Opportunities with MaHPIC

close up of lab equipment
Now Hiring:  Postdoctoral Fellows and Research Staff in Systems Biology and Bioinformatics

The Malaria Host-Pathogen Interaction Center is seeking multiple postdoctoral and staff research associates with a combined background in biology and bioinformatics. The Consortium uses non-human primates as a model for malaria and applies cutting-edge technologies including high-content flow cytometry, telemetry, metabolomics, transcriptomics and other omics to deliver a dynamic, multi-angle view of host-parasite interactions and develop new strategies to improve human host resilience to infection. The consortium is a highly collaborative, fast-paced, and deliverable-oriented environment that provides excellent working conditions, compensation and career development opportunities for its team members.  The position will be based at Emory University, in collaboration with GaTech, UGA and international investigators.
Applicants should possess strong scientific and/or computational skills, an affinity for hypothesis development and testing in a collaborative research environment, and a drive to learn new skills.  An advanced degree in a biological science, computational biology, bioinformatics, or a related computer science discipline is required – Master’s degree at minimum for staff positions and doctoral degree for postdoctoral positions.

Areas of focus include:
  • Analysis of high-throughput genomic data with the goal of investigating the host biological networks activated by the parasite and simultaneously assessing changes in the transcriptome of the parasite. 
  • Design, implementation, and analysis of experiments focusing on host immunology and physiology in response to infection by malaria parasites. The goal of this work is to identify aspects that enable the host to be more or less resilient to disease outcomes due to the malaria parasite.
  • Analysis of multiple big data sets, including metabolomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, lipidomics, immunological and clinical data and performing analyses and integration to seek omics correlates of outcome and clinical symptoms (severity, etc.), and mechanistic connections between different data types.
