We are seeking highly motivated researchers to work in data analysis, mathematical models and computational methods correctly accounting for noise sources and biological processes
involved in gene expression and regulatory networks. Specific projects range from development applications or disease-specific models to multi-scale models studying the genome in both space and time. The postdoc will join the Marquez-Lago lab (https://sites.google.com/view/marquezlagolab). Appointment will be for one year with the possibility of extension contingent on satisfactory performance.

Qualifications:

• PhD in Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Bioinformatics, or related field with a general background in quantitative biology. Some Molecular Biology knowledge would be a plus.
• Programming (Matlab and/or Python essential, C++ a plus) and mathematical/analytic skills are expected. Previous experience in modeling of biological processes and/or biochemical
systems is a must.
• The candidate has to be collegiate and be able to communicate well with scientists from diverse backgrounds.

To apply:

Please submit a single PDF file to Dr. Marquez Lago’s address (tmarquez (at) uab.edu) containing:
(a) letter of intent explaining candidate’s fit, motivation and interest in the research project associated with the open position,
(b) a CV including a full list of publications and names and contact details of three references (including institutional email addresses), and
(c) one sample authored publication/manuscript.

Referees of short listed candidates will be contacted directly. While the start date is negotiable,
