The Department of Statistical Science at Duke University is offering two postdoc positions under the direction of Li Ma (http://www.stat.duke.edu/~lm186/).

One research area focuses on developing models and methods for high-dimensional compositional data from microbiome sequencing experiments such as 16S and metagenomic shotgun sequencing. Another research area involves developing statistical models and methods for single-cell experiments from immunological studies including flow and mass cytometry data. The main responsibilities of these positions include models/methods development, software implementation, data analysis, and manuscript writing.
