Postdoctoral Fellow in Translational Bioinformatics

Health and Biomedical Informatics

Postdoctoral Fellow Position in Translational Bioinformatics, Department of Preventive Medicine – Division of Health and Biomedical Informatics
Northwestern University – Feinberg School of Medicine

Applications are invited from recent PhDs to work with Professor Ramana Davuluri in the area of Translational Bioinformatics. Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree in statistics, bioinformatics, or computational biology. Strong ability in the application of statistical pattern recognition methods and computer programming is essential. Our current interests are in the development of bioassays that can rapidly identify biomarkers from human tissue and blood samples, and predicting and validating transcriptional networks at isoform-level. The projects will involve NextGen sequencing based experimental methods, such as ChIP-seq and RNA-seq (e.g., Pal et. al. Genome Research, 2011), and designing custom assays (e.g., high-throughput RT-qPCR) to validate the computational predictions from high-dimensional datasets (e.g., Pal et. al. Nucleic Acids Res. 2014). The candidate is expected to work in a highly collaborative fast paced environment, with regular interactions with clinicians and molecular biology experts.

Northwestern University is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action Employer of all protected classes, including veterans and individuals with disabilities. Women and Minorities are encouraged to apply. Hiring is contingent on eligibility to work in the United States.

Qualified applicants are invited to submit their CV and a list of 3 references to:
