Job Opportunities

Biostatistician II. This is a staff position to join our growing team in the CHSI. The successful applicant will help develop analytic pipelines for complex immunological data sets, and help immunological researchers develop robust experimental designs and analyze their data. No immunology knowledge is necessary, and training in immunology will be provided via seminars and journal clubs. Experience working with complex data sets (e.g. expertise in R tidyverse/Bioconductor or Python pandas/scikit-learn) is an advantage. Application details available at this link.

Student Projects

We welcome graduate students looking for rotations or thesis topics in quantitative immunology. Current research topics are listed below. Please contact the faculty member directly if you are interested.
