Opportunity: Postdoctoral Research Position in Epigenomics at Columbia University--New York, NY (US)
Submitted by Fatemeh Haghighi, Ph.D.; posted on Wednesday, September 26, 2007
BACKGROUND:
A postdoctoral position is available in computational epigenomics in the laboratory of Professor Fatemeh Haghighi at Columbia University and the New York State Psychiatric Institute. The research is focused on the development and application of computational and statistical algorithms for epigenetic analysis of neuropsychiatric disorders. Studies involve bioinformatic analysis of data from whole genome DNA methylation profiles to detect differentially methylated regions associated with disease and their potential function through genomic datamining. Other large dataset discovery problems are also of interest including mRNA gene expression and histone methylation.

REQUIREMENTS/PREFERENCES:
Job requirements include a strong quantitative background with a Ph.D. in bioinformatics/computational biology, computer science, applied mathematics, statistics, or physics; and significant experience in scientific computation working on biological problems. Candidates with a PhD in the biological sciences with strong quantitative training will also be considered. Priority will be given to candidates with demonstrated expertise in bioinformatics and database design, sequence analysis including database similarity searches, sequence alignments, as well as motif and evolutionary analysis. A good publication record is preferable.

TERMS: 2 years with possible extension.

LOCALE: New York, NY, USA

COMPENSATION: Commensurate with qualification and Experience
