GENERAL SUMMARY OF POSITION:
We are seeking a highly motivated, creative and independent individual to join our program to understand host-virus interactions and how these interactions the severity of infection. In a collaboration between the Finberg laboratory (Infectious disease [URL]) and the Garber laboratory (Computational Biology, http://garberlab.umassmed.edu) we are pursuing a modeling, data centric, approach that integrates human single cell RNA-Seq data together with in-vitro cellular models. In this unique set-up, hypothesis arising from patient samples will be tested on in-vitro models, thus providing a unique opportunity for building, testing and refining computational models.
The person hired for this position will lead the data analysis and modeling efforts and will be intimately involved in designing experiments to test model predictions. As such the ideal candidate will be intimately familiar with machine learning, sequencing technologies and have a working knowledge of molecular biology.
Key responsibilities include:
