Postdoctoral Fellows in Computational Biology
Ucar Lab at the Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine is seeking highly-skilled computational scientists to make leading contributions to cutting edge research in genomics.
The Ucar Lab is a computational biology lab specializing in developing data mining and machine learning models with a focus on gene regulation.
Our future projects will focus on integrating and mining diverse functional genomic and epigenetic data to study the dynamics and mechanisms of transcriptional gene regulation.
The ideal candidate will:
- Possess a Ph.D. in computer science, statistics, electrical engineering, physics, biostatistics, or bioinformatics
- Have a proven track record and enthusiasm for conducting research in computational biology
- Be eager to learn new technologies and science
- Be able to learn and work independently, yet collaborate effectively with colleagues.
- Strong background in Data Mining/ Machine Learning/Statistics
- Experience in applying and developing statistical packages in R and/or Matlab.
- Experience with algorithm development and model building
- Experience with programming in C or C++ or Java
- Experience with scripting languages such as Perl and Python, and with the UNIX/LINUX environment
- Experience with the analysis of biological datasets, especially next generation sequencing (NGS) data
- Familiarity with various public databases and data repositories, statistical software tools and packages, bioinformatics algorithms, particularly in the analysis of NGS data
- Strong communication skills and ability to collaborate effectively with other computational and wet-lab scientists.
- Ability to participate in an interdisciplinary and multi-cultural work environment.
The successful candidates are required to live and work in Connecticut with potential visits and training opportunities at the Bar Harbor, Maine campus.
Applications should include a cover letter, CV and a brief statement of research interests along with contact information for three references.
Applications will be mainly considered at the postdoctoral level but more experienced candidates may apply for a senior scientist position.
Please apply online at www.jax.org/careers, requisition #3927 for consideration.
