Seeking Computational Postdoctoral Fellow

What would I do?

Develop your independent research career by deriving, simulating, and analyzing computational models of oxytocin-oxytocin receptor signaling (GPCR). Our lab is highly collaborative and highly prolific, so you work with a dynamic research team, present at relevant conferences, and author manuscripts covering your findings, your perspectives, and those from your lab collaborations.  

Why is this important? 

Oxytocin, the most commonly used drug in obstetrics, is administered to an estimated two million women in the U.S each year for labor induction and augmentation. A significant challenge for providers is they cannot predict how, or even whether, an individual will respond to a given oxytocin dose. The purpose of these studies is to biologically, quantitatively, and computationally assess genetic variants in the oxytocin receptor and assess their function and expression.

Am I the right fit?

  • Ph.D. in a quantitative field such as: Bioengineering/Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Computer Science/Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Biophysics, or a related area before the date of joining.
  • At least 2 years of experience in the following areas:
    • Protein Signaling
    • Mathematics/Statistics
    • Programming Languages (examples include but are not limited to SBML, Matlab, Python, etc.)
  • Cultural competence
  • Aspiration to establish an independent scientific career
