Post-Doctoral Position for Genomic Molecular Technology Development
In the laboratory of Hanlee P. Ji, M.D. Associate Director of Stanford Genome Technology Center, Associate Professor, Dept. of Medicine Division of Oncology, Stanford School of Medicine.
Ji Research Group is searching for a postdoctoral biomedical engineer for innovative, novel molecular technology development applied to biomedical research as well as novel diagnostics. We develop new technologies and methods that are dramatic advances over existing technologies for genetics, genomics, molecular biology, and molecular diagnosis. Our focus is on the genetic information that is not accessible with current technologies. Examples of ongoing work include genomic methods for analyzing single cell genomes, complex genetic rearrangements, microsatellite instability, and long-range haplotype. Moreover, we have a major interest in the analysis of challenging samples such as genetic materials from archival tumor tissue, circulating DNA and forensic samples. Most of our work use next-generation DNA sequencing. For more information about the lab, please visit our website (dna-discovery.stanford.edu).
Oxford Nanopore, Illumina sequencers (Owned: HiSeq 2500, MiSeq, NextSeq, iSeq; Access to NovaSeq), 10X Chromium, automated liquid handlers, robotics, new molecular platforms available from Silicon Valley startups
Experience and Training
• Ph.D in biomedical engineering, molecular biology, analytical chemistry, human genetics or related field
• (optional) Experience in recent molecular technologies (e.g. next generation sequencing, ddPCR)
• (optional) Experience in bioinformatics tools for omics analysis (e.g. R and python packages, and software)
