Postdoctoral Fellow in Machine Learning and Design of Biological Systems
Location: Cambridge, Massachusetts
Internal Number: 9085
School: Faculty of Arts and Sciences
Department/Area: Science Division
A postdoctoral position is currently available in the laboratory of Dr. Mor Nitzan at Harvard University's Faculty of Arts and Sciences to study spatial and temporal aspects of interaction patterns in biological systems. We are looking for exceptional candidates with background in machine learning and/or computational biology.
Research will focus on both top-down and bottom-up mapping of local interactions between relatively simple dynamic entities and their emergent complex behavior. We study these questions in various theoretical and biological settings, such as cellular interactions in tissues using single cell sequencing data. The initial appointment period is funded for one year.
Candidates should have a PhD in computer science, physics, bioinformatics or a related field, and an interest in biology.
Previous research experience related to biology is an advantage but not required.
