A postdoctoral position available open

A postdoctoral position is available immediately for NIH and Research Institute funded
projects at the Das Lab at the Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine at The Research
Institute at NationwideChildren's Hospital (www.nationwidechildrens.org/research). We
are seeking for outstanding candidates who are interested in applying
computational/mathematical methods to solve cutting edge problems in biology. The
fellow is expected to work closely with our experimental collaborators and develop and
analyze models for two different projects: (i) Single cell activation kinetics in immune
cells. (ii) Spatiotemporal kinetics of biofilm formation in middle ear infections. Highly
motivated and career oriented applicants with expertise in statistical physics, inference
methods, stochastic methods, and evolutionary dynamics are particularly encouraged to
apply. No previous background in biology is required however the fellow is expected to
be interested inl earning the relevant biology and communicate with our collaborators.

The fellow is also required to know programming in Fortran/C/C++/MATLAB/Mathematica and Perl/Python. The position is available initially for one year and can be potentially extended for additional years. More details about the lab can be found at, http://www.nationwidechildrens.org/jayajit-das. Recent publications from the group can be found at, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=jayajit+das.

We have a state of the art computer cluster over 120 INTEL processors. The resources at
the Ohio State University campus and Ohio Supercomputer Center are also available. The
position will be for one year, and can be potentially renewed. Interested candidates
should send (preferably by email), a brief cover letter stating your interest in our lab, a
short CV and names and contact information of three referees to,
jayajit.das @ nationwidechildrens.org or das.70 @ osu.edu.
