  • Postdoctoral Research Associate at Texas A&M University, Houston campus @TMC

    The institute of biosciences and technology (IBT) at Texas A&M University College of Medicine, is an internationally recognized leader in biomedical and health science research located at the Texas Medical Center (tmc) in Houston, TX, with existing strengths in epigenetics, cancer, stem cell biology, infectious disease, and environmental health.

    The center for epigenetics & disease prevention at ibt is seeking one to two highly motivated bioinformatics or postdoctoral investigators to develop and study novel approaches in data-driven biomedical research to discover new biomarkers, therapeutics, and to revolutionize health care or fundamental computational biology principles. primary responsibilities include application and development of bioinformatic algorithms to process and analyze multiple types of high-throughput sequencing data, like chip-seq, rna-seq and bisulfite-seq data. this exciting work will be guided by multidisciplinary collaborations with top scientists in stem cell, cancer biology, and microbiology research at tamu and tmc. We promise that at least four to five projects could be assigned to each postdoctoral investigator per year so that there is minimal risk and there might be tons of papers before the next stage of career development.

    The candidates will have a ph.d. in bioinformatics, biology, physics, mathematics, computer science, statistics, or engineering, or related fields. the other preferred qualifications include solid skills in at least one programming language (python, perl, r or c/c++), and strong skills in writing. a dual background in both computation and molecular biology or medicine is a plus. prior experience with genomics, epigenomics, aging epigenome, neuron stem cell, machine learning, or cloud computation is a plus. salary is highly competitive comparing with nih standard depending on experience.

    To apply, please send cv, and contact information for three references in a single file to email [email protected].
