The laboratory of Dr. Vahedi in the Department of Genetics at the University of Pennsylvania is seeking a Bioinformatician. The University of Pennsylvania is one of the oldest universities in America and, as a member of the Ivy League, one of the most prestigious institutions of higher education.
|The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. or M.Sc. in statistics, bioinformatics, biostatistics, computer science, electrical engineering, or physics. Experience in programming languages such as R, Python, Java, and C++; and proficiency in Linux are required. Experience in high-dimensional genomic analysis i.e. development of next-generation sequencing data analysis tools and pipelines is preferred. Familiarity with human genetics is a plus. The primary research focus of her lab will be on developing novel computational methods for the integration of high-dimensional genomics data sets within the context of immune system.
Her representative publications include:
