Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics (LSI), Princeton University

Princeton, NJ, United States

A Postdoctoral Research Associate or more senior research position in computational biology is available in the Pritykin lab at the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics and the Computer Science Department at Princeton University.

We seek candidates with computational biology, bioinformatics, computer science, machine learning, statistics, data science, applied math and/or other quantitative backgrounds who are enthusiastic about bringing their expertise to addressing fundamental problems in biology and medicine using cutting-edge technologies.

The Pritykin lab (http://pritykinlab.princeton.edu) uses applied statistics, machine learning and efficient algorithms to address fundamental problems in biology and medicine by integrative analysis of multi-dimensional data. We develop and apply computational methods for design and analysis of high-throughput functional genomic assays and perturbations, with a focus on single-cell, spatial and genome editing technologies. For this position, we are seeking candidates interested in applying these technologies to studies of regulatory genomics of cell function and cell-cell interactions, especially in immunology and cancer. A successful candidate will have an opportunity to lead and contribute to a range of exciting collaborative projects, and develop new projects.

PhD in a relevant field is required. Strong track record of productivity is essential. Experience with biological data analysis is a plus but not required. 

Appointments are for one year, with possibility for renewal pending satisfactory performance and continued funding. The position is subject to the University’s background check policy.

Applications must be submitted online at https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/26961. Applications should include a curriculum vitae that includes a list of publications, a brief statement of research interests and goals, and the names and contact information for three references.
