    Opportunity: Postdoctoral Position in bioinformatics / computational biology @ University of Nevada, Las Vegas -- Las Vegas, NV (US)
    Submitted by Mira Han; posted on Friday, November 15, 2019


    • 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.
