Hi everybody,

We are looking for a computational postdoc to lead new projects developing and using data mining, machine learning and Bayesian phylodynamic approaches to investigate the spread and evolution of emerging viruses, including Lassa and Ebola. This position is part of a larger initiate with the recently established Center for Viral Systems Biology and our lab is located at the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, CA. Sunshine and views come for free as part of this position...!

The person we're after:

  • Ph.D. in computational biology, computer science, mathematics, physics, or equivalent.
  • Programming skills in two or more languages (C++/Java/Python/R/MATLAB).
  • Experience with data mining and machine learning is highly desired.
  • Data visualization in Python/R/d3js is a plus.
  • Deep knowledge of Bayesian statistics, in particular Bayesian phylogenetics is a plus.

We're a relatively young lab, but have had a number of pretty cool studies investigating Zika, Ebola, and Lassa published over the last couple of years. Go check out the lab and read more about the job(s) here: Andersen Lab Jobs.
