    Opportunity: Postdoctoral Position in Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Genomics (High-throughput Sequencing Analysis) @ West Virginia University -- Morgantown, WV (US)
    Submitted by Gangqing Hu; posted on Tuesday, February 25, 2020

    BACKGROUND

    A Bioinformatics Postdoc position is currently available in Dr. Hu's lab at the department of Microbiology, Immunology, and Cell Biology, West Virginia University (openwetware.org/wiki/Hu). The lab focuses on mechanisms of epigenetic regulation of immune cells and cancer cells through integrative analysis of multi-omics data (public data and in-house data) and new tool developments (see Immunity 2018, PMID:29466755; Nat Methods 2018, PMID: 30150754; Nat Immunology 2017, PMID: 28759003; Nat Immunology 2013, PMID: 24056746; Cell Stem Cell 2013, PMID: 23260488; Cell 2012, PMID: 23021216).

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    This position will study epigenetic mechanisms of drug resistance of multiple myeloma driven by the bone marrow microenvironment. The job also expects that the candidate devote 50% of time to contribute to team science across the university for collaborative research through genomic data analysis. The candidate will analyze next-generation sequencing data, including but not limited to RNA-Seq, ATAC-Seq, Hi-C, 16S rna-seq, microRNA, exome-seq and whole genome sequencing (WGS), generated in the lab, by collaborators, and/or from public databases.

    REQUIREMENTS

    The candidate should have demonstrated strong programming skills on sequence analysis, statistical modeling, and/or machine learning. Strong candidates must have a PhD in the area of applied mathematics, bioinformatics, biostatistics, computational biology, or other related backgrounds. The candidate should have demonstrated strong programming skills on sequence analysis, statistical modeling, and/or machine learning.

    PREFERENCES

    Having first-author research publications in the field of sequence analysis especially on 16S rna-Seq (microbiome), exome-seq, and WGS is a strong plus.

    TERMS

    One year term renewable
