We are looking for a highly motivated candidate specializing in Bioinformatics to join the Computational Cancer Genomics lab of Dr. Rendong Yang. The goal of this position will be to lead multiple research projects, develop novel computational algorithm(s), perform data analysis, collaborate with biologists and physicians, and present/publish the results in scientific conferences/journals. The main focus is to explore the functional consequences of somatic alterations in cancer patients, to identify driver alterations, and to understand the genetic mechanisms of cancer progression and drug resistance by integrating multi-dimensional data from large-scale cancer studies such as The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA). Our work have been published (or in press) in high impact journal such as Nature, Nature Genetics, Nature Immunology, Nature Communications, Genome Medicine, Cancer Research, Bioinformatics. The postdocs in the lab are currently supported by prestigious Eagle Cancer Telethon fellowship.
A Ph.D. in Bioinformatics/Computational Biology/Computer Science/Statistics/Physics/Biology or a related field is required.
Experience in Linux.
Proficiency in at least one programming languages (e.g. Python, R, Perl, Java, C/C++, Matlab).
Experiences with high-throughput sequencing data (WGS, WES, RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq) analysis.
The candidate must demonstrate effective verbal and written communication skills.
About the Hormel Institute
The Hormel Institute, a biomedical research center of the University of Minnesota, was established in 1942 and has an excellent reputation and long history for producing world-class medical research. The Institute’s research success has resulted in a second major expansion of its research facilities and includes an additional new state-of-the-art laboratory building that opened in January 2016. The Hormel Institute offers its research scientists complete access to state-of-the- art cutting edge equipment that includes a cryo-electron microscope (Titan Krios and Tecnai G2 Spirit Biotwin); FACS cell sorter; confocal microscopy; flow cytometry; protein crystallography robotics and defraction system; nano-HPLC-AB SCIEX triple TOF 5600 mass spectrometry; a Blue Gene/L and 3 racks of Linux GPU supercomputers for computational biology and bioinformatics; and spectrophotometers.
