Multiple postdoctoral positions funded by the NIH are available immediately at the Das Lab at the Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine at The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital (https://www.nationwidechildrens.org/find-a-doctor/profiles/jayajit-das).
We are seeking outstanding candidates who are interested in applying computational/mathematical methods to solve cutting-edge problems in immunology and cancer immunotherapy. The fellows are expected to work closely with our experimental collaborators and analyze single cell mass cytometry(CyTOF) data, confocal imaging data, and develop data-driven and mechanistic models. Highly motivated and career oriented applicants with expertise in statistical physics, inference methods, optimization techniques, topological data analysis, agent based models, field theoretic methods, and evolutionary dynamics are particularly encouraged to apply. No previous background in immunology is required however the fellow is expected to be interested in learning the relevant immunology and communicate with our collaborators. The fellow also is required to know to code in Python/R/C/C++. The positions are available initially for one year and can be potentially extended. More details about the lab can be found at, http://www.nationwidechildrens.org/jayajit-das. Recent publications from the group can be found at, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=jayajit+das .
Das lab has access to a state of the art computer cluster over 120 INTEL processors. Resources at the Ohio State University campus and Ohio Supercomputer Center are also available. The position will be for one year and can be potentially renewed. Interested candidates should email a brief cover letter stating your interest in our lab, a short CV and names and contact information of three referees to, Jayajit Das, Associate Professor, Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine, The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Department of Pediatrics, Biophysics Program, The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH.
