Computational Postdoctoral Researcher in Systems Biology

A full-time postdoctoral position is available in the Altschuler & Wu laboratory, Green Center for Systems Biology and the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.

The successful candidate will investigate cellular responses to perturbations through a combined approach of microscopy-based assays, image processing, statistical analysis, and mathematical modeling. The lab is highly multi-disciplinary and the successful candidate will have the opportunity to work side-by-side with biologists at the bench.

Applicants should have a strong quantitative background, with a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Statistics, Mathematics, Physics or other related fields.

Applicants should submit a brief one-page description of research interests and plans, a resume, and contact information for three references to Dr. Altschuler via e-mail ( Steven.Altschuler@UTSouthwestern.edu).

Experimental Postdoctoral Researcher in Systems Biology

Full-time postdoctoral positions are available in the Altschuler & Wu laboratories.

The Altschuler and Wu labs are focused on understanding basic principles underlying signal transduction in cells. How does information propagate through biological networks? How do biological networks filter signal from noise to give rise to precise spatial-temporal behaviors within a single cell? How do complex distributions of single cell behaviors arise within a population, and how do these distributions change in response to perturbations? To investigate these questions, we make use of both experimental and theoretical approaches, including single-cell, high-content microscopy assays, image processing, statistical analysis, and mathematical modeling. Our labs are highly multi-disciplinary, and postdocs with diverse backgrounds will have the opportunity to work side-by-side.

Applicants should have a strong interest in quantitative biology, with a Ph.D. in biology, biochemistry, biophysics or related areas. Applicants should submit a brief one-page description of research interests and plans, a resume, and contact information for three references to Dr. Altschuler (Steven.Altschuler@UTSouthwestern.edu)

Experimental Postdoctoral Researcher in Systems Pharmacology

A full-time cancer biology postdoctoral position is available in the Altschuler & Wu laboratory.

The successful candidate will investigate new high-throughput approaches for identifying pre-therepeutic compounds. The lab is highly multi-disciplinary and the successful candidate will have the opportunity to work side-by-side with computational biologists.

Applicants should have (or be about to receive) a Ph.D. in the areas of biology, biochemistry, chemistry, or other closely related fields. Candidates with a strong background in drug discovery, immunofluorescence microscopy, high-throghput assays, and/or cell signaling are preferred.

Applicants should submit a brief one-page description of research interests and plans, a resume, and contact information for three references to Dr. Lani Wu (Lani.Wu@utsouthwestern.edu)

Experimental Postdoctoral Researcher in Cancer Biology

A full-time cancer biology postdoctoral position is available in the Altschuler & Wu laboratory.

The successful candidate will investigate the evolution of drug resistance in cancer. The candidate will develop experimental systems for studying how resistance to targeted therapies emerge and evolve in time.

Applicants should have (or be about to receive) a Ph.D. in the areas of biology, molecular biology, evolutionary biology, genetics, cancer, or other related fields. Candidates with a strong background in cancer biology, next generation sequencing, evolution experiments, high-throughput immunofluorescence microscopy, and/or cell signaling are preferred.

Applicants should submit a brief one-page description of research interests and plans, a resume, and contact information for three references to Dr. Lani Wu (Lani.Wu@utsouthwestern.edu)
