Computational Postdoctoral Associate Chuang Lab   Computational biology is critical not only to the processing and manipulation of data, but to the scientific discovery process itself. Our lab empowers computational biologists to make discoveries by providing a rich work environment for computational/mathematical analysis of biological systems, access to novel data and computational infrastructure, resources to conduct new experimental measurements, and partnerships with experimental colleagues with shared interests.   As of December 2019, the Chuang Lab is seeking a postdoctoral scientist to join our projects combining computational and experimental approaches to study cancer. Our current projects are at the intersections of cancer biology, machine learning, genomics, image analysis, and pathology. This is a fast-moving field with tremendous opportunities to understand cancer and impact patient outcomes.   New team members will have unique opportunities to investigate mechanisms of cancer, to design new studies, and to develop novel artificial intelligence approaches to mine these data. Our lab seeks to understand how tumor ecology and evolution impact susceptibility and response to immunotherapy, targeted therapy, and chemotherapy. We interrogate these questions by generating data from clinical samples and model systems (xenografts, organoids) and by mining large cancer genomic and imaging datasets using techniques such as deep learning and evolutionary modeling. This position is supported by an R01 grant from the NCI awarded through 2023.   While our lab focuses on computational approaches, we also generate our own data by making use of the extensive scientific services at JAX and in collaboration with many experimental colleagues. These include clinical and experimental groups at JAX (Robson, Palucka, Liu, Anczukow-Camarda, et al.) and with external partners (NCI PDXNet, Yale, Northwestern, UCSD, et al). We have particular access to patient-derived xenografts (PDXs) due to Prof. Chuang's position as co-PI of the National Cancer Institute's PDXNet Consortium Data Commons and Coordination Center, in addition to the extensive data and experimental resources for PDXs at JAX. Thus candidates will have novel opportunities at the intersection of data interpretation, algorithms, and experimental design.   For this position, the ideal candidate will have Ph.D. experience in computational biology, cancer biology, evolutionary biology, digital pathology, or a similar discipline. Outstanding applicants new to computational biology will also be considered as the lab has an extensive record of training candidates who originally studied in other fields, including physics, applied math, computer science, electrical engineering, and experimental molecular biology. A particular area of growth for the lab is the combination of genomic and pathological analysis, and those with a medical background in pathology but a strong interest in computational approaches are encouraged to apply. Computing (programming, data analysis, statistical inference, etc), publication, and communication skills will be essential. Across these backgrounds, enthusiasm and aptitude for computational biology are what define the lab.   Interested and qualified individuals should send a current CV, a 1-page (maximum) Statement of Research Interests and Career Goals, and contact information for 3 references to Dr. Jeff Chuang at jeff.chuang@jax.org

A postdoctoral training opportunity is available in the lab of Dr. Gareth Howell at The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) in Bar Harbor, Maine, to study the role of neuroinflammation and vascular health in glaucoma. Dr. Howell’s lab uses genetic and genomic approaches using mouse models to better understand the early stages of neurodegenerative diseases including glaucoma and dementias. A particular focus of this postdoctoral position will be on understanding the mechanisms by which glaucoma risk factors such as aging and intraocular pressure elevation affect the interactions between glial cells (such as astrocytes and microglia) with endothelial cells in the optic nerve head and retina. Dr. Howell, who was recently awarded a BrightFocus National Glaucoma Research Award to understand the role of the CDN2B-AS locus in glaucoma, is a co-PI on an NIH R01 grant with Dr. Richard Libby from the University of Rochester to study the endothelin system in glaucoma, and is the Diana Davis Spencer Foundation Chair for Glaucoma Research.

  The Munger Lab (mungerlab.com) is seeking a postdoctoral associate to join our growing interdisciplinary team in Bar Harbor, Maine. Our systems genetics research program explores the interface between genetics and the environment, and how complex interactions between the two can push gene regulatory networks that drive normal cell differentiation and organ development to an altered disease state. Specifically, we take advantage of powerful, genetically diverse mouse populations (Diversity Outbred and Collaborative Cross) and stem cell lines to study how genetic variation in the population impacts multiple layers of gene regulation genome-wide, with an emphasis on post-transcriptional processes that modulate protein levels independent from transcript abundance. Postdoctoral associates lead their own projects as well as participate in larger collaborative efforts involving multiple investigators, and given the current uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, postdocs may be expected to work remotely for a significant portion of their time. Consequently, being able to work independently and as part of a (remote) team will be essential to success in this role.    The successful candidate will integrate large genetic and multi-dimensional genomic datasets from bulk tissues down to individual cells to (1) infer the gene regulatory networks responsible for maintaining pluripotency and driving cell fate decisions; (2) identify key components of these systems that are particularly sensitive to genetic variation; and (3) define the genetic basis for cellular heterogeneity in these processes. The postdoc will take advantage of existing methods used by the lab, including quantitative trait locus mapping and mediation analysis, and will also be encouraged to develop novel computational approaches to achieve these goals. Candidates with experience at the bench will have the opportunity to validate their computational predictions with mice or cell lines in our wet lab.   The Munger Lab strives to be an open, collaborative, diverse, and supportive scientific environment, and all members of the lab are expected to do their part to achieve these goals. Dr. Munger is committed to providing post-doctoral associates and graduate students with the interdisciplinary training necessary to be successful independent scientists in the genomic era. Munger Lab members are encouraged to participate in outreach and education opportunities, and to be active citizens in their scientific and local communities.   The Jackson Laboratory (http://www.jax.org) is recognized internationally for its excellence in research, unparalleled mouse resources, outstanding training environment characterized by scientific collaboration, and exceptional core services - all within a spectacular setting adjacent to Acadia National Park.
