Machine learning of cell surface receptor-actin cortex crosstalk

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Khuloud Jaqaman, Ph.D., in the Department of Biophysics and the Lyda Hill Department of Bioinformatics at UT Southwestern Medical Center. The project will be focused on developing machine learning and related approaches to investigate how the actin cortex regulates cell surface receptor dynamics and clustering, and consequently signaling, a process that is critical in normal physiology and in disease.

The Jaqaman lab ( consists of computational and experimental students and postdoctoral fellows, and has several exciting projects related to the organization and dynamics of signaling proteins in the plasma membrane.

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in computer/computational science, statistics, biomedical engineering, biophysics or a related field, with experience in computational data analysis and machine learning. Publications in peer-reviewed journals are recommended.
