    BACKGROUND

    • A postdoctoral position is 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 understand the biology of transposons and their effects on disease.
    • Other projects involve investigating the potential regulatory role of transposons, 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.
    • Visit the website to find out more at www.unlv.edu/NIPM and www.unlv.edu/lifesciences

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    • The main responsibility will be to apply sequence data analysis to identify differentially regulated transposable elements in disease, and predict elements with regulatory function.
    • The postdoctoral researcher will be able to explore other projects independently in addition to the main project.

    REQUIREMENTS

    • PhD degree in Bioinformatics, Computer Science, Biological Sciences, Mathematics, Biostatistics or related fields
    • Proven skills in programming (Python, R, C/C++) and experience with Linux/Unix environments
