Baylor College of Medicine has an opportunity for a jointly mentored Postdoctoral position for training in integrative analysis of epigenomic, transcriptomic, metabolomics and proteomic large-scale datasets. The Walker and Coarfa labs are looking for highly motivated individuals to be cross-trained in multi-omics analysis and data science to conduct research aimed at understanding how exposures to environmental chemicals reprogram the transcriptome, epigenome, microbiome, and metabolome to cause disease (see Trevino et al, Nature Communication 2020, Katz et al, Environmental Health Perspectives 2020, Wang et al Nature Biotechnology 2018).
The position is intended for Computer Science/Bioinformatics graduates or for Life Sciences graduates transitioning to a data science and bioinformatics career. The successful candidate will receive training in analyses of multi-omics data and be expected to participate in multiple projects involving design, implementation and integration of large-scale datasets and data processing pipelines. The candidate will also perform advanced modeling of disease risk based on environmental exposures such as Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs), organotin, and on multi-omics molecular responses, using approaches including generalized linear models and deep learning. Experience in epigenetics or gene regulation is a plus, and experience with statistical analysis tools such as R or Python is recommended. Due to the nature of the position, successful candidates must have excellent written and verbal English skills, strong communication and interpersonal skills, and be capable of working with large collaborative teams.
Please submit a CV, statement of research, and the names of three references by email to: Dr. Cristian Coarfa at email@example.com
