The Systems Genomics group at the Roslin Institute at the University of Edinburgh (http://lab.michoel.info) develops and applies analytical methods to model the complex variations of traits and diseases between individuals using large-scale multi-omics data. We are currently seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral Research Fellow to join our team.
This is funded by the NIH and is part of a collaboration with the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, centred around the analysis of a unique dataset of genotype and RNA-sequencing data from 7 disease-relevant tissues of 600 coronary artery disease patients. This position will focus on reconstructing gene networks for phenotypic subcategories of patients, and validating them in the context of existing GWAS, regulatory genomics and other relevant datasets. This position requires previous experience in working with large-scale omics data and a strong computer programming background. A PhD degree in a computational science is desired.
This position is available from January 2016.
For any queries regarding the positions, please contact Dr Tom Michoel –Tom.Michoel@roslin.ed.ac.uk.
