We seek to hire three postdoctoral fellows—two modeling and one empirical—to join our research team at the University of Idaho. The two modeling postdocs will be housed within the Center for Modeling Complex Interactions (CMCI). CMCI is funded by the National Institutes of Health and serves as an epicenter for research at the university. The central concept behind CMCI is that by housing modelers in proximity to each other and having them interact regularly with empiricists, synergies will emerge that drive research. For all three postdocs, we seek individuals who are creative in applying their skills to new problems, who are good at communicating across disciplines, and who see themselves thriving in our highly collaborative environment. Researchers from CMCI, in collaboration with faculty from Brown University and the University of Vermont, were recently awarded a major NSF EPSCoR grant with the goal of using biophysical protein models to map genetic variation to phenotypes. The empirical postdoc position will work on this NSF grant, in close collaboration with modelers from CMCI and researchers at Brown and Vermont.
All three positions will be located at the University of Idaho in Moscow.
To apply, submit to email@example.com: 1) a letter of application specifying which position (empirical or modeling) you are interested in and how you fit the job requirements; 2) a CV; 3) contact information for three individuals who can provide recommendations, and 4) PDFs of up to three publications. Please use POSTDOC APPLICATION as the subject line.
