Boyd Lab Openings

(Updated 4/28/2021)

Two Postdoctoral Fellow positions are open in the laboratory of Dr. Scott Boyd at Stanford University School of Medicine to carry out research at the interface of computational biology and immunology. The laboratory has a strong history of support and mentorship of women in science, and trainees from diverse backgrounds including those underrepresented in science.

Projects can offer both computational biology and ‘wet lab’ experimental work, depending on the postdoctoral fellow’s preference, and will involve close interactions with a number of clinical and basic science collaborators at Stanford and elsewhere.

Successful applicants will have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent, and have interest and experience in any or all of the following areas: computational biology, bioinformatics, biotechnology, immunology and structural biology. Applications from candidates with experience in other areas of quantitative science are also welcomed. Capacity for independent work, effective teamwork, excellent written and oral communication skills, and a strong research background are required. Proficiency in any of R, python, SQL databases and cloud computing  is desirable.

The Boyd lab studies healthy and pathogenic human immune responses in the context of vaccination, infectious diseases, and allergy, using a combination of antigen receptor sequence analysis, antibody functional characterization, and cellular immunology experiments.
