Computational postdoc in human genomics and other omics (available immediately!)|
Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoctoral (i.e., postdoc) position in my lab at Mayo Clinic. This is a one to three year position with the possibility for a potential extension. The choice of project will depend on the applicant's interests and skills, however, the research must be purely computational and focus on one of the following main fields of computational biology: population/personal human omics, cancer omics, single cell and somatic omics, and the analysis of next-generation sequencing data. Specific sub-areas of interest are discovery, and the functional annotation of human genomic variants such as SNPs, SNVs, indels, structural variations, retrotransposition, etc.
The ideal applicant will have a Ph.D. in computational biology or bioinformatics, experience in one of the aforementioned research areas, demonstrate a record of peer-reviewed publications, and possess motivation for independent research.
