We are looking to fill at least two positions with postdoctoral candidates well-versed in quantitative science, but also very interested in learning and tackling research problems in the realm of biology and medicine. The project is at the intersection of systems biology and cell mechanics and is co-directed by the Rangamani, McCulloch, and Ghosh groups at UCSD.
Expectations and required skill sets
– Identifies problems or issues of importance in the functioning of living systems and identifies possible biophysical and biochemical mechanisms underlying their function.
– Creates science-based models integrating biomechanical and biochemical phenomena to quantitatively investigate these mechanisms.
– Gleans information and data from biology literature, while being able to use both analytical and computational skills to derive and formulate model results to be compared to that literature (e.g., molecular biophysics, information processing and signaling networks, self-organization at the cellular and multi-cellular scales, as well as evolution and ecological dynamics)
-Engages with experimentalists to understand data production methods and limitations.
– Writes about research and work in papers to be published in leading, peer-reviewed scientific journals and discussed at leading conferences
– Attends scientific conferences, makes presentations, collaborates with other researchers at this and other institutions
– Mentors and helps teach graduate and undergraduate students
– Write proposals to obtain research funding
– Performs all other duties as assigned
– Strong research background and publication of peer-reviewed papers in academic journals
– Experience teaching and mentoring undergraduates and grad students in conducting collaborative research
– Excellent verbal and written communication skills, as well as oral presentation skills
– Organization and time management skills
– Knowledge of modern research methods, data collection and analyses
– Knowledge of the principles and techniques of the subject discipline
– Ability to work in a collaborative environment
– Ability to work independently and professionally with minimal supervision and direction
Ph.D. or equivalent doctorate in any quantitative science, such as physics, chemistry, mathematics, bioengineering, systems biology, etc
