    Opportunity: Postdoctoral Scholar -- Physical Bioinformatics @ Pennsylvania State University -- State College, PA (US)
    Submitted by Nabeel Ahmed; posted on Tuesday, July 03, 2018


    A postdoctoral position in Physical Bioinformatics, funded by the National Science Foundation, is available in Ed O'Brien's lab, located at Penn State, University Park. This researcher's efforts will be focused on studying translational control of gene expression through development of bioinformatic analysis tools rooted in the physical sciences to extract translation rates from NGS data, and computational predictions that will be experimentally tested by our collaborators. The O'Brien Lab is a multi-disciplinary team of researchers from the fields of chemistry, physics and bioinformatics who address questions at the cutting-edge of molecular and cellular biology through the development and application of computational and theoretical techniques. These tools include mathematical modeling, simulations and bioinformatic methods. A major effort in the lab is to understand influence of translation kinetics on downstream in vivo protein behavior. Additional information concerning the O'Brien Lab can be found at and


    A Postdoctoral Scholar hired into this position will have strong computational skills, including experience scripting and performing data analyses of next generation sequencing (NGS) data, as well as experience designing computational analyses for answering biological research questions. An education or training in physics or chemistry is strongly preferred.

    The start date for this position is flexible – any time between August and November 2018 is possible. This position requires a Ph.D. by the time of employment.


    Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA
