Brazer Resistance Job Description Sample
Postdoctoral Associate Boston University School Of Public Health, Department Of Global Health Social Innovation On Drug Resistance Postdoctoral Program
Drs. Jacob Bor, Helen Jenkins, Karen Jacobson, and William MacLeod are seeking a postdoctoral associate for a project on the Social and Behavioral Drivers of Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis.
The postdoctoral associate will work with the PIs (Bor, Jenkins, Jacobson, MacLeod) on an interdisciplinary project studying the roles of patient migration and treatment adherence on the epidemic of drug-resistant TB in South Africa. TB is the leading cause of death in South Africa, yet the country's response is hamstrung by an epidemic of drug resistance, which commands over half of the TB budget and is associated with worse outcomes.
The postdoctoral associate will have opportunities to engage in quantitative analysis of big data (laboratory data), spatial epidemiologic research, and mathematical infectious disease modeling with a strong behavioral component. In addition to working as part of a team on the main project, they will have the opportunity to work independently. The post-doctoral fellow will have access to teaching opportunities, regular seminars in infectious diseases, biostatistics, and global health, and additional data and research opportunities at Boston University.
As part of the Social Innovation on Drug Resistance (SIDR) Postdoctoral Program, the associate will be part of a growing, interdisciplinary community of researchers from across Boston University's schools and colleges. Through SIDR's workshops and other activities, the associate will become part of a network of top scholars in the multiple disciplines involved in SIDR. The program will provide a forum for the associate to present their work as it develops, and provides the associate with the benefit of being attached to two leading research entities with a strong global and domestic presence.
This is a two-year position, with a start date on or after July 1, 2019.
Key responsibilities of the position will include:
Statistical analysis of newly-linked laboratory data to investigate the role of migration and treatment adherence in South Africa's epidemic of drug resistant TB
Developing an infectious disease model for drug resistant TB to account for patient behavior related to migration and treatment adherence
Using the model to estimate impact and cost-effectiveness of different interventions to improve patient tracking and retention in care
Meeting biweekly with the research team, including the four PIs
Leading and contributing to several peer-reviewed publications
Supervising graduate-level research assistants on the project
We look for a high-potential candidate with a recent PhD or equivalent degree in epidemiology, biostatistics, economics, data science, or other quantitative field. Candidates must have expertise in mathematical modeling and strong programming skills.
Strong written and oral communication skills are required. Applicants should be able to work independently and have demonstrated ability to work well as part of a team.
About The Social Innovation on Drug Resistance (SIDR) Program
SIDR is an interdisciplinary program focused on the interaction of human behavior and drug-resistant infections. SIDR was created by The Institute for Health System Innovation & Policy and the Combating Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria Biopharmaceutical Accelerator, or CARB-X, to further the understanding of how human behavior affects the evolution of drug-resistant microbes and develop the interdisciplinary, social science-based solutions necessary to address the rising threat of drug-resistance.
By convening a diverse community of scholars, funding research, and developing the next generation of scientists, SIDR seeks to advance these goals. Learn more about SIDR at www.bu.edu/ihsip/sidr.
As an employee of Boston University, the postdoctoral associate will be eligible for a variety of outstanding benefit programs offered through the university. To learn more, visit www.bu.edu/benefits.

The candidate will be expected to partner closely with our bioinformatics, pathology and "omics" teams onsite and will participate in internal and external scientific meetings, presenting their data and critically evaluating emerging scientific literature and technologies to contribute to the projects they are assigned to. We are seeking a self-motivated, proactive contributor for a dynamic, fast-paced multidisciplinary team.
Qualifications / Essential Skills
MD/PhD or PhD in cancer biology, or equivalent advanced relevant biology degree
Experienced scientist with 3-5 years' of post-graduate research experience, with a minimum of 2 years post-doctoral studies in a clinical or translational setting
Candidate will have in-depth knowledge / understanding of the cancer therapeutic landscape utilizing NGS platforms to tease out mechanistic insights with respect to response and resistance to a given therapeutic regimen
Participated in clinical studies to better characterize the molecular underpinnings of therapeutic resistance in patient cohorts and correlation with clinical outcome
A track record of independent critical thinking and scientific achievement demonstrated by first authorship in recent high impact publications
Exposure to cancer immunotherapy including immune-checkpoint blockade with knowledge of current therapeutic landscape is highly desirable
Recent experience in supervising bench scientists in an academic or industry setting is desirable
Experience in balanced experimental design, data visualization and working knowledge of NGS pipelines and statistical analysis tools are desirable
Excellent interpersonal skills and ability to communicate, both written and oral effectively and efficiently within the BMS organization and with external partners/collaborators
Thrives in fast-paced, dynamic work environment, bringing a pro-active mentality to the role
We follow the science and we'll continue to invest in translational medicine research, deepen our understanding of disease biology and uncover insights about predictive biomarkers with the ultimate goal of making precision medicine a reality for more patients.
