Computational Biologist Postdoc Positions Available at MSU

  • Postdocs

Dr. Jianrong Wang is an assistant professor in the Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering at Michigan State University (MSU). He is looking for highly competent postdocs to join his lab. Multiple postdoc positions are available.

Research in Dr. Wang’s lab is in the intersection of machine learning, statistical modeling, bioinformatics and computational biology, with a focus on building novel hierarchical Bayesian models and efficient learning algorithms to construct large-scale regulatory networks and to decode the genetic basis of human diseases, based on big-data from genomics. The postdoc positions will be supported by NIH. Detailed information of Dr. Wang and his research can be found: https://cmse.msu.edu/directory/faculty/jianrong-wang

The candidates are expected to be highly self-motivated and have a strong passion for scientific research. Candidates should have (or expect to have soon) a PhD degree in related fields (bioinformatics, statistics, computer science, mathematics etc), have solid background in machine learning and statistical modeling, and have strong programming skills in Python or R. Candidates with prior research experiences in computational biology, bioinformatics, functional genomics, gene regulation, NGS data processing are preferred.

Application materials:

  • CV;
  • Statement of prior research experiences and future research interests (<=2 pages);
  • Two publications (as first author or co-first author) from prior research;
  • Contact information of 3 references.

If you are interested, please send an email to Dr. Wang (wangj164@msu.edu) with your application materials.
