A postdoctoral position in computational biology/single cell transcriptomics. Develop and apply algorithms to probe cell subsets, interactions and communication in immune & tumor biology as part of a highly interactive multidisciplinary team.
Responsibilities: The selected candidate will apply bioinformatic tools and will help develop new pipelines and algorithms for analyses of large- scale single cell transcriptomic datasets focused on cell specialization and communication in immune, vascular & tumor biology. A particular emphasis will be on understanding lymphocyte responses and vascular programming in inflammation and tumors.
