The Boston University Pulmonary Center, Bosmann Lab is recruiting a Bioinformatician for projects on the molecular immune response to infections (transcriptomics, proteomics, AI).
Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), pneumonia and sepsis are life-threatening complications of microbial infections with profound disturbances of the immune system. In the current absence of definitive treatment options, ARDS and sepsis represent an enormous problem for health systems worldwide. Our laboratory is dedicated to obtain a better mechanistic understanding of the molecular pathogenesis of bacterial, viral and parasitic infections (BSL1-3, including COVID-19) towards the evaluation of new therapeutic targets. Please see our recent publication in Nature Communications. 2020 Aug 12;11(1):4035 . We are especially interested in novel genes for which several genetically engineered mouse strains were generated in our laboratory.
We are looking for a highly motivated Postdoctoral Fellow with outstanding career potential to promote our experimental and translational research with an expertise in Bioinformatics/Biostatistics. The projects will involve the design and analysis of transcriptomics (bulk RNA-Seq, scRNA-Seq), proteogenomics (TOTAL-Seq), (phospho-)proteomics, protein interactions and protein structure, CRISPR screens and whole genome analysis. The work will include literature searches, preparation of figures and writing of manuscripts.
The Postdoctoral Fellow will have opportunities in collaborating with our interdisciplinary team as well as conducting independent projects. New graduates and experienced researchers with a strong record of publications are welcome to apply. A PhD or equivalent degree in a relevant field is required. The ability in initiating, conducting, evaluating and reporting of research studies is essential. T32 programs are available for outstanding candidates holding a Green Card or US Citizenship.
