A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Amber Smith in the Department of Pediatrics at University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC). The successful applicant will work with Dr. Amber Smith to develop and analyze mathematical models of the immune response and treatment of pathogenic infections and coinfections. The Smith lab is a combined dry/wet laboratory and has the unique ability to generate robust data sets to train and validate the models and predictions.
The successful applicant will collaborate with computational biologists, virologists, bacteriologists, immunologists, and clinicians within the Smith Lab, across UTHSC, and at neighboring St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. He/she will develop and analyze dynamical infection models, use parameter estimation to investigate experimental kinetic data, design new experiments, and generate new hypotheses about infection biology. Publishing in high quality journals and submitting grants will be expected.
