Job Description

Dr. Hannah Meyer at the Simons Center for Quantitative Biology at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) invites applications for a postdoctoral position in DEVELOPMENTAL IMMUNOLOGY. Interested candidates should send a cover letter of past research accomplishments and future research interests, CV, contact information of three references to hmeyer@cshl.edu.

The Meyer lab studies how the organization of the thymus and the cells therein provide effective education system for T cells through genomics and mathematical modeling. For more information on our research program, see https://meyer-lab-cshl.github.io/

The successful candidate will study tolerance induction and generation of diversity in the immune system as part of a larger interdisciplinary team of computational and experimental scientists. Our approach uses a variety of sequencing approaches to study the spatial organization of self-antigen expression on a cellular and thymus-wide level. The scientific approach to the project can be tailored to the applicant based on prior experience. Candidates with either a strong background in immunology or expertise in computational analysis or wet-lab experimentation are encouraged to apply.

This position is affiliated with the Simons Center for Quantitative Biology (SCQB).

Requirements

A Ph.D. in Immunology, Bioinformatics or Quantitative Biology/ Computer Science/Mathematics/Physics. Expertise in either scientific programming (C/C++/Python/Matlab/R) or experimental immunology (Flow cytometry, next generation sequencing) with experience in scientific data visualization (Python/Matlab/R) is required. Ideal candidates will exhibit resourcefulness, independence, with a willingness to take the lead and actively drive the research project.

We offer a competitive salary and comprehensive benefits program, including medical and dental insurance, and access to an affordable and licensed on-site childcare center. In addition, the CSHL Meetings and Courses program provides an opportunity for interacting with a broad range of researchers.

CSHL is a world-renowned research and educational institution recognized internationally for its excellence in ground-breaking research programs in cancer, neuroscience, plant biology, genomics, and bioinformatics and broad educational mission. The Laboratory offers a warm, collegial, and highly collaborative scientific environment. It is located on the north shore of Long Island and readily accessible from New York City via the Long Island Rail Road.

If you are interested in joining the lab, please send a CV and a statement of your research accomplishments and interests along with the names of three references to: hmeyer@cshl.edu as well as submitting an online application here: http://cshl.peopleadmin.com/postings/16459

Position Number: 02571-R
