Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the research group of Prof. Samuel Isaacson in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Boston University. This position is to develop stochastic reaction-drift-diffusion methods for studying T cell signaling dynamics in realistic cellular geometries. The project involves both the development of new particle-based methods for simulating spatial transport and reactions within cells, and the development of mathematical models for T cell signaling in collaboration with experimentalists. Applicants interested in either biological modeling or scientific computing are invited to apply.
Applicants should have a background in mathematical biology, biophysics, scientific computing, computational physics, numerical analysis or related areas. As many planned simulations require solving computationally expensive PDE and particle models, expertise in a compiled language is required (C, C++, Fortran or Julia). No previous experience in T cell modeling is required.
Applications should be submitted through Mathjobs at
and include a CV, a research statement, and three letters of reference. The start date is flexible. Review of applications will be ongoing until the position is filled. For more information about this position please contact Prof. Isaacson at email@example.com
