The Program for Mathematical Genomics group in the Department of Systems Biology (https://systemsbiology.columbia.edu/the-program-for-mathematical-genomics) is a cross campus interdisciplinary effort that brings together evolutionary biologists, computer scientists, physicists and mathematicians, to uncover the structure of genomic data and to study the maps that link genotype to phenotype. It constitutes a space for the free exchange of ideas and methods of quantitatively-minded scientists with the goal of achieving a quantitative understanding of biological systems. We collaborate with clinicians and public health researchers from around the world to explore several disease systems, including the genetics and epidemiology of infectious diseases, cancer, and the human microbiome; carry out basic biological research in microbial metabolism, protein structure and function; and the modeling of biological networks using biologically-motivated machine learning. We are building a vibrant community of researchers who use their insights and techniques to solve pressing problems in translational and basic biology.
We are now seeking postdoctoral researchers to join a creative team in a collaborative environment developing mathematical techniques for the analysis of high-dimensional, high-throughput biological data.
