Applications are invited for a postdoctoral researcher to work at the cutting edge of bioinformatics & medicine in the laboratory of Prof. Mitchell Lazar at the Institute for Diabetes, Obesity, and Metabolism at the University of Pennsylvania. The successful candidate will have a strong computational biology background and work closely with experimental biologists to develop tools and analyze genomic (Gro-seq, RNA-Seq, ChIP-seq) and epigenomic (histone modification and DNA methylation) data. By applying integrative approaches, he/she will make discoveries related to diabetes, obesity, and metabolism.
The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in bioinformatics/computer science/physics or a related field, be highly motivated to solve biological problems, and have strong programming skills. Expertise in developing bioinformatics tools using data mining and signal processing is highly recommended.
Interested applicants should send CV and statement summarizing her/his research interests and experience to Ms. Vesselina Panteva, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The University of Pennsylvania is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer.
