How to apply
Contact Fabio at [email protected]:
Postdocs: Send a CV, a description of research interests, and the names and contact information for at least two references. There are many fellowships out there.
Honours students: We generally welcome candidates motivated to mix computational and molecular biology projects. Send one paragraph of research interest and one about your favourite lecture.
Research interns (computational): We are always considering highly motivated research interns to work on a number of computational problems in single cell systems biology. Examples of projects: interpretable decision trees to navigate cell atlases, identify potent antibodies against dengue virus, compressing cell atlas representations, learning the language of immune cells via ligand-receptor analysis.
Research interns (experimental): We are considering an experimental research intern to study outlier cells that behave differently from the mass via time-lapse microscopy.
We actively encourage people with underrepresented backgrounds (e.g. of aboriginal or Torres Strait island descent, minority groups, LGBTQ) to apply and promise to create a welcoming learning environment irrespective of social background.
