Postdoc Positions in Genomics & Computational Biology

Position: We are looking for a talented and motivated individual to join the Krishnan Lab as a postdoctoral researcher.

http://www.arjun-krishnan.net/join 


Krishnan Lab: We develop and apply genomics/computational approaches to find mechanistic explanations for how our genome relates to health and disease. We use statistics/machine learning to build data-driven models and predictions about the genetic basis of biomedical phenomena, esp. in an age-, sex-, & tissue-specific manner. We work closely with experimental/ clinical researchers to motivate our methods and put our predictions to test. Our overarching goal is to gain more nuanced and accurate insights into the genes and networks underlying physiology, complex diseases, and clinical phenotypes to advance precision medicine.


Qualifications; A PhD, MD, or equivalent, with a strong background in computer science, machine learning, statistics, bioinformatics, computational biology, genetics, or other closely related fields. Programming experience in Python, R, &/or C++ w/ version control (Git). Web development experience (Django|SQL|HTML5|CSS|JavaScript) is a plus. Good communication skills, willingness to collaborate openly, give/take constructive feedback, and, overall, sustain a friendly and fun lab culture.


Application Process: Send an email to thekrishnanlab@gmail.com with a copy of your CV, a link to your Google Scholar page, a short statement of your research interests, and names/contact-information for three references.
