The Computational Biology & Gene Regulation group has funded opening positions for a PhD student and a Postdoc. The group is part of the Centre for Molecular Medicine Norway (NCMM), an EMBL Nordic node. We analyze the regulation of gene expression and the mechanisms by which it can be disrupted in human diseases such as cancer. More information about the lab can be found at mathelierlab.com. The ideal candidates will be motivated by the development and application of computational methods for (1) improving the prediction of TFBSs; (2) predicting TF gene targets; or (3) prioritizing cis-regulatory variants dysregulating miRNA transcriptional regulation with downstream impact on the gene regulatory program in cancer.
We are looking for applicants excited about combining life sciences and computation to analyze gene expression regulation. The ideal candidates will be collaborative, independent, and should have experience in statistical / machine learning modeling and computer programming (mainly Python and/or R) dedicated to the analysis of large-scale genomics data.
How to apply
Applicants should send a CV, referees contact information, and a brief statement about career goals to Anthony Mathelier at mathelier-group[at]ncmm[dot]uio[dot]no.
