Genomics and bioinformatics: Postdoctoral fellow, Research technician positions and PhD StudentshipsPosted by: Southern University of Science and Technology of China
Posted date: Nov-16-2016
We are seeking two postdoctoral candidates, a research technician and outstanding PhD candidates for a bioinformatics/genomics/experimental positions.
Work in the Hutchins laboratory involves building models using systematic analysis of gene expression and gene regulation with a view to understand human disease, pluripotency and development. We are particularly interested in transposable elements, long non-coding RNAs and systems biology approaches to understanding global organisation of cells and tissues, along with in vitro modelling of human disease, particularly Crohns disease.
Responsibilities will include the computational analysis of RNA-seq, ChIP-seq and other next generation sequencing data (Illumina, etc) and/or experimental work if required.
This is an excellent opportunity for the prospective candidate. Training will be provided to bridge the gap from either a biological background or a computational background.
The most important criteria is a strong desire to develop as a combined computational biologist and a deep interest in science.
1 BSc. in either biology, computer science or related field, PhD required for postdoc.
2 Enthusiasm to learn and work closely with experimental/computational biologists
1 One or two of Python, Perl, R, and UNIX scripting (bash, awk, etc.)
2 Experience with RNA-seq data analysis (bowtie, tophat, cufflinks, stringtie, etc)
3 Experience with ChIP-seq data analysis (MACS, SISSRS, SICR, DFilter, MANorm etc.)
4 Experience using cluster computers (PBS, LSF, etc).
5 Machine learning (SVM, PCA, MDS, etc)
6 Biological experimental research experience
