*** the listing date or deadline for this position has passed. ***

We are seeking a postdoctoral team member for work in Statistical Inference in Biophysics. The positions are full-time, fiscal-year (12-month), benefits-eligible appointments with no tenure implications. Start date is flexible.

The successful candidate will work with Dr. Pressé to develop strategies to infer dynamical models of processes from complex data sets--with resolution down to the single molecule level--inside living systems. Briefly, our goal is to use tools of Computational Statistics and Neural Nets to unravel single molecule dynamics in crowded environments as well as their interactions leading up to protein complex assembly kinetics and function. We infer models from state-of-the-art imaging data sets. As such, our work fosters cross-disciplinary knowledge of optics, computational statistics, numerical analysis, photophysics and biophysics. This postdoc hired here will collaborate closely with experimentalists and graduate students.

Minimum qualifications: Applicants should hold a doctorate in Statistics, Applied Mathematics, Physics, Physical Chemistry or related discipline by the time of appointment, but no earlier than five years before the start date. Strong programming skills are required.

Desired qualifications: Knowledge in the following areas is helpful but not required: Computational Statistics, Python/Matlab, Stochastic Processes, and Machine Learning. Group website: To apply, please send electronically to the following materials: (a) a cover letter, (b) a CV including a full publication list, (c) the names and contact details of three references, (d) a statement addressing how your contributions to diversity and inclusion will advance ASU’s commitment to inclusive excellence. For more information about the position, please contact The initial review of applications will begin October 1, 2021, if not filled; applications will be reviewed every week thereafter until the search is closed.
