Default RA Position in the Chinese University of Hong Kong

Research Associate Position in Bioinformatics
The School of Life Sciences, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

A research associate or research assistant position is available in the Zhong Lab, school of life sciences, the chinese university of hong kong. It is funded by a 3y GRF project to investigate transcription factor and gene expression network using large scale ChIP-Seq and RNA-Seq data. Salary ranges from 14k to 25k HKD per month, depends on qualification and work experience.
The applicants are expected to have a bachelor degree (or higher) in a relevant math/computer science background such as CS, mathematics, statistics, population genetics, bioinformatics, genomics or even particle physics. The applicant would routinely use packages in R or Matlab and program in either Perl, Python or C. Good knowledge in math and statistics is important. Since the wet lab part of the Zhong group mainly focuses on generating high-throughput sequencing data (BS-Seq, RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, small RNA-Seq DNAseI-Seq and HiC), interest in working closely with a NGS team is important. In addition, interests in machine learning and network modeling would be a great bonus!

The Zhong Lab is part of The State Key Laboratory of Agrobiotechnolgoy, in The School of Life Sciences, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. It is a sequencing lab with a strong research focus on crop functional genomics, particularly those related to growth hormones and developmental processes. The key resource and advantage of the lab is the knowhow and in-house capacity of performing Illumina sequencing and the ability of analyze genomic data.
