PostDoc or PhD Position in the Henriksson Lab

Understanding CAR T cells through machine learning and advanced bioinformatics

Johan Henriksson, a MIMS group leader, is currently seeking a postdoctoral researcher or PhD student to dissect T cell regulation using single-cell methods and CRISPR screening. While the overall goal is to develop CAR T-cell technology, this position is geared towards sharpening our analysis methods. Of particular interest include better statistics for CRISPR-UMI pooled screens, gene regulation (ATAC-seq, HiC) and gene isoforms (RNA-seq).

Candidates who are strong in any of computer science, mathematics, statistics or machine learning are encouraged to apply. An interest in learning biology is essential and some basic insight will already help plenty. An overview of what we do, and contact information, can be found at
