    • Indiana University, Bloomington

    The Biocomplexity Institute ( at Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering as part of its participation in Purdue University’s NSF-funded EMBRIO Institute, has one open postdoctoral position developing multicellular, multi-scale mechanistic computational models of wound closure, epiboly and early embryonic development in zebrafish. The candidate will work with faculty and student researchers to develop Cellular Potts and particle-based biomechanical models of zebrafish tissue dynamics and implement them in the CompuCell3D and Mechanica modeling frameworks. The models will be used to perform virtual experiments exploring mechanistic hypotheses about the interplay of biochemical signaling and mechanics leading to emergent regulation in tissue dynamics. The candidate will receive training from members of the Biocomplexity and EMBRIO Institutes and relevant collaborators in developmental and cellular biology and computational, mathematical, agent-based, and biological modeling.

    Minimum Qualifications: 

    A PhD is required by start of appointment, in biology, bioengineering, biophysics, mathematical biology or a closely-related field. Commitment to and expertise in developmental biology are essential. Prior publications in agent-based modeling, especially multi-cellular or biological network modeling are required. Experience with the Python programming language and dynamical systems are helpful but not required.

    Salary:  Commensurate with qualifications and experience, plus benefits.

    Rank: Postdoctoral Fellow (RSP).

    Appointment Type:  Twelve-month full-time non-tenure track appointment, with potential to be extended annually for a maximum term of 4 years, subject to satisfactory performance and funding; The position is currently funded for five years.

    Apply Online at:

    Special Instructions:  Interested applicants should upload a letter of interest, a statement of prior research experience and professional interests, a CV, and contact information for three professional references using the application link above.

    Questions may be sent to

    For Full Consideration Apply By: October 7, 2021.

    Ideal Start Date for position: November 30th, 2021.
