    Opportunity: Postdoc and PhD positions available @ University of Nevada, Las Vegas -- Las Vegas, NV (US)
    Submitted by Mira Han; posted on Friday, November 02, 2018


    A postdoctoral position and PhD positions are available in the lab of Mira Han at University of Nevada, Las Vegas and Nevada Institute of Personalized Medicine.

    Research will focus on integrating heterogeneous omics data to predict the tissue origin for metastatic cancer tissues. We are especially interested in integrating RNA and methylation data of non-coding elements and repeat elements.

    Other projects involve investigating the potential regulatory role of repeat elements, through analysis of existing ChIP-seq, eCLIP, RNA-seq and genetic datasets.

    Nevada Institute of Personalized Medicine was just awarded a $11.4M, 5 year Center of Biomedical Research Excellence P20 Grant from NIH in personalized Medicine.

    The position will involve collaboration with other computational biologists and molecular biologists in the Nevada Institute of Personalized Medicine and School of Life Sciences.

    It will also involve assisting in the supervision of graduate and undergraduate students and developing new areas of research.
