The lab will physically open in August 2020!

Senior Researcher/Lab manager

Seeking an experienced, highly motivated senior researcher to help build and manage the experimental (wet) lab. The senior researcher/lab manager will demonstrate experience in primary cell isolation techniques, cell culture, immunocytochemistry, RNA-Seq, single-cell RNA-Seq, flow cytometry, and have excellent leadership skills.

The Senior Researcher/Lab manager will be fully supported to pursue research initiatives and will assist in writing grant applications and papers. The responsibilities include managing and coordinating research efforts with other collaborators as appropriate for multidisciplinary research. To plan, execute, and follow-up on high level regular and ad hoc meetings of investigators and management. Independently conceive, plan, and conduct research projects based on reviews of scientific literature and recent advances in related fields, organizing and executing all techniques involved. Contribute novel ideas of major methodological significance to the research projects, designing key experiments, and developing new techniques. Will perform complex data analysis using various statistical tools. Will author or co-author scientific journal manuscripts and book chapters and report directly to funding agencies and journal editors. Prepare and implement research study budgets based on the analysis of data. Perform other duties as needed.

PhD and Master’s students

The lab is opening in the summer of 2020 and is seeking highly motivated students to develop and study novel approaches in translational bioinformatics, or the application of analytic and interpretive methods to optimize the transformation of genome-scale data of many types into proactive, predictive, preventative, and participatory health.

Ideal candidates will have:

  • Strong background in bioinformatics, computational biology, biostatistics, and genomics.
  • Strong problem-solving skills, creative thinking, and the ability to build new software tools as needed are required.
  • Applicants must possess good communication skills and be fluent in both spoken and written English.
  • A background in molecular biology or medicine or pharmacology will be a strong plus. Prior experience with genetic, drug, or clinical databases, machine-learning, deep-learning, text-mining and knowledge representation is a plus.

To apply, please send your CV and research interests to

Postdoctoral researchers

We are looking for fully-funded postdoctoral researcher to work on some exciting projects. Candidates are expected to have a track record of bioinformatics and or clinical informatics analysis.

There is also an option of co-advising postdoctoral researchers with other computational or experimental labs. An example might be an experimental postdoc with their own biological question for which there are no current analysis tools.
