We are seeking highly motivated and skilled individuals for postdoctoral positions in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. The successful candidates will work on the cutting-edge research area of high-throughput sequencing data analysis (e.g., RNA-seq) and gene expression regulation analysis (e.g., alternative splicing regulation). The candidates will develop novel statistical and computational methods for analyzing high-throughput sequencing data and other types of genomic data. The candidates will have the opportunities to work collaboratively with experimental biologists in the field of stem cell biology.
Ph.D. degree in statistics, computer science, applied mathematics, biostatistics, computational biology, or bioinformatics. A strong quantitative background is required.
Practical experience in analyzing and managing large high-throughput datasets.
Proficiency in programming (e.g., Java, C/C++, Perl, R) and experience with Linux/Unix environment.
Research experience (with first-author publications) in computational biology or bioinformatics.
Please send your CV with contacts of three references and a brief research statement to liang.chen at usc.edu. Please also arrange three recommendation letters sent directly to the above email address.
