A 3-year postdoctoral position funded by the Centre for Molecular Medicine Norway (NCMM) is available in Anthony Mathelier Group (Computational Biology & Gene Regulation). The group is part of NCMM - the Norwegian node of the Nordic EMBL Partnership for molecular medicine - and develops computational methods and tools to analyze the regulation of gene expression and the mechanisms by which it can be disrupted in human diseases such as cancer. More information about the group can be found at http://mathelierlab.com.
We seek a highly motivated individual with a track-record of computational models and tools development dedicated to the analysis of high throughput sequencing data.We are looking for applicants excited about combining life sciences and computation to analyze gene expression regulation. The ideal candidate will be stimulated by the development and application of computational methods for (1) improving the prediction of TFBSs; (2) predicting TF gene targets; or (3) prioritizing cis-regulatory variants dysregulating miRNA transcriptional regulation with downstream impact on the gene regulatory program in cancer.The successful candidate will be collaborative, independent, and should have experience in statistical / machine learning modeling and computer programming (mainly Python and/or R) dedicated to the analysis of large-scale genomics data. The position is open to applicants within three (3) years of completion of a PhD in computational biology / bioinformatics or computer science.
How to apply
Applicants should include a cover letter outlining motivations with a brief statement about career goals, a CV with list of publications, copies of certificates and contact information of three referees.
