The Altschuler and Wu laboratories welcome exceptional applicants interested in working at the cutting edge of quantitative biology and drug discovery.  We are excited to talk to candidates from a wide range of scientific backgrounds committed to high impact science - let us know how you think you could fit into our research.

We are committed to nurturing a collaborative, diverse and inclusive work environment.


Interested candidates should submit a brief one-page description of their research interests, resume, and contact information for three references.

NEW: Postdoctoral positions are now available to investigate ALS.
