The postdoctoral position is available in our group to research the dynamics of the immune system in health and disease. The successful candidate(s) will develop computational, mathematical, and statistical models and will work in collaboration with leading experimental immunologists and/or clinicians. One area of our research is understanding the development, maintenance, and competitive dynamics of memory T cell subsets, both circulating and tissue-resident. We also study the dynamics of HIV infection in infants, and of influenza infection in mouse models.
A PhD obtained within 5 years of the start date. Formal training in immunology would be an advantage but not required, and training will be provided if necessary. However, a strong interest in immunology and/or disease dynamics is needed. Applications from candidates with experience in epidemiology or theoretical ecology are also welcomed. Preference will be given to those with expertise in dynamic modeling and statistical inference, and those with strong programming skills (e.g. R, Python, Mathematica, Matlab, or C++).
