Hourly Salary


The Meyer and Navlakha labs in the Simons Center for Quantitative Biology at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory are looking for a post-doctoral fellow interested in combining computational and experimental approaches to study tolerance induction and generation of diversity in the immune system. Computationally, the position will require experience in machine learning and statistics. Experimentally, the position will require experience in in vitro imaging combined with cell tracking experiments and tissue culture. An ideal candidate would be well-versed in both, but sufficient enthusiasm and excitement to learn can replace lack of experience.
