The recently-launched Allen Institute for Immunology is seeking outstanding biostatistics research scientists with expertise in single-cell transcriptomics, epigenomics, and high-dimensional mass & flow cytometry.
The institute is launching a series of collaborations focused on understanding the behavior of the immune system in autoimmune diseases and cancer. We are therefore especially interested in individuals with a background in human immunology. For details of the Institute’s research plans and partners, see https://alleninstitute.org/what-we-do/immunology/.
