Postdoctoral Fellow Positions in Experimental Systems Biology, Immunology and Genomics Program in Systems Immunology and Infectious Disease Modeling National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) National Institutes of Health (NIH), Bethesda, MD We are seeking experimental fellows in a new research group focusing on systems biology and genomics, with particular emphasis on mammalian immune cells and systems and their interaction with the environment (e.g., commensal microbes). The group is part of a new department in the Division of Intramural Research of NIAID/NIH focusing on systems immunology. Other groups in the department focus on proteomics, cell and molecular biology, immunology, and computational simulations of cellular systems, thus offering rich opportunities for close collaborations on integrative approaches to biomedicine. The lab will employ a combination of computational and experimental approaches, such as deep sequencing, computational network reconstruction, gene expression profiling (e.g., RNA-Seq and real-time PCRs), comparative sequence analysis, flow cytometry, and statistical genetics. Ample collaborative opportunities will be available for experimental and computational fellows to work closely with each other, thus offering training opportunities in computational biology and bioinformatics for experimental fellows. Initial research projects could include understanding the roles of microRNAs in immune networks, dissecting host-microbiota interactions, and studying the function of cellular heterogeneity and underlying regulatory networks. The group receives excellent infrastructure support, including a dedicated Illumina Hiseq2000 sequencer; access to cluster computing, databases, and core facilities for gene expression profiling, imaging, and advanced technologies such as RNAi and multi-parameter flow cytometry; administrative and travel support will be provided. The NIH campus offers an intellectually stimulating and collegial environment with 1200+ research laboratories and frequent seminars given by world-renown researchers, as well as access to state-of-the-art research tools. Interested candidates can contact Dr. John Tsang (email@example.com) for further information. Minimum requirements: Ph.D. (or students expecting their Ph.D. shortly) in life sciences (e.g., immunology, experimental genomics, microbial genomics/genetics, molecular biology, genetics, cell biology) with a strong desire to conduct and publish world-class research at the cutting edge of systems biology, genomics and immunology; experience with mice and/or cell culture is a big plus; experience with bioinformatics and computational approaches is a plus but not required; excellent oral and written communication skills. To apply, please submit cover letter, CV and names of three references to Dr. Tsang via email.
