Dear all,

The Cellular Engineering group at IBM Almaden Research Center (CA-USA) is looking for an NSF fully funded postdoctoral research scientist. The position begins immediately. The candidate is expected to apply advanced AI/ML methods in cellular engineering and synthetic biology to understand biological systems and cellular dynamics.

Interested candidates should contact Sara Capponi, PhD, ( with a brief statement of research interest/cover letter, a CV, and contact information of 2-3 references. 

The Cellular Engineering lab (  integrates multidisciplinary methods to understand the basic principles underlying cell functions in order to modify and build cells with designed activity. Our focus is to leverage AI/ML methods for harnessing the power of cells and develop powerful predictive models of cellular structure and function. The candidate is expected to integrate and develop novel AI/ML algorithms to understand the basic principles governing cells in order to modify them and build cells with designed activity. The ideal candidate should have strong background in computational biology and modeling, biophysics, AI/ML methods for biological system analysis and cellular dynamics. Relevant areas of expertise include direct application of machine learning methods to cellular systems.

The Cellular Engineering lab is part of the NSF Center for Cellular Construction in partnership with UC San Francisco, UC Berkeley, Stanford University, SF State University, and the SF Exploratorium. 

Please, share this email with who you think might be interested in the position!
