills and the ability to work with and mentor junior scientists and students.

Interested candidates should submit their CV with links to code repositories (Github/Bitbucket) or online demos and cover letter to [email protected]. Please have at least three referees email their references directly to [email protected]. Read more here.

Suchard Lab

Data Science and Computational Phylogenetics:
We are looking for a quantitative postdoc to lead novel statistical development projects focused on large-scale survival analyses incorporating phylogenetic information from Lassa and Ebola virus infections. This position is part of a larger initiative with the recently established Center for Viral Systems Biology.
Requirements include:

  • Ph.D. in biostatistics, statistics, computer science, computational biology or equivalent.
  • Computational statistics skills, experience with high-performance computing preferred.
  • Knowledge of Bayesian statistics.
  • Experience with survival analysis and with genetics / genomics.
  • Interest in phylogenetics.
  • Strong interpersonal skills and the ability to work with and mentor junior scientists and students.

Interested candidates should submit a CV with links to code repositories and papers and a cover letter to [email protected]. Please have at least three referees email references directly to [email protected].
