The Au Lab is seeking candidates for two postdoctoral research scholar positions to work on sequencing analyses:
Postdoctoral Research Scholar in bioinformatics method development:
We are looking for a postdoctoral scholar to develop statistical and computational/algorithmic methods for high-throughput sequencing data analyses, such as transcriptome and epigenetics using PacBio and Oxford Nanopore Technologies. Background on mathematics, statistics, computer science or degree in a related field is desirable.
Postdoctoral Research Scholar in computational biology
We are looking for a postdoctoral scholar in biology background. Our lab performs world leading science in development process and cancer research. Our team focuses on making meaningful advances to understand development process and cancer, using cutting edge technologies (third generation sequencing technology) to create authentic models and gain novel biological insight in transcriptome and epigenetics level. A typical candidate would have skills in including but not limited to implementing basic in-house bioinformatics tools, collaborating with statistician and computational biologists to elucidate biological discovery and mining out biological insights. Background on biology, computational biology or bioinformatics is desirable.
Strong ability in statistical analysis or computer programming (python/perl, C/C++, R, Matlab) is desirable.
The postdoctoral research scholars will have the opportunity to collaborate with internationally recognized biomedical scientists at University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine, Stanford University, University of Oxford and Pacific Biosciences.
