Open Postdoc Research Positions in Modeling Influenza Infections
Multiple staff and postdoctoral research positions are available in the Department of Pediatrics and the Institute for the Study of Host-Pathogen Systems at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) in Memphis, TN. The successful applicant will work with Dr. Amber Smith (https://www.ambersmithlab.com) to develop and analyze mathematical models of the immune response to influenza virus infections and coinfections. The Smith lab is a dual dry/wet laboratory and uniquely generates robust data sets to train and validate the models and their predictions.
Successful candidates will develop and analyze dynamical infection models, use parameter estimation to investigate experimental and clinical data, help design new experiments, and generate new hypotheses about infection biology.
The ability to work well in a fast paced, collaborative, medically focused research environment are also preferred. Experience and willingness to work closely with experimental collaborators and design experiments is also highly desired. The positions require independent, career-focused, and creative individuals.
