We seek an outstanding and highly motivated early-career scientist in the fields of computational biology and/or bioinformatics. The position will involve novel integrated multimodal analyses of single cell datasets in blood immune cells and tissue. Qualified candidates will have an opportunity to design research projects that leverage cutting-edge approaches that include paired ATAC-seq and RNA-seq, ASAP-seq, and ECCITE-seq. This postdoctoral fellowship provides a unique opportunity to conduct research with broad scientific and technical impact.
The Tsibris Laboratory studies the biology of HIV latency and its reversal in the context of human disease. The guiding principle of our work is a cure for HIV. The Tsibris lab is located in Cambridge, MA, an area rich in world-class academic centers, pioneering biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, and a diverse, welcoming, and inclusive community. Fellows will hold the academic rank of Research Fellow at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School and be provided a competitive salary and benefits. Appointments are anticipated for two years, with renewal after the first year contingent upon satisfactory performance.
Applicants must hold a PhD degree, or the equivalent, and have significant expertise in bioinformatics and/or computational biology. The ideal candidate will have prior experience in performing integrated single cell bioinformatics analyses and be motivated to apply computational approaches to study the biology of the immune system and retroviral pathogens. Experience in immunology research is preferred. Publications in leading journals and completion of a doctoral degree in a relevant scientific field before the start date are required.
