Under the guidance of the mentor, the research participant may be involved in the following activities: Literature reviews of the post ingestion bioavailability of sorbed organics
Design and execution in vivo rodent feeding studies
Measurement of PFAS tissue concentrations
Construction of empirical PFAS bioavailability models
Preparation and submission manuscripts for publication in peer reviewed journals

The Beckman Lab at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center in Washington, DC and the Georgetown Innovation Center for Biomedical Informatics is recruiting a computational/dry lab postdoctoral fellow to support a newly funded, Partnering PI DoD Breast Cancer Research Program Breakthrough Award (partnering with Dr. Rebecca Riggins) studying the role of sub clonal hypermutation in HER2+/ER+ breast cancer. Our research program incorporates computational biology, mathematics, cell/molecular biology, mouse models, and single-cell ‘omics technologies to devise new strategies that overcome treatment resistance in this challenging form of breast cancer. LCCC is part of the Georgetown University Medical Center, and the only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in our Nation’s capital. The position reports jointly to Dr. Robert Beckman and Dr. Matthew McCoy
About Us: Dr. Beckman is an oncology clinical researcher and mathematical
biologist (https://icbi.georgetown.edu/beckman/), Dr. McCoy is a computational biologist (https://icbi.georgetown.edu/mccoy/, and Dr. Riggins is a basic/translational breast cancer scientist (https://sites.google.com/georgetown.edu/rigginslab/home). We are a highly collaborative team, and committed to supportive mentoring practices and your career development.
About You: PhD in a relevant discipline (computer science, mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics or similar). Willingness to learn and contribute to a creative and multidisciplinary group is a must. Fluency in R, python, and statistics is required. Competitive applicants should also
be conversant in calculus and linear algebra. Experience with machine learning is preferred, and knowledge of systems biology and cancer biology would be a plus.
What We Need From You: Please send a cover letter briefly describing your prior experience/training and current/future career goals; your CV; PDFs of relevant preprints and/or publications; and the names and full contact info for 3 professional references to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline is February 1, 2021.
Computational biology position, Staff Scientist level
National Eye Institute, NIH
We are an immunology group of four PIs working on basic and clinically oriented studies relating to immunity and autoimmunity affecting the eye and vision. We are looking for a computational biologist/bioinformatician to work with us in analyzing diverse "omics" datasets derived from experimental and clinical samples: genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics. The types of data we generate include, but are not limited to, 16S and shotgun sequencing of bacterial genomes, multiparameter flow cytometric analyses, bulk, long-read and single-cell RNA-Seq, ATAC-seq, and we are about to embark on proteomic and metabolomic analyses.
The successful candidate will have a PhD or equivalent with experience in Biology, Biostatistics, Bioinformatics or related fields, with interest in biology and/or the immune system. Proficiency in programming (R, Python, etc.) data mining and ability to translate ideas into code is required, as is a proven track record of “omics” data analysis.
The computational scientist will work and collaborate with wet bench and clinical researchers at various career stages and be able to assist them in data analysis, interpretation, and in understanding and using basic computational analysis tools. He/she will also contribute to drafting of presentations and manuscripts and will have co-authorship status in publications. Salary and benefits commensurate with experience.
If interested, please send CV, cover letter and names of 3 references to Rachel Caspi email@example.com.
TT Assistant or Associate Professor of Microbiology
Kennesaw State University
There is an opening for a tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor of Microbiology at Kennesaw State University.KSU is a lovely campus situated in a northern suburb of Atlanta. They are close enough to both the progressive vitality of the Atlanta social life and collaborative academic institutes such as GA Tech, Emory, Morehouse, Spelman and GSU yet far enough to stay out of the traffic! Although they are the 2nd largest university in GA, we have a student-centered focus much like that of smaller colleges. The university is prioritizing initiatives that advance inclusion and diversity and the department of Molecular and Cellular Biology is working hard to reflect the importance of lifting up all voices. If this is of interest to you, the ad in Science with the link to the application site can be found at: https://jobs.sciencecareers.org/job/520375/assistant-or-associate-professor-of-microbiology/
