The lab is a lively and active lab with 13-16 lab members (students and technicians), and is fully computational, with mathematicians, physicists, computer scientists and bioinformaticians collaborating for the development of advanced computational tools, and apply them to a wide range of clinical cases.
We have open positions in three main directions (up to two positions):
- Computational immunology and specifically, the development of advanced machine learning tool for predicting disease state and history from large B and T cell receptor profiles . This work is performed in close collaboration with leading experimental labs. Candidates for these projects should have strong bioinformatics and machine learning background, and the skills to develop new prediction methods.
- Microbiome based machine learning. We are developing prognostic and diagnostic tools from microbiome sequencing projects in collaborations with three leading Israeli experimental labs. Candidates for these projects should have strong bioinformatics and machine learning background, and preferntially microbiology or microbiome experience.
- Bone marrow transplant analysis, and matching algorithms. We work in close collaboration with the national marrow donor program to improve matching algorithms for bone marrow tranplants. Candidates for these projects should have strong computational skills. Experience in the analysis of hemotalogical data and HLA would be an advantage.
