POSTDOCTORAL ASSOCIATE – Omics Data Science

We’re currently seeking a motivated researcher interested in leveraging modern genomic advancements to discover the complex genetic causes of disease – and to develop novel diagnostics and therapeutics – to join the lab of Dr. Zhengqing Ouyang at The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine.

 

ABOUT THE OUYANG LAB: We develop statistical and computational methodologies for analyzing high-throughput omics data. Some of our areas of focus include the higher-order structures of the genome and transcriptome, single-cell omics, and the regulomes in development and diseases. For more info about our research, visit our JAX page and website.

 

ABOUT JAX-GM: Comprising 183,000 square feet of highly advanced, state-of-the-art laboratories and supporting facilities, the brand new JAX-GM conveniently sits midway between NYC and Boston in the heart of Connecticut. JAX-GM is part of an exciting $1.1 billion venture between the state of Connecticut and The Jackson Laboratory, an internationally-recognized research and educational institution with unparalleled genomic resources and research support services.

 

Our Postdoctoral Associates enjoy distinct advantages, including:

  • A uniquely collaborative environment that fosters interdisciplinary ‘team science’ without departmental barriers
  • Superior scientific support services
  • Unparalleled mouse and genomic resources
  • Excellent research facilities and equipment
  • Close interaction with our award-winning faculty members
  • Partnerships with leading universities and medical centers
  • Access to numerous courses and conferences focused on genetics, genomics and biomedicine
  • Working for an institution that has been repeatedly voted among the top 15 “best places to work in academia” by readers of The Scientist

 

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS

  • Ph.D. training in computational biology, bioinformatics, statistics, computer science, applied mathematics, physics, engineering or a related quantitative area.
