Default Postdoctoral Research Position in Bioinformatics / Cancer Epigenomics

An NIH-funded Postdoctoral research position is available immediately in the Dan L. Duncan Cancer Center at Baylor College of Medicine, one of the top medical schools in the United States. The successful candidate is expected to develop bioinformatics algorithms to interpret epigenome and transcriptome data from next-generation sequencing technologies. This position also offers many opportunities for collaborations with leading experimental biologists and physician scientists in translational biomedical research, including but not limited to cancer, stem cells and aging.

Qualified candidate should have 1) a Ph.D. degree in Bioinformatics, Genomics, Statistics, Computer Science, Physics, or a related field; 2) solid skills in at least one programming language (python, perl, R or C/C++); 3) practical experience in large-scale bioinformatic data analysis; 4) strong ability to communicate scientific material. Training in molecular biology is preferred and extensive experience in Bioinformatics/Computational Biology is a plus. Salary will be highly competitive and commensurate with experience.
