Postdoctoral Fellow – Bioinformatics or Genomics or Neuroscience
Loma Linda University Center for Genomics, Loma Linda, CA, USA
The Center & job descriptions: A postdoctoral position in bioinformatics or genomics or neuroscience is available at the Loma Linda University Center for Genomics (directed by Dr. Charles Wang, MD, PhD, MPH), which was a key testing site for the FDA’s SEQC consortium international collaborative multi-center research projects. Dr. Wang played a leadership role on the SEQC multicenter genomics studies. We recently published three papers in Nature Biotechnology (IF 68.16) including a multicenter study benchmarking single-cell RNA sequencing technologies (https://www.nature.com/collections/fjhdjcdefg). The center is well-equipped with many different NGS genomic tools including single-cell sequencing and spatial genomics as well as cutting-edge bioinformatics infrastructure for genomics, neuroscience and bioinformatics studies. The position is supported by a large genomic and epigenomic 5-year U01 grant recently funded by NIH NIDA, which focuses on the investigating the genomic and epigenomic mechanisms underlying maternal e-cigarette induced abnormal brain development. See our recent novel findings in this paper (https://www.cell.com/iscience/pdf/S2589-0042(22)00958-0.pdf) and our Poster (PSTR064.27) presentation at the 2023 SfN. The candidate will receive training in many aspects of the bioinformatics and will perform bioinformatics data analyses including single-cell sequencing, spatial genomics, RNA-seq transcriptomics, and epigenomics multi-omics data. The candidate also has the opportunity be involved in multiple collaborative projects in the Center and to write and publish papers as the leading author. The candidate is expected to apply various algorithms involving R package/language, Bioconductor, Python, and other bioinformatics tools to the projects.
Required qualifications: A doctoral degree in relevant field such as computational biology, neuroscience, or genomics, is required. Having demonstrated knowledge or experience with data analyses on genomics data including RNA-seq, scRNA-seq, spatial transcriptomics, ATAC-seq, or DNA methylation are a plus. The successful candidate will benefit from an outstanding research environment in our center and opportunities for career development into an independent investigator in academia.
Salary and compensations: A very competitive salary & compensation with the full benefit package plus the great California weather!
Application: Please submit by e-mail a cover letter and curriculum vitae to Dr. Charles Wang at firstname.lastname@example.org. Dr. Wang is available to do an on-site interview meeting at the SfN conference (11/11/2023-11/14/2023).
