    Opportunity: Postdoctoral Fellow in Computational Biology @ Argonne National Laboratory -- Argonne, IL (US)
    Submitted by Samuel Seaver; posted on Thursday, September 23, 2021


    Argonne National Laboratory is seeking a Postdoctoral Appointee with a background in Computational Biology to join an exciting project. In this role you will conduct basic research in computational biology and systems biology with the goal of understanding the dynamic response of plastidial metabolism in the event of micronutrient scarcity. You will reconstruct and simulate the plastidial metabolism of several crop species, modeling the dynamic response of this system under changing environmental conditions. Ultimately, the goal is to build a deep mechanistic understanding of how the dependency of key cofactors in plastidial metabolism will impact the plant's ability to manage the flow of energy, carbon, and nitrogen. You will also validate predictions by integrating omics data into the simulations, in collaboration with an integrative multi-institutional research team. Data and algorithms will be integrated in the DOE systems biology knowledgebase (KBase; for public dissemination.


    • Recent or soon-to-be completed PhD in Chemical Engineering or Computer Science
    • Comprehensive knowledge of computational biology with emphasis on metabolism, chemistry, and genomics
    • Considerable knowledge of bioinformatics tools, algorithms, and data management
    • Considerable knowledge of mathematical theory, including statistics, sensitivity analysis, uncertainty analysis, sampling, and parameter fitting
    • Experience and skills in interdisciplinary research involving computational biologists, computer scientists, and experimental biologists with emphasis on communication of basic biological and computational concepts
    • Ability to model Argonne's Core Values: Impact, Safety, Respect, Integrity, and Teamwork


    One year


    Argonne, IL 60439 (approximately 25 miles SW of Chicago)
