Hiroshima, Japan

Job description:

We are looking for talented bioinformatics researchers to join the newly formed Bioinformatics Laboratory at Hiroshima University in Japan. We use computational methods to analyze gene regulation with a focus on clinical and medical applications. This includes analysis of the transcriptional response to treatment with drugs and other regulatory molecules at the cellular level, and profiling clinical samples at bulk or single cell level in order to identify regulatory elements and networks perturbed in disease states.

The ideal candidate will have well documented experience and knowledge in one or several of the following topics: bioinformatics, computational biology, genomics, transcriptomics, epigenomics, gene regulation, single cell analysis, machine/deep learning, network analysis and related fields.

The candidate is expected to contribute to multiple projects within the group and also to develop their own research topic aligning with the research interests of the group.


  • Completed (by time of commencement) PhD degree in bioinformatics, computational biology or other relevant field
  • Good knowledge of central concepts in gene expression regulation, epigenetics, and molecular biology
  • Experience with analysis of next generation sequencing data from technologies such as CAGE, RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq etc at bulk and/or single cell level
  • Proficiency in programming, scripting and statistical data analysis (e.g. Python/Perl, R/Matlab)
  • Strong publication record with documented ability to write scientific manuscripts
  • Fluent in English
  • High level communication and presentation skills

Term of appointment: Starting as soon as possible with a duration to 31 March, 2022 (renewal every year)
