Careers

Since its establishment in July 2006, the Institute for Genomics & Systems Biology (IGSB) has been rapidly growing through the active recruitment of faculty and staff.  IGSB will house 9 to 10 core faculty members in genomics and systems biology at the University of Chicago and several scientists at Argonne National Laboratory. The Institute is also recruiting junior scientists and technical staff to fulfill IGSB mission goals.

Current Opportunities

PhD Student Positions on Cellular Information Processing and Single-Cell Analysis

Applications are invited for two openings at the new Systems Biology and Bioengineering Group with Professor Savas Tay, at the Institute for Molecular Engineering, University of Chicago (see http://ime.uchicago.edu/savas_tay/ and www.microfluidics.ethz.ch).

Postdoctoral Position in Regulatory Genomics at the University of Chicago

A position is available for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher in the group of Barbara Stranger at The University of Chicago, in the Section of Genetic Medicine, and the Institute of Genomics and Systems Biology. The researcher will be involved in analysis of a variety of types of human genomics data, including DNA-Seq, RNA-Seq, SNPs, DNA methylation, etc. Current research in the lab includes (1) transcriptional network and pathway analysis; (2) comparative and population genomics; (3) functional genomic data integration and data mining; and (4) detection of disease susceptibility genes/networks.

To formally apply, please send the following in PDF format to Barbara Stranger (bstranger at uchicago dot edu):
1. A curriculum vitae, including names of 3 referees.
2. A brief statement describing current and future research goals.

Postdoctoral Positions on Cellular Information Processing

Applications are invited for two immediate openings at the new Systems Biology and Bioengineering Group with Professor Savas Tay, at the Institute for Molecular Engineering, University of Chicago (seehttp://www.microfluidics.ethz.ch"> http://ime.uchicago.edu/savas_tay/ and http://www.microfluidics.ethz.ch). We want to understand how immune networks (like NF-kappaB) process dynamical signaling inputs and how they interact with biological noise, at the single-cell level. The following papers describe the current direction of our research program.

Postdoctoral positions on developing next generation highthroughput single-cell analysis methods

Applications are invited for two immediate openings at the new Systems Biology and Bioengineering Group with Professor Savas Tay, at the Institute for Molecular Engineering, University of Chicago (see http://ime.uchicago.edu/savas_tay/ and www.microfluidics.ethz.ch)

Two Postdoctoral Positions in Data-Science

The University of Chicago, Department of Medicine, the Institute for Genomics and Systems Biology, and the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society are announcing the availability of up to two postdoctoral positions in data-science, focusing on data-driven model discovery from massive clinical-social-and other datasets to uncover predictive analytics and reverse-engineer complex multiscale spatio-temporal phenomena spanning the biological and the social sciences.
