Positions Available

Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Computational Systems Biology

A full-time postdoctoral position is available in the Ma’ayan Laboratory of Computational Systems Biology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York to develop tools and algorithms for the analysis of large scale biological cellular regulatory networks using graph theory, machine learning, and other mathematical approaches.

The Ma’ayan Laboratory is involved in multi-disciplinary multi-institute NIH funded projects that utilize Big Data analytics to develop better understanding about drug action in human cells, build molecular regulatory networks from high-content genome-wide data, and predict optimized therapeutics for individual patients across several complex diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and HIV.

Candidates are required to have a recent PhD degree in one of the following: Biomedical Sciences, Bioinformatics, Computer Science, Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, Electrical or Systems Engineering and relevant experience with applications to biology and bioinformatics.  Candidates should demonstrate strong programming skills with languages such as Python, Java, JavaScript, PHP and MATLAB. Salary will be commensurate with experience and is in addition to a benefits package.

To apply, please e-mail your CV, research statement, and the names and contact information of three references to: avi.maayan@mssm.edu
