Post-doc: Information Processing within Wound Healing Signaling Networks open

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the Wollman Lab (http://wollmanlab.ucsd.edu . The Wollman lab is part of the San Diego Center for Systems Biology, the qBio program, and the Departments of Cell and Developmental Biology and Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of California San Diego. The lab is highly interdisciplinary and combines quantitative microscopy, computational image analysis and mathematical modeling to investigate information processing within mammalian signaling networks.

The project aims at understanding how initial wound response signal transduction networks function in the presence of biological "noise". The following paper is an example of the project:

Accurate information transmission through dynamic biochemical signaling networks. Selimkhanov J, Taylor B, Yao J, Pilko A, Albeck J, Hoffmann A, Tsimring L, Wollman R. Science. 2014

The successful applicant should: 1. Believe that science is fun and exciting. 2. Be fascinated by the ability of signal transduction networks to allow cells to respond to a changing environment. 3. Have a recent PhD degree in cell biology, bioengineering, computational biology, biophysics, or a related field. And 4. Demonstrate expertize in at least a subset of the following: mammalian cell culture, mathematical modeling, microscopy, and computational image analysis.

Self-motivated individuals are encouraged to send their CV, a brief (1-2 paragraphs) statement of interest and contact information of two references to Roy Wollman, rwollman @ ucsd.edu.
