As a UW employee, you have a unique opportunity to change lives on our campuses, in our state and around the world. UW employees offer their boundless energy, creative problem solving skills and dedication to build stronger minds and a healthier world.

UW faculty and staff also enjoy outstanding benefits, professional growth opportunities and unique resources in an environment noted for diversity, intellectual excitement, artistic pursuits and natural beauty.

ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT
The Department of Biology is a diverse, dynamic, and growing academic unit, with a very collegial staff.
We are one of the largest academic departments on campus, and we support approximately 80 graduate students, 65 faculty members, 40 postdoctoral scholars, 80 classified and professional staff, and 100 hourly and student hourly employees.

The Department of Biology has an exciting opportunity for a highly qualified Research Scientist/Engineer 2 who will be responsible for computational biochemical modeling in both cardiac and skeletal muscle contraction using Python-based Monte-Carlo Markov models.

POSITION COMPLEXITIES AND IMPACT   
We are seeking to fill a position associated with active two research grants: One grant is from the American Heart Association, focusing on computational modeling for understanding cardiac diseases; the second grant is from the National Institutes of Health. This position is necessary for critical funded research activities by providing computational support for both grants.

This position will require experience with developing and applying machine learning models on both stochastic simulated data as well as experimental data from muscle. The researcher will need experience maintaining a code-base, optimizing run-time of simulations, expanding existing code-base to better simulate muscle bio-chemistry, and experience with cloud computing. The researcher will also be required to collaborate with experimental groups with complimentary research goals. The researcher will also be expected to train others in the use of computational muscle models, as well as assist experimental efforts of other labs by performing muscle simulations or providing computational advice in accordance with the goals of the NIH-supported Center for Translational Muscle Research (CTMR) and in accordance with grans funded by the American Heart Association and future planned NIH and NSF grants.
