Postdoctoral Associate Position Available – Lab of Dr. Aaron Meyer

A postdoctoral associate position is available in the Department of
Bioengineering at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) to
work in the laboratory of Dr. Aaron Meyer. The Meyer lab is an
interdisciplinary academic research team that utilizes combined
computational and experimental approaches to better understand cancer
cell resistance and innate immune signaling. More information about the
lab is available at Multiple projects are available
within the scope of the lab’s overall focus. A central goal of the lab
is to help its members successfully become independent investigators by
providing trainees with a supportive environment, close mentorship, and
ample resources.

Applicants should hold a Ph.D. degree in Bioengineering, Chemical
Engineering, Computational Biology, or related quantitative biological
sciences field. Must have experience in the following technical areas:
computational methods and tools for analysis, and statistics; and
biological experience in one of the following: molecular biology,
immunology, or cancer biology. Applicants with exceptionally strong
quantitative backgrounds but relatively less experience in biological
sciences will be considered. Strong analytical and problem-solving
skills are highly valued. Seek a highly motivated, independent
individual with excellent documentation skills; strong interpersonal
skills; and the ability to contribute in a multidisciplinary team
setting, prioritize and perform multiple tasks in a dynamic environment,
and execute detailed technical protocols meticulously.

Interested applicants should submit a short cover letter and CV to Dr.
Meyer (). This should include a short description of the
previous project that they are most proud of (science or non-science)
and how it reflects the qualities above.
