Postdoctoral Scholar in Stochastic Modeling of Genetic Circuits open

Postdoctoral Scholar in Stochastic Modeling of Genetic Circuits at the University of Delaware, DE, USA

Prof. Abhyudai Singh's laboratory at the University of Delaware is seeking a postdoctoral scholar (2-3 years) for modeling, analysis, and inference of gene regulatory circuits at the single cell level. In close collaboration with experimental researchers, the Singh lab is studying stochastic dynamics of genetic circuits in the context of diverse biological and medical problems. These problems include but are not limited to cell size homeostasis, cancer drug-resistance, HIV latency, lysis timing of bacteriophages, developmental systems and synthetic biology. The postdoc will have flexibility in choosing the research project, which can be further tailored to the interests of the individual. The ideal candidate will have a PhD in Engineering, Math, Physics or Biology, a strong mathematical foundation in stochastic processes, dynamical systems, control theory, excellent communication skills, and a proven record of independent research.  Past experience in biomodeling, and a basic knowledge of cellular biology is preferred, but not required for this position.

The postdoctoral position provides a competitive annual salary plus benefits and health insurance.  The start date is negotiable and applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Highly motivated applicants are encouraged to email a statement of research interests, CV, and contact details for three references to absingh(at)udel.edu.
