The postdoc participant will be involved in the development of quantitative models to simulate and predict human immune responses to biologics such as vaccines and cancer immunotherapies.
The end goal of this project is the development of computational tools to enhance efficacy and safety evaluation of vaccines, current and next-generation of engineered therapeutic products, leading to personalized and optimal treatment regimens for patients.
Under the guidance of a mentor, the participant will develop and apply novel techniques to model and simulate interactive cellular and molecular components of human immune system. The activities include literature reviews, data collection/curation, model development, presentation of research results, and preparation of scientific manuscripts.
The qualified candidate should have received a doctoral degree in one of the relevant fields, or be currently pursuing the degree with completion by June 1, 2022. Degree must have been received within the past five years.
Knowledge of immunology, mathematical/statistical modeling and programming skills
Experience with differential equations
Excellent written and oral communication skills
Solid background and skills in biology and computing science
