Appointment of a Graduate Trainee — Theoretical/Computational Biologist in the lab of Dr. Shaon Chakrabarti on Contract Basis.
We are seeking a candidate who is interested in working on exciting problems at the intersection of cell biology and theoretical/computational biology. Questions of interest will be largely centered around understanding and modeling cell proliferation, in diverse contexts such as development and disease. More details on research interests of the lab can be found here: https://www.ncbs.res.in/faculty/shaon.
The job responsibilities will involve developing and implementing one or a combination of mathematical, computational, bioinformatics, and machine-learning methods. The candidate will be expected to work closely with a variety of experimental data types from publicly available datasets and data generated within the lab. If interested, the candidate will also have the opportunity to learn wet lab techniques such as cell culture and live/fixed-cell microscopy.
