Postdoctoral Fellow: Machine Learning for Large-Scale Cancer Genomics Data

The Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) and the Center for Big Data and Integrative Genomics (c-BIG) have an open position for a postdoctoral fellow to develop and apply machine learning techniques to large-scale cancer genomics data.

The aim of the project is to investigate transcriptional features that are predictive in the context of precision medicine. The project will combine multiple sources of genomics data (RNA and whole genome sequencing data) from tumors and patient-derived model systems. The project is in close collaboration with the National Cancer Center Singapore, the candidate will work in the team of Jonathan Göke at the Genome Institute of Singapore.


The Genome Institute of Singapore offers a competitive salary and a complete benefits package that ensures a very high living standard in one of the most modern cities in the world.


Candidates should have a PhD in computer science, statistics, bioinformatics or a related discipline, a solid understanding of probability and statistics, strong programming skills, and experience in one or more of the following areas: transcriptome analysis, single cell genomics, cancer genomics, machine learning, deep learning.

About the Genome Institute of Singapore

The Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS, A*STAR) is the national flagship programme for genomic science in Singapore. GIS hosts the largest collection of sequencing machines in Singapore, it has a compute cluster with more than 6,000 CPUs and more than 3 PB storage capacity, and a direct high-speed connection to the National Supercomputing Center Singapore.

Why Singapore?
