Description

Exciting opportunity to join the laboratory of Dr. Jeff Bailey in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and Center for International Health Research at Brown University and the Warren Alpert Medical School. The Bailey lab combines innovative experimental and computational approaches leveraging genetics and genomics to understand the underpinnings of infectious disease and host-pathogen interactions with a major focus on malaria.

Candidate will take the lead on a new and ongoing NIH R01 funded projects investigating:

  1. strain specific immunity in falciparum malaria
  2. genetics and genomics of response and protection for the RTSS malaria vaccine.
  3. evolution, population genetics, and  modeling of antimalarial drug resistance

Ideal candidate will have genomics experience and computational (informatics/modeling/statistics) proficiency --with at least a minimum proficiency in R/BioConductor, Python and/or C++ , allowing for the manipulation and analysis of large genomic datasets that will be generated. Applicants lacking significant computational background will be considered if candidate has a strong aptitude and desire to develop such computational skills. Candidate must have a PhD in related field such as genomics, infectious disease,   computational biology, bioinformatics or biostatistics.

The right candidate should also have strong organization and communication skills, with demonstrated ability to productively work as a member of a team. Strong verbal and written communication skills in English are required. The candidate will also have ample opportunities to work on both individual and team projects, with excellent publication prospects and opportunities for personal growth. Willingness for periodic travel to study sites overseas to work with collaborators would be an asset.
