The Lobo Lab at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (lobolab.umbc.edu) is seeking a postdoctoral researcher in computational biology to join a NIH-funded project in the area of systems biology of development and regeneration.
The project will leverage the planarian worm extraordinary ability to grow, degrow, and regenerate their whole body and organs to discern the mechanisms that control growth, shape, and size regulation. Join our interdisciplinary systems biology team combining surgical and genetic manipulations, molecular assays, machine learning, mathematical modeling, and ontological formalizations to obtain a mechanistic understanding of the genetic pathways that regulate tissue growth dynamics and whole-body scale targeted shapes and sizes.
Successful candidates will have a Ph.D. in computational biology or related field. Experience with mathematical modeling, machine learning, and/or bioinformatics analyses are desirable. Successful candidates will also have a demonstrated record of publications and excellent communication skills.
