Postdoctoral Research Fellow & Bioinformatics Analyst Positions
Division of Biomedical Informatics, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center
Dr. Hee Woong Lim’s laboratory in the Division of Biomedical Informatics has multiple positions available to work at the cutting edge of bioinformatics & computational biology research in the Division of Biomedical Informatics (BMI), Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC). The lab is interested in regulatory genomics to understand the fundamental mechanisms of gene expression regulation. We primarily focus on enhancer regulation and aiming at systems level understanding of enhancer architectures and functions in various contexts. To this end, we develop computational methods integrating various types of high-throughput multi-omics data such as ChIP-seq, ChIP-exo, CUT&RUN, GRO-seq, RNA-seq, ATAC-seq, and Hi-C as well as single-cell data. (Example publications in Google Scholar). Actively collaborating with multiple wet laboratories, the successful candidate will have unique research opportunities at the interface of quantitative science, experimental biology, and clinical science encompassing metabolism, organ development, food allergy, and pharmacogenomics.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow: The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in a quantitative science such as computer science, bioinformatics, physics, or a related interdisciplinary field, be a highly motivated problem solver, and have strong communication skills. Experience with next-generation sequencing data and bioinformatics tool development is preferred. Candidates with a biology background with quantitative training are also encouraged to apply.
Bioinformatics Analyst: The ideal candidate will have MS or BS degree in a related quantitative science field. Must have strong programming skills and be familiar with the Linux environment enough to setup, execute, and develop bioinformatics pipelines. Previous experience of bioinformatics software development and analysis is preferred; decent background knowledge of genomics/molecular biology is plus.
How to apply
Interested applicants should send an email to Dr. Hee Woong Lim (HeeWoong.Lim@cchmc.org) including follow documents:
- CV (with reference contact information)
