Postdoctoral Research Associate, Computational Biology The Karlsson Lab in the Program in Bioinformatics and Integrative Biology, University of Massachusetts Medical School seeks a computational postdoctoral associate to work with us on a new NSF-funded project to discover the genomic basis of cellular robustness in organisms with flexible homeostasis. Our project is investigating epigenetic responses in cells of species that tolerate reduced blood oxygen during deep diving, elevated blood glucose during frugivory, and circadian and seasonal shifts in body temperature.  The ideal candidate will be experienced in computational biology, statistical inference, R, and command-line coding. The post doc will collaborate with scientists at UMass Medical School, Broad Institute, University of Minnesota, and University of Nevada to develop integrated computational analysis of genomic, epigenomic, transcriptomic and cell-morphology data from cells cultured under conditions that model variation in an organism's internal milieu. The post doc will also have the opportunity to contribute to outreach programs that engage middle school students to develop their skills in coding and experimental design. TO APPLY: For further information, please send cover letter, current CV and the names and contact information of three references to: Elinor Karlsson, Associate Professor at Elinor.Karlsson@umassmed.edu

Post-Doctoral Fellowship Applied Immunology and Translational Science Responsibilities:   The Moormann lab studies human immunity against infectious diseases and infection-associated cancers. Our basic immunology approach applies knowledge of immune mechanisms in order to further our understanding of how Plasmodium falciparum malaria and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) co-infections in children promote immunopathology and endemic Burkitt lymphoma (eBL) tumorigenesis.   Taking the lead on NIH-funded projects that interrogate human T cell immunity within the context of epidemiologic studies, in vitro assays and humanized mouse models. Designing and carrying out experiments to explore one or more of the following topics: determine the functional role of unconventional CD8 T cell subsets associated with malaria infections in eBL pathogenesis (Falanga, et al., JCIi 2017); determine the expression pattern of immune checkpoint inhibitors and activation markers within the tumor microenvironment and their functional role in tumor maintenance; a new project involves determining the longevity of T cell immunity to SARS-CoV-2 within household clusters. These hypotheses will be tested using by high resolution multiparameter flow cytometry, single cell RNAseq, and in vitro cytotoxicity assays. Humanized mouse model studies are done in collaboration with Drs. Mike Brehm @ UMMS, Lenny Shultz @ Jackson Labs, and Christian Münz @ the University of Zurich.   Expectations also include preparation of oral presentations for program/department research in progress meetings, submission of abstracts for poster and oral presentations at national/international meetings, and oversight of technician and/or student working on related projects. Training environment: Dr. Moormann is a mentor for the Programs to Increase Diversity Among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research (PRIDE) and has collaborations with world renowned scientists at Duke University (Micah Luftig), Brown University (Jeff Bailey), the Kenya Medical Research Institute (John Michael Ong’echa) and the University of Zurich, Switzerland (Christian Münz). These collaborations provide additional support and professional networking for a post-doctoral trainee to flourish if they would like to pursue a career in academics. Find out more about the UMMS research community at http://www.umassmed.edu/research-home/ UMass Medical School is located in Worcester, in the heart of Massachusetts on Lake Quinsigamond. An affordable place to live and commuter distance to western Boston suburbs.   Requirements: - Highly motivated with a PhD in Immunology, Cell or Molecular Biology or related discipline. - Demonstrated interest in human immunology, B and T cell immunity to infectious diseases - Experience or strong interest in the emerging trends in computational analyzes such as FlowJo, SPICE, and OMIQ platform including FlowSOM, UMAP, tools. Ability to learn/ work with R. - Experience in the following techniques prioritized: multi-parameter flow cytometry, in vitro cytotoxicity assays, handling/injecting/genotyping mice, preparation of tissues for histology, single cell RNA sequencing. - Experience with mouse models or willingness to learn techniques to do subcutaneous injections, bleed mice and measure tumors weekly. - Willing to work in laboratory in Kenya (for ~ 3-4 weeks per year) to optimize sample collections from study participants for immunologic and single cell assays. - Enjoys training students, good written and oral communication skills, self-motivated and organized, willing to contribute to other team-science collaborative projects.   To apply for this position: Send your CV and the contact information for three references to Dr. Ann Moormann @ ann.moormann@umassmed.edu
