Multiple postdoctoral scientist positions (2+ years) are available in Prof. Joshua Weitz’s group in the School of Biological Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA with potential cross-appointment at the Institut de Biologie of the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, France where Prof. Weitz holds the Blaise Pascal Chair. The postdoc positions are in (i) theory and models of viral life history evolution; (ii) impacts of viral infections on marine microbial population dynamics and ecosystem functioning. In both positions, postdocs will have the opportunity to develop mechanistic, eco-evolutionary models of virus-microbe interactions, connect quantitative model predictions with experimental datasets, and take on leadership roles in international collaborations supported by the Simons Foundation.
Preferences for applicants include: (1) PhD in quantitative biosciences, physics, ecology, evolutionary biology, applied mathematics, or related area; (2) Strong quantitative & computational skills; (3) Excellent communication skills; (4) Interest and experience in model-data integration and some experience in pathogen and/or virus dynamics.
Positions to start approximately March 2022; start date negotiable, includes competitive salary, benefits, collaborative opportunities in the USA, France and Israel, and travel budget. Screening of applicants will begin immediately and applications will be considered until positions are filled. To apply, e-mail Joshua Weitz (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a CV, a 1-page cover letter detailing how your research interests are related to the position(s) and include contact information for 3 references.
More information on the group’s research can be found at the Weitz group website. Georgia Tech is located in Atlanta, GA in the Midtown neighborhood – a vibrant, urban community. Depending on circumstances, postdocs may also be based at IBENS located in Paris near the Pantheon in the heart of a multidisciplinary research community.
Georgia Tech is a unit of the University System of Georgia and an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
