A Postdoctoral Research Associate or more senior research position in computational biology is available in the Pritykin and Adamson Labs at the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics and Computer Science and Molecular Biology Departments at Princeton University. The successful applicant will be appointed through the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics. We seek candidates interested in developing and applying computational methods for design and analysis of large-scale genome perturbation experiments. Successful candidates should have computational biology, bioinformatics, computer science, machine learning, statistics, data science, applied math, and/or other quantitative backgrounds and be enthusiastic about bringing their expertise to address fundamental and applied problems in the field of genome editing. The Adamson lab is principally a genomics lab focused on studying mechanisms of genome stability maintenance. For our work, we use and develop cutting-edge experimental technologies, including genome editing tools and approaches for performing genetic screens and single-cell RNA-sequencing. A major topic of interest in the lab is genome editing. We seek to understand how modern genome editing tools interact with 'host' cell mechanisms. Please visit our website (https://www.badamsonlab.com) to learn more about our research. The Pritykin lab (http://pritykinlab.princeton.edu) uses applied statistics, machine learning and efficient algorithms to address fundamental problems in biology and medicine by integrative analysis of multi-dimensional data. We develop and apply computational methods for design and analysis of high-throughput functional genomic assays and perturbations, with a focus on multi-modal single-cell, spatial and genome editing technologies, with applications to studies of regulatory genomics, immunology and cancer. PhD in a relevant field is required. Strong track record of productivity is essential. Experience with biological data analysis and/or wet lab experience is a plus but not required. Appointments are for one year, with possibility for renewal pending satisfactory performance and continued funding. The position is subject to the University's background check policy. Applications must be submitted online at https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/26908. Applications should include a curriculum vitae that includes a list of publications, a brief statement of research interests and goals, and the names and contact information for three references. Please email Dr. Britt Adamson at email@example.com or Dr. Yuri Pritykin at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the position.
Princeton University is a vibrant community of scholarship and learning that stands in the nation's service and in the service of all nations. Chartered in 1746, Princeton is the fourth-oldest college in the United States. Princeton is an independent, coeducational, nondenominational institution that provides undergraduate and graduate instruction in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and engineering.As a world-renowned research university, Princeton seeks to achieve the highest levels of distinction in the discovery and transmission of knowledge and understanding. At the same time, Princeton is distinctive among research universities in its commitment to undergraduate teaching.Today, more than 1,100 faculty members instruct approximately 5,200 undergraduate students and 2,600 graduate students. The University's generous financial aid program ensures that talented students from all economic backgrounds can afford a Princeton education.
