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 group 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 cancers. See for further information. The position is available for two (2) years (with possibility for extension).

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 analyzing the interplay between transcription factor binding and DNA methylation in cancers. The candidate will be collaborating with researchers at the Oslo University Hospital, where the group is also affiliated, and the developed tools will be applied to in house and publicly available data sets.

The successful candidate will be collaborative, independent, with strong enthusiasm for research, and should have experience in computer programming (mainly Python, R, and bash) dedicated to the analysis of large-scale genomics data. Being familiar with gene expression regulation in general, DNA methylation, and transcription factor binding is an advantage. The position is open to applicants with a PhD in computational biology/bioinformatics, computer science, or related. We offer stimulating environment with excellent working and social benefits.

How to apply

Applicants should include a cover letter outlining motivations with a statement about career goals, a CV with list of publications, and three referees contact information.

Other information

The postdoctoral position will be placed as SKO 1352 (position code) postdoctoral research fellow with salary NOK 490 900 – 569 000 per year depending on qualifications.
