Postdoctoral Researcher
University of Pennsylvania
Institute for Biomedical Informatics

We are seeking application for multiple postdoctoral researchers to work on any of the following areas:

1. Modeling of gene regulation and enhancer analysis by integrating functional genomics data from public databases such as ENCODE and FANTOM5, and high-throughput genomic assays such as expression QTL, Hi-C, and Capture-C;

2. Algorithm development and analysis for structural variant and copy number variation calling and association from whole-exome and whole-genome sequencing experiments;

3. Rare variant discovery using whole-exome and whole-genome sequencing experiments, with focus on Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders.

The postdoc(s) will collaborate closely with several groups including the Alzheimer's Disease Sequencing Project (ADSP), NIA Genetics of Alzheimer's Disease Data Storage Site (NIAGADS), Consortium for Alzheimer's Sequencing Analysis (CASA), and Alzheimer’s Disease Genetics Consortium (ADGC), and will be jointly mentored by participating faculty members at University of Pennsylvania.

See http://tesla.pcbi.upenn.edu/~lswang/?page_id=314 for more details about the position.
Qualified candidates should have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in computer science, statistics, biology, biostatistics, genetic epidemiology, or other related fields, and demonstrate experience in programming and processing genomic data on linux environments. Expertise in genetics, algorithmic development, machine learning, data mining, and/or skills in next-generation sequencing data preferred.
