Job opportunities in whole-cell modeling @ Mt Sinai in NYC

The Karr Lab at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is seeking talented, ambitious researchers to help develop whole-cell computational models of individual cells, as well as new technologies to enable larger and more accurate whole-cell models.

Despite advances in molecular biology and genomics, we still do not understand the details of how phenotype arises from genotype. We are developing whole-cell computational models which comprehensively predict how behavior emerges from the molecular level by representing all of the biochemical activity inside cells. Our goal is to use whole-cell models to advance bioengineering and medicine. Our research is highly interdisciplinary, involving systems biology, genomics, bioinformatics, data integration, parallel simulation, and software engineering, and highly team-oriented.

Desired skills/experience
Because whole-cell modeling is highly interdisciplinary, we're looking for team members with a broad range of skills and experience:
•         PhD, MS, or BS in computational biology or related field
•         Strong experience dynamical modeling, genome-scale modeling, cell biology, genomics, bioinformatics, computer science, and/or software engineering
•         Strong desire to tackle challenging problems and deep commitment to innovation
•         Abilities to think creatively and integrate diverse concepts
•         Passion for biology, bioengineering, and medicine
