    Opportunity: Postdoc bioinformatics deep learning Texas Medical Center @ UTHealth Science Center -- Houston, TX (US)
    Submitted by Zhongming Zhao; posted on Friday, April 23, 2021

    Submitter

    BACKGROUND

    Postdoctoral positions are available in Dr. Zhongming Zhao's Bioinformatics and Systems Medicine Laboratory (BSML, www.uth.edu/bioinfo/), Center for Precision Health, School of Biomedical Informatics, University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth). The successful candidate is expected to join an established bioinformatics team. The ongoing projects in BSML focus on precision medicine, functional roles of genetic variants in complex disease, next-generation sequencing and single cell omics, deep learning, and regulatory networks. Integrative genomics and deep learning approaches are often applied. Funding (multiple NIH grants, CPRIT, and lab/center/professorship startup) is available to support this position for 3+ years and promotion to faculty positions is possible. The candidate will have the opportunity to access many high throughput datasets and interact with investigators across UTHealth and Texas Medical Center. The lab is highly productive (>350 papers since 2009) and has an excellent post-doctoral training track record (e.g. 24 former postdocs are currently faculty members, two received Young Investigator Awards from national foundations, two received CPRIT Scholar faculty recruitment, one NIH K99 awardee, one received NIH MIRA grant, and three were finalists for the Vanderbilt University Postdoc of the Year Award). Recent publications appeared or accepted in journals such as Nature, Nature Medicine, Nature Neurosciences, Nature Communications, Nature Machine Intelligence, Cancer Discovery, Genome Research, Genome Biology, Genome Medicine, NAR, Advances Science, GigaScience, etc.

    The BSML lab is part of the new Center for Precision Health (CPH), a joint enterprise by the School of Biomedical Informatics and School of Public Health, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. The center is established in UTHealth in response to the emerging need of precision health and artificial intelligence. The center focuses on precision cancer medicine, pharmacogenomics, deep learning, and translational bioinformatics. UTHealth is part of the world-renowned Texas Medical Center located in cosmopolitan Houston, Texas, the fourth largest city in the United States. SBMI is the first School of its kind and one of the largest biomedical informatics programs in the country.

    REQUIREMENTS

    The qualified candidates should be highly motivated in research and have a Ph.D. in bioinformatics, quantitative science, computational biology, genetics, molecular biology, pharmacology, or related field upon the job start date. The successful candidate should have some experience in analyzing high-throughput genomic data and proven skills in at least one programming language (e.g., Perl, Python, R, or C/C++). Good understanding of genetics or molecular biology is a plus, but not required. For more information about our research, please visit the web site www.uth.edu/bioinfo/.

    PREFERENCES

    Salary and Benefits: Salary are commensurate with the NIH pay level, and can be higher with strong research experience. Promotion to other positions is available too. All postdocs are provided with the benefits according to the university standard (medical and dental insurance, retirement, etc.).
