Postdoc position in Computational Genomics
Applications are invited for a postdoc position in computational genomics in Jian Ma’s lab at the Computational Biology Department in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University (http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~jianma/) The research focus will be method development in computational genomics. Potential projects include nuclear genome organization, comparative genomics, gene regulation, and single cell biology. In addition to the R01 supported project, the lab is also involved in several NIH large-scale projects, including 4D Nucleome, HuBMAP, and the Somatic Cell Genome Editing program. The candidate will be expected to participate in both novel algorithm development and data analysis.
- A PhD in computational biology, computer science, electrical engineering, or relevant areas. Strong background in machine learning is preferred.
- Experience with high-throughput sequencing data.
- Strong programming skills. Comfortable in a linux environment.
The term for this position is flexible but most likely will be 3 years.
Interested applicants should submit a CV with publication list, a brief research statement, and contact information for three references through email (jianma at cs dot cmu dot edu). Applicants are also strongly encouraged to apply to the Lane Fellow Program:
