We are looking for highly motivated graduate/undergraduate students and postdocs to join our team to conduct cutting-edge research in bioinformatics.

Postdoctoral Fellow

We have an immediate opening for a postdoctoral fellow to work on NIH-funded research in bioinformatics. Our lab is dedicated to developing integrative computational tools that leverage multi-omics biological and clinical datasets to infer disease-associated genes, regulatory interactions and patient-specific drug response. The successful candidate will join a multidisciplinary team to work on cutting-edge research projects to apply data mining/machine learning approaches on high dimensional biological and clinical datasets. The initial appointment is one year with the possibility of renewal based on performance.

Qualifications

  • Ph.D. in Computer Science, Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, or related field with a strong research background in machine learning, statistics, genomics, or a closely related field
  • Strong first-author publication track-record in bioinformatics
  • Experience analyzing high dimensional biological datasets, particularly next-generation sequencing data
  • Demonstrated experience with the application of supervised and unsupervised machine learning methods to biological datasets
  • Proficiency in software development skills, including programming skills in R and/or Python, expertise with documentation, version control, and code releases
  • Expertise in Linux and high-performance computing environments
  • Strong communication and scientific writing skills
  • Ability to learn quickly and apply new analytic techniques

To apply, provide a CV, a cover letter highlighting research interests and expertise, and the names and contact information for three references via email to Dr. Bozdag.
