Postdoctoral Research Assoc
About Northeastern: Founded in 1898, Northeastern is a global research university and a world leader in experiential learning. The same commitment to connecting with the world drives our use-inspired research enterprise. The university offers a comprehensive range of undergraduate and graduate programs leading to degrees through the doctorate in nine colleges and schools. Our campuses in Charlotte, N.C., San Francisco, Seattle, and Toronto are regional platforms for undergraduate and graduate learning and collaborative research. Northeastern pursues advanced research in security and materials at the Innovation Campus in Burlington, Massachusetts, and in coastal sustainability at the Marine Science Center in Nahant, Massachusetts.
About the Opportunity: The Postdoctoral Research Associate will be working on developing and applying methods of statistical physics to the functional dynamics of living systems. Areas which will be investigated include learning and memory in the neural and immune systems, the role of genome structure in gene expression, and the evolution of drug resistance by selection of both genetic and epigenetic variants in a population. Research will involve the construction and solution of analytic and computational models and collaborating with experimental groups to test some of the predictions of these models.
PhD in Physics, Bio-engineering, Synthetic Biology, or related field.
