A 2-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 the NCMM - an EMBL Nordic partner 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.
A postdoctoral position funded by the Centre for Molecular Medicine Norway (NCMM) is available in the Computational Biology & Gene Regulation group leaded by Anthony Mathelier. The position is available for two (2) years. We seek a highly motivated individual with a track-record of statistical models and computational 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 prioritizing cis-regulatory variants dysregulating the transcription of microRNAs with downstream impact on the cellular gene regulatory program alteration leading to cancer. The candidate will be collaborating with researchers at the Oslo University Hospital and the developed tools will be applied to in house data sets.
The successful candidate will be collaborative, independent, and should have experience in Bayesian statistical modeling and computer programming (mainly R and Python) 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, and three referees contact information.
The postdoctoral position will be placed as SKO 1352 (position code) postdoctoral research fellow with salary depending on qualifications within step 57-65 (NOK 486 100 – 567 100 per year).
The University of Oslo has an agreement for all employees, aiming to secure rights to research results and intellectual property.
