Dr. Pressé lab is seeking theory/computational postdoctoral team members for work at Arizona State University, home to the largest contingent of Biophysical faculty in the USA and a vibrant environment in which to do Biophysical research. This position is a full-time, fiscal year appointment and the 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 unravel dynamical laws governing single molecule behavior in crowded environments from state-of-the-art imaging data sets. As such, our work trains postdocs and fosters cross-disciplinary knowledge across fields including optics, computational statistics, and biophysics. The postdoc hired herein will collaborate closely with experimentalists and graduate students. Group website:

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.
