Post-doc postions

We have multiple openings for postdoctoral researchers to work on a DARPA-funded human influenza virus project that aims to understand the functional organization of influenza viruses at multiple scales and develop novel evolution-proof antivirals.The project involves modeling influenza at multiple scales of organization, including intracellular dynamics, within-host dynamics, and between-host dynamics. The post-docs will be co-supervised by Prof. Koelle in the Department of Biology at Duke University. Opportunity will be present to interact with the experimental labs at UIUC, Rutgers, and Montana State University that belong to the multidisciplinary team. We encourage applications from highly motivated and creative individuals who have backgrounds in one or more of the following:

  • mathematical modeling,
  • parameter estimation,
  • theoretical biology,
  • population genetics/population ecology, and
  • viral sequence analysis.

Good communication skills are essential. Extensive programing skills/experience will be a plus.

To apply, please send a brief statement of research interests, a CV, and up to 3 publications to Ruian Ke ( We will review applications on a rolling basis.
