*** this position has been closed and new applications are no longer accepted. ***

A postdoctoral position is available to work on the development, analysis and application of quantitative models of dynamic cellular phenotypes in mathematical oncology. The position will be jointly supervised by Professor Jasmine Foo (School of Mathematics, University of Minnesota) and Professor Shannon Mumenthaler (Ellison Institute, University of Southern California). It is anticipated that the postdoctoral researcher will spend time at both the University of Minnesota and the Ellison Institute/USC. This position is partially supported by the NIH and involves close collaboration with a vibrant, interdisciplinary team of mathematicians, engineers and biologists.
