Research Assistantship - Single Cell Analysis 

Posted 02/28/2024 (available Spring Qtr)

A graduate student RAship in single cell analysis is available in Professor Sylvia Plevritis’ Laboratory located in the James H. Clark Center. The RA will contribute to development and application of computational tools for analyzing single-cell proteomic cancer datasets. The specific project will focus on methods to analyze the effectiveness of drug combinations using single cell proteomics data, generated using CYTOF, from primary cancer biospecimens. The RA will work closely with computational scientists and experimental molecular biologists to translate computationally-derived results into clinically relevant insights. Candidates must have a strong quantitative background, with graduate studies in computational biology, bioinformatics or related field including engineering, computer science, statistics, or mathematics. Strong knowledge in machine learning and programming (R, Python) are required. Experience with single cell analytics and/or multivariate survival analysis is desirable. Excellent verbal and written communication skills are essential.  

Applicants should e-mail a cover letter describing research experience, accomplishments and research interests and resume, under the following subject line: “RAship in Single Cell Analysis” to Corinne Beck.
