Derivation of in situ molecular interactions using single-molecule microscopy data

A postdoctoral training position is available in the laboratory of Khuloud Jaqaman, in the Department of Biophysics and the Lyda Hill Department of Bioinformatics at UT Southwestern Medical Center. The project will be focused on continuing the advancement of a novel analytical framework (FISIK) that we have been developing to derive in situ molecular interaction rates from single-molecule and super-resolution imaging data.

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

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in biophysics, biomedical engineering, computer/computational science, or a related field. Publications in peer-reviewed journals are expected. Experience in Monte Carlo simulations and stochastic model calibration is a plus.

The successful candidate will work primarily on the computational side. As the project advances, involvement in the experimental side will be possible as well (if that is of interest).
