Shepherd Lab at ASU Seeks Theory & Experimental Postdoctoral Researchers

2/7/2020 3:33:06 PM Steve Presse

1)  Theory postdoctoral position: The successful candidate will work with Dr. Pressé to develop strategies to infer dynamical models of processes from complex data sets--with resolution down to the single molecule level--inside living systems. Briefly, our goal is to unravel dynamical laws governing single molecule behavior in crowded environments from state-of-the-art imaging data sets. As such, our work trains postdocs and fosters cross-disciplinary knowledge across fields including optics, computational statistics, and biophysics. The postdoc hired herein will collaborate closely with experimentalists and graduate students. Group website: http://statphysbio.physics.asu.edu 

 Minimum qualifications: Applicants should hold a doctorate in Statistics, Applied Mathematics, Physics, Physical Chemistry or related discipline by the time of appointment, but no earlier than five years before the start date. Strong programming skills are required.

 Desired qualifications: Knowledge in the following areas is helpful but not required: Computational statistics, Python/Matlab, stochastic processes, machine learning. 

2)  Experimental postdoctoral position: The successful candidate will work jointly with Dr. Shepherd and Dr. Pressé to develop quantitative approaches to understanding regulatory networks and physical constraints dictating dynamical behavior in living systems. For example, using fluorescence imaging and quantitative image analysis to unravel environmental sensing at the single molecule level. As such, our work trains postdocs and fosters cross-disciplinary knowledge across fields including optics, fluorescence imaging, and single molecule methods. The postdoc hired herein will collaborate closely with theorists and graduate students. Group websites: https://shepherdlaboratory.org and http://statphysbio.physics.asu.edu

 

Minimum qualifications: Applicants should hold a doctorate in a subfield relevant to experimental molecular & cellular biology/biophysics or single-molecule studies by the time of appointment, but no earlier than five years before the start date.

 

Desired qualifications: Knowledge in the following areas is helpful but not required: Programming, fluorescence microscopy, wet bench work, image analysis.

Daily Herald (Crystal Lake, Ill., Feb. 16) -- “There certainly is a boom in startup culture,” says Laura Frerichs, the director of the Research Park at the U. of I. “Many people are seeing the opportunity to start companies. Governments are becoming more excited about growing their economies with startups.”
