Postdoctoral Fellowship in Computational Genomics at Johns Hopkins University

A postdoctoral position is available in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine to work with Dr. Michael Beer to develop novel computational models at the forefront of regulatory genomics as part of the ENCODE project. Our laboratory actively analyzes and collaborates to generate functional genomic data (DNase-seq, ATAC-seq, MPRA, RNA-seq, Hi-C) to unravel the underlying DNA sequence code which specifies cell-type specific enhancer activity and regulatory contributions to a wide range of human diseases. Our lab is housed in the Institute of Genetic Medicine which provides a highly collaborative and dynamic environment and opportunities to directly evaluate and inform our computational models. For more details on our research see www.beerlab.org.

Qualifications:

1) The ideal applicant should have a PhD degree and publication record in computational biology, genomics, biomedical engineering, applied mathematics or physics, or other related fields with strong quantitative training.

2) Strong programming skills in C/C++, Python, or equivalent are required.

Interested applicants should email curriculum vitae and at least three letters of recommendation to Dr. Michael Beer (mbeer@jhu.edu). Applications will be considered until the position is filled. The Johns Hopkins University is an Affirmative Action / Equal Opportunity Employer. There are no citizenship restrictions.
