Join Our Team

We are looking for highly motivated graduate/undergraduate students and postdocs to join our team to conduct cutting-edge research in bioinformatics.

Postdoctoral Fellow

To apply, visit https://jobs.untsystem.edu/postings/64799

We have an immediate opening for a postdoctoral fellow to work on NIH-funded research in bioinformatics. Our lab is dedicated to developing integrative computational tools that leverage multi-omics biological and clinical datasets to infer disease-associated genes, regulatory interactions and patient-specific drug response. The successful candidate will join a multidisciplinary team to work on cutting-edge research projects to apply data mining/machine learning approaches on high dimensional biological and clinical datasets. The initial appointment is one year with the possibility of renewal based on performance.

Minimum Qualifications

  • Ph.D. in Computer Science, Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, or closely related field
  • Strong publication record in one or more of the following areas: computational biology/bioinformatics, biomedical informatics, deep learning/machine learning, data mining, biostatistics, or a closely related area.
  • Proficiency in software development skills in programming languages such as R and Python.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Prior research experience in computational biology/bioinformatics/biomedical informatics is preferred. However, strong research experience in developing/applying deep learning/machine learning/data mining/data science methods on other domains/datasets will also be considered.
  • Strong communication and scientific writing skills.
  • Expertise in software engineering with documentation, version control, and code releases.
  • Expertise in Linux and high-performance computing environments.
  • Experience in parallel programming (MPI, GPU, etc.).
  • Proficiency in biostatistical methods.
  • Ability to work independently and in group settings.
  • Ability to learn quickly and apply new analytic techniques.
