The laboratory of Professor Roy Dar (http://dar.bioengineering.illinois.edu/) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign focuses on the fundamentals and applications of biological noise in gene circuits and networks for decision-making, drug screening, and viral-host relationships. Dr. Dar is affiliated with the Biophysics and Electrical Engineering departments, and the Institute for Genomic Biology, so members of his research group gain valuable interdisciplinary research experience.
A representative list of recent projects and publications include:
Noise Drug Screening and Modulation:
Our lab currently consists of a postdoc, 4 graduate students, and 4 undergrads.
The ideal applicant should have but is not limited to:
A PhD degree in a related field (systems biology, virology, molecular biology, biophysics, bioinformatics etc) received in the last 3 years.
Strong quantitative background in systems biology and computation.
Computational genomics experiences (high throughput sequence or perturbation RNAseq, scRNA-seq, and microarray analysis, etc.).
Experimental background in BSL2 environment.
Strong programming skills: Matlab, (Python | C | C++ | Java), R.
Interested applicants should submit a cover letter with CV to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line “<LAST NAME>: Postdoctoral application”.
