Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral researcher to join the multi-disciplinary groups of bioinformatics, biology & medicine.
Our research/The group
We aim to further our understanding of the genome by integrating large-scale genomic datasets. We develop computational methods to exploit multi-dimensional genomic/epigenomic/transcriptomic landscapes to understand cell-type specific or spatio-temporal gene regulation. Using computational integrative approaches, we also study transcriptional mechanisms controlling cell differentiation and cell identify. Our areas of research include studying gene regulations in adipocyte, liver, cancer cells and stem cell differentiation.
For this, we develop computational algorithms for various genome scale datasets including DNA methylation, single cell RNAseq, ChIP-exo, GROseq and HiC. More information is found at http://www.med.upenn.edu/wonlab/ .
Project/The research project(s)
By applying integrative approaches or developing new computational algorithms, he/she will study gene regulatory mechanisms in, but not limited to, blood cancers, adipogenesis and cell differentiation. A candidate also can join bioinformatics research in precision oncology. Projects are highly multidisciplinary and closely collaborate with Translational Hematology Programme and BRIC members at the University of Copenhagen.
Start: Jan 1, 2020
Duration: 2 years
We expect you to be a highly motivated and highly ambitious scientist with the following qualifications:
- A PhD in Math, Computer Science, Engineering
- Strong programming skills (Python, C, etc )
- Knowledge of next generation sequencing data and/or data mining
- Excellent English skills written and spoken
