Position Description:    

The Department of Mathematics at Dartmouth College invites applications for one postdoctoral appointment that can start as early as September 1, 2022. These positions will be under the direction of Ethan Levien.

Successful applicants will have the opportunity to work on a wide range of problems at the intersection of applied mathematics and biology. Potential research topics include (but are not limited to): Exploring how the architecture of gene regulatory networks constrains adaptive evolution, analyzing single-cell data to learn how growth is regulated in cancer cells, building coarse-grained models of microbial infections to motivate novel treatment protocols. There is also the opportunity to work on fundamental problems in stochastic processes and statistics motivated by these problems.

Applicants must hold (or expected to hold by the start date of their appointment) a PhD in Mathematics, Physics, Biology or a related field. The ideal candidate will be highly motivated and able to work both independently and collaboratively. In addition, they will have a research background in one or more of the following subject areas: stochastic processes, statistics, statistical mechanics, biophysics, evolutionary dynamics, or complex systems.
