Technical Administrator - Living Computing Project
The “Living Computing Project” is looking to hire a part time technical administrator to manage the project’s associated websites, oversee its social media platform, and organize meetings and events. This position will require working closely with the “Living Computing Project’s” principal investigator, Prof. Douglas Densmore, as well as Boston University staff and resources to identify and resolve logistical needs for the team. Some of these needs will be technical, such as maintaining and updating the project’s website while others will be administrative, such as communicating announcements and reserving meeting spaces. With that said, strong communication skills are required as well as the ability to independently contact resources and work with other team members.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow - Living Computing Project (Densmore Lab)
The “Living Computing Project” is actively recruiting a full time postdoctoral research fellow to help develop computational paradigms in software to support digital, analog, memory, and communication mechanisms in living systems. Specifically, the researcher will work with principle investigators at Boston University, MIT, and Lincoln Labs to quantify the behavior of bacterial and mammalian synthetic biological systems to create metrics and software tools to forward engineer biological systems. These systems will be created using design principles used to create digital, analog, memory and communication systems in computer science.
