A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Junhyong Kim at University of Pennsylvania, School of Arts and Sciences. We are pursuing multiple single cell biology projects concerning genomics and evolution of cell differentiation and cell diversity. We are actively developing novel technologies including sub-cellular transcriptomics, new machine learning methods, and models of system function to examine the functional identification of cell phenotypes and RNA biology of individual cells. More information is found in https://csg.sas.upenn.edu and http://kim.bio.upenn.edu.
Our group tightly integrates both computational modeling and experimental approaches. We especially value a broad interdisciplinary outlook, an ability to work well with others, and interest in theory and concepts. The postdoctoral fellow will have a variety of projects to choose from including neuro-cell biology, mitochondrial genetics, kidney regeneration, and opportunities to develop their own projects.
Expertise is desired in one or more of evolutionary biology, molecular biology, genomics, and computational biology.
Please send to Junhyong@sas.upenn.edu: (1) cover letter describing interest in the position and future research interests (not to exceed one page); (2) CV; (3) names and contact information for three references.
