Watson School of Biological Sciences

Two Postdoctoral Fellows in Computational Genomics / Bioinformatics

Gene regulation networks: This project is to study gene regulation by combining large-scale gene expression pattern recognition with promoter recognition through collaboration with bench scientists. The candidate is required to have good analytical and programming skills as well as general training in computational biology. Experience with cell cycle regulation is a big plus.

Alternative splicing: This project is to identify alternative spliced mRNA transcripts in human and mouse under various conditions. In collaboration with experimental groups, the data will be generated by splicing-chips. In addition to have good statistical and programming skills, the candidate should be able to setup a database with MySQL and necessary web interfaces for storing and displaying experimental data. A good understanding of RNA splicing and RNA motif recognition are real pluses.
