Available Postdoctoral Researcher Opportunities in Systems Biology
The Altschuler and Wu labs are focused on understanding basic principles underlying signal transduction in cells. How does information propagate through biological networks? How do biological networks filter signal from noise to give rise to precise spatial-temporal behaviors within a single cell? How do complex distributions of single cell behaviors arise within a population, and how do these distributions change in response to perturbations? To investigate these questions, we make use of both experimental and theoretical approaches, including single-cell, high-content microscopy assays, image processing, statistical analysis, and mathematical modeling. Our labs are highly multi-disciplinary, and postdocs with diverse backgrounds will have the opportunity to work side-by-side.
Applicants should have a strong interest in quantitative biology, with a Ph.D. in the biological, engineering, mathematical, or physical sciences. Applicants should submit a brief one-page description of research interests and plans, a resume, and contact information for three references to Dr. Altschuler or Dr. Wu via e-mail (Steven.Altschuler@UTSouthwestern.edu or Lani.Wu@UTSouthwestern.edu).
