The Andorf Lab is seeking a highly motivated analyst to perform research in computational biology and/or focused on the reuse of existing clinical study data. Our research centers around computational approaches in the intersection of clinical and immunological research. One of our goals is to better understand the causes and treatments of atopic disease in general and food allergies in particular. We also work and collaborate on projects in other disease areas, from pregnancy complications to arthritis. Along with original data, we also focus on the re-use of existing laboratory-based and clinical trial-based data sets. One goal of our lab is to enable, demonstrate and utilize the full potential of existing individual participant-level clinical study data. Programming experience is required (preferably in R). Experience in (computational) immunology, especially with the analysis of flow cytometry data, or in working with clinical study data is a strong plus.
