The Opportunity: Do you want to conduct research in computational and systems biology, embedded in one of two world-leading research centres? Do you want to help build algorithms and mathematical models for predicting changes in tissue state from complex multi-modal data, as part of an international collaboration?   

We are seeking two postdoctoral research fellows for an ongoing collaboration between theSchumacher group (Edinburgh) and Sander Lab (Harvard). You should have analytical and computational skills, experience of working with complex datasets and a strong interest in developing quantitatively predictive models of biological systems that connect molecular data to dynamic cell and tissue states in health and disease. One of the fellows will be based at the Centre for Regenerative Medicine, University of Edinburgh, and the other at the Department of Systems Biology, Harvard Medical School.

Key concepts: cell-cell dynamics, cell fate decisions, cell state transitions, spatial transcriptomics, protein mass spectrometry, large scale perturbation-response data, computational cell biology

The project is funded by them Wellcome Leap Delta Tissue Program and part of an international network of 16 technology-oriented investigator teams in multiple countries.

Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant subject or equivalent research experience.

Your skills and attributes for success:

  • Experience in the development of computational or mathematical models of biological systems
  • Competence in scientific computer programming in Python, Julia, or a computer programming language with similar capabilities
  • In-depth knowledge of statistics and statistical methods, including Bayesian statistics and/or machine learning
  • Experience working with single cell “omics” data, multimodal and/or spatial data
  • Experience of collaborating with experimental “wet lab” biologists

Closing date: 10 February 2023
