Computational Epigenomics Postdoctoral Fellow
Postdoctoral opportunity in Computational Epigenomics at the National Institutes of Health, USA
A postdoctoral fellowship is available at the National Institute on Aging, NIH, for developing computational methods to analyze high-throughput sequencing-based chromatin assays. The successful applicant will work in the laboratory of Dr. Myong-Hee Sung, Transcription Systems Dynamics and Biology Unit located in NIH/NIA Baltimore, Maryland.
We are seeking highly motivated recent Ph.D. scientists who are interested in investigating outstanding questions in epigenomics using statistical and computational tools. An ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. degree in mathematics, physics, engineering, or a related quantitative discipline, and has some knowledge in molecular biology or genomics methods. Proficiency in one or more programming languages such as C++, Python, R, MATLAB, Perl is required, in addition to familiarity of commonly used computational genomics tools. To apply, please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and contact information for 3 references to: firstname.lastname@example.org . The evaluations of candidates will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
