  • Job facts

We are seeking an independent and motivated researcher for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Department to apply cutting edge single cell computational approaches to understand the role of sensory neurons in airway function. The successful candidate will join a highly collaborative research team that includes members of Bioinformatics, Neuroscience, and Immunology and will work exceptionally closely with bench colleagues in these groups. Our work is focused on dissecting the transcriptional and molecular pathways in sensory neuron populations that are required for normal lung function, and which might be dysfunctional in airway diseases.
