A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. David Serre at the Institute for Genome Sciences at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Our laboratory is interested in developing and applying novel genomic approaches to better understand the biology of malaria parasites and the vectors that transmit them.

We are seeking a highly motivated individual to take the lead on analyses of single-cell RNA-seq data generated from Plasmodium parasites at different life stages of their development and under various conditions. This postdoctoral position is supported by NIH awards and involves collaborations with researchers at NIAID, Johns Hopkins School of Public Health and in malaria-endemic countries. There are also opportunities for the successful candidate to develop her/his own independent projects within the framework of this research.
