The Computational and Statistical Genomics (CSG) lab at McGill University is recruiting a Postdoctoral Fellow. The successful candidate will join an interdisciplinary team of computational and experimental biologists working at the intersection of machine learning, statistical inference, and genomics, in order to understand the genetic and molecular basis of gene regulation, the role of gene regulation in cancer, and the gene regulatory mechanisms that can be exploited to inhibit the cancer cell.
While we are interested in a broad range of backgrounds related to computational genomics, candidates with a PhD in bioinformatics, computational biology or related areas are particularly encouraged to apply. Strong analytical and programming skills, as well as experience with bioinformatics tools and data resources are desirable. Preference will be given to candidates who have experience in design, implementation, or application of computational methods for analysis of large-scale genomics data, such as ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, and WGS. Familiarity with methods in machine learning and statistical inference is a plus.
Successful candidates should have the ability to work both independently and as a team member in a multi-disciplinary environment.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter, CV, and the contact information of at least three references to:
