A postdoctoral research fellow position in the area of computational toxicology is available in the Loo lab (http://web.bii.a-star.edu.sg/~loolh) , A*STAR, Singapore. The group is interested in studying chemical-induced toxicity using quantitative data modeling and cellular imaging methods. The group has recently developed the first high-throughput cellular imaging and computational platform for predicting kidney toxicity.
The successful candidate will be part of an interdisciplinary team that develops novel in vitro and computational models for predicting the toxicity of drugs, food ingredients, industrial chemicals, and environmental pollutants. He/she will develop new computational methods to analyze and model cellular responses based on chemical structures, cellular phenotypes, and gene and protein expression profiles. The candidate will have the opportunity to work in a highly stimulating environment, and participate in the global effort to develop next-generation and animal-free technologies for Toxicity Testing in the 21st Century (TT21C).
