    BACKGROUND

    About the Job:
    The Institute for Health Informatics at the University of Minnesota invites applications for multiple Postdoctoral Associate positions from candidates with a Ph.D or equivalent degree in bioinformatics or related disciplines. The translational genomics and bioinformatics group directed by Dr. Steven S. Shen, M.D., Ph.D., is seeking outstanding scientists who are interested in working in a research program studying the genome wide mapping of epigenetic elements and the mechanism of gene expression regulation in mammals.

    The ideal candidate should have experience in bioinformatics and computer programming, especially NGS data analysis. Familiarity with public DNA/RNA sequencing data repository will be needed to study the distribution of genome-wide epigenetic elements and the correlation with gene expression control. The candidate must have the ability to define research questions and develop experiment designs to address those questions. The candidate should have experience presenting research results through publications and presentations.

    About the Department:
    The Institute for Health Informatics at the University of Minnesota is a well-balanced program with significant achievements in teaching, clinical programs and research. The University of Minnesota is one of the highest ranked public universities in research.
