Smile Two postdoc positions at the Statistical Bioinformatics Lab of the University of Iowa

The Statistical Bioinformatics Lab of the University of Iowa ( is seeking candidates for two postdoctoral research fellow positions to work on transcriptomics and proteomics analyses. Possible topics to work on include but not limited to:

i) Methodology research of Third Generation Sequencing (TGS) (especially for PacBio and Oxford Nanopore sequencing). Hybrid sequencing (Second Generation Sequencing (SGS) + TGS) and TGS-alone methodology research are our research interest.

ii) Stem cell transcriptome analysis. Au lab is applying the hybrid sequencing method on ESC, iPSC and preimplantation embryo, to deeply study the transcriptome differences between stem cells and find new pluripotency markers.

iii) Proteomics (Protein identification and novel splice detections from high-throughput Mass Spec). Au lab is developing statistical methods for Integration of Mass Spec and sequencing data, in order to solve difficult proteomics problems.

The postdoctoral fellows will develop statistical and computational/algorithmic methods for analyses and integration of large-scale, multi-species genomic/transcriptomic/proteomic data from diverse biological and clinical samples, including Second/Third Generation Sequencing and Mass Spec data. He/she will have the opportunity to collaborate with internationally recognized biomedical scientists at University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine, Stanford University and Pacific Biosciences.

The applicants should have a Ph.D. degree in bioinformatics, biostatistics or closely related fields. Strong ability in computer programming (python/perl, C/C++, R) or statistical analysis is essential. An established track record in sequencing analysis is a significant plus.

The Carver College of Medicine of University of Iowa is among the top ten public medical schools in National Institutes of Health funding. The University-owned teaching hospital is one of the largest in the United States. The Department of Internal Medicine and the College of Medicine house internationally and nationally recognized centers across the biomedicine disciplines. The University of Iowa is located in Iowa City, a vibrant community located in the rolling hills of southeastern Iowa. The community offers excellent nationally ranked primary and secondary schools, quality entertainment, literary, musical and cultural opportunities, and Big 10 sporting events.

Interested candidates should send a CV and names of three referees to Prof. Kin Fai Au, 3291 CBRB, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA, 52242, or email:
