Opportunity: BIOINFORMATICS/Computational Genomics Postdoctoral Fellow @ Columbia University -- New York, NY (US)
Submitted by Chaolin Zhang; posted on Thursday, November 29, 2012
BACKGROUND:
Dr. Chaolin Zhang laboratory at Columbia University Medical Center is seeking Postdoctoral fellows to conduct NIH-funded studies of RNA regulatory circuitry in the mammalian nervous system. The Zhang laboratory is a newly formed lab in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics (BMB), the Columbia Initiative in Systems Biology (CISB), the Center for Motor Neuron Biology and Disease (MNC), and the Columbia Stem Cell Initiative (CSCI). Using a combination of biochemistry, molecular biology, and high-throughput quantitative and integrative approaches, the Zhang Laboratory studies how proteins and RNA interact to form regulatory networks in the nervous system at the mechanistic and systems level. These networks are increasingly shown to be essential to understand the mammalian complexity manifested in evolutionary-developmental (evo-devo) processes and in neuronal disorders. More information about the Zhang laboratory can be found at http://zhanglab.c2b2.columbia.edu.

REQUIREMENTS:
* A Ph.D. degree in Computational or Systems Biology, Bioinformatics, Computational Genomics, Computer Sciences or Physics, or related fields
* A genuine interest in solving complex biological problems using quantitative approaches
* Strong background in statistical modeling and machine learning
* Solid programing skills using C or C++ and one scripting language
* Extensive experience in handling large-scale data, including those from next-generation sequencing, microarrays and genome annotations
* Highly motivated and ability to work independently as well as to collaborate in a group setting
* Excellent written and verbal communication skills
* A minimal of one first-author paper published in related peer-reviewed journals

PREFERENCES:
* Previous experience working with protein-DNA/RNA interaction data and RNA splicing
* Previous experience on comparative genomics
