Postdoc & Early Career

The Laubenbacher Research Group at UConn Health and the Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral researcher to join an interdisciplinary team focused on an NIH-funded project to develop new software design approaches to multiscale computational modeling. The application area is the innate immune response to fungal infections in the lung.

The project team combines expertise in mathematical modeling, pulmonary immunology, and scientific visualization. The position is for two years, with the possibility of an extension. The researcher to fill this position will play an important leadership role in the development of innovative approaches to disease models in biomedicine.

The Laubenbacher Group has several other ongoing and planned multiscale disease modeling projects that will also benefit from this research. An important focus of the project is on the design of novel software architectures for multiscale models, combining a strongly modular design with Dockerization to build models that are easily extendable, modifiable, shareable, and whose output is reproducible. Innovative visualization techniques will make the models usable by non-modelers.

We are looking for a researcher who has experience with up-to-date software design for computational and mathematical modeling, and familiarity with popular programming languages, such as Java, Python, and C++.

A strong mathematical background related to various aspects of dynamic models would be a great plus. Also, experience with Docker containers is desirable but not required.
