Opportunity: Postdoc Position in COMPUTATIONAL SYSTEMS BIOLOGY @ Duke-NUS--Singapore
Submitted by Steve Rozen; posted on Tuesday, December 30, 2008
BACKGROUND:
The laboratory of Steve Rozen (http://purl.com/STEVEROZEN/) invites applications for a 2-3 year postdoctoral position at Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore, with the possibility of renewal. Our research centers on (1) human genetics and human copy number variation and (2) generation and computational analysis of 'omics' scale data with the aim of advancing our understanding of biological function. More broadly, our lab uses advanced computational and quantitative analysis in pursuit of the most interesting and important biological questions.

RESPONSIBILITIES:
Self-directed biological research at the post-doctoral level.

REQUIREMENTS:
The ideal applicant will have:
- Ph.D. in a relevant field.
- Strong computational and quantitative analytical skills, including programming in a language such as perl, python, Java, C, R, etc.
- Experience in biological research using 'omics'-scale data such as expression-array data, yeast-2-hybrid data, CHIP-seq data, etc.
- First author publications in English.
- Good communication skills, including proficiency in English.
- Intellectual curiosity and determination to do the best possible research.
- A primary interest in answering biological questions.

LOCALE:
Duke-NUS (http://www.duke-nus.edu.sg/index.php) is a new medical school that is part of both Duke University and the National University of Singapore. We offer a US-style program of graduate medical education. Our faculty consists of >40 energetic biomedical researchers and is still growing. In spring, 2009 we will occupy a new, dedicated building, with state-of-the-art experimental laboratory facilities and a Linux compute cluster with 20 quad-core nodes. We also have access to additional resources for high-throughput biology and scientific computing within Singapore.

Singapore is a modern and extremely livable city-state of 4.5 million people located near the equator and close to China, India, Japan and Australia. We are culturally diverse, with major influences from China, Malaysia, India, and Europe. The primary language of science and business is English.

COMPENSATION:
We offer competitive compensation and a relocation allowance to our postdoctoral fellows.

HOW TO APPLY:
Please submit a letter of interest, CV, and the names and contact information of three references to steve.rozen (at) duke-nus.edu.sg with the subject line: postdoctoral application systems biology.

DEADLINE:
We will consider candidates until the position is filled.
