Opportunity: Computational Epigenomics postdoctoral position @ USC -- Los Angeles, CA (US)
Submitted by Andrew Smith; posted on Saturday, December 08, 2012
The laboratory of Dr. Andrew D. Smith has two open positions for postdoctoral research associates to work in the area of Computational Epigenomics. We are involved in multiple projects to elucidate specific functions of DNA methylation, histone modifications and non-coding RNA in early development and cancer. Successful candidates will design new algorithms and statistical methods for analyzing large-scale data sets, with the aim of answering specific biological questions. The data analysis will involve massive datasets produced specifically for our projects and hold much promise for discovery. Successful candidates will require creativity in designing novel computational methods to meet the unique analytical challenges presented by emerging experimental methods.

* PhD in Computer Science, Computational Biology, Bioinformatics, Statistics, Applied Math or Physics
* Deep interest in solving biological problems
* Solid programming skills and experience with C or C++
* Ability to work comfortably in a Unix/Linux environment

This position will be particularly suitable to candidates interested in
* Working with novel epigenomic data, produced specifically for our research projects
* Interacting directly with experimentalists producing data using cutting-edge technologies
* Having opportunities to contribute to experimental design decisions
* Gaining experience working with massive datasets from second-generation sequencing technologies
* Applying quantitative methods in projects with potential biomedical impact

Laboratory of Dr. Andrew D. Smith, Program in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, University of Southern California
