A postdoctoral position is open for an exceptional candidate in the field of Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Genomic Data Science. The postdoc would work with an enthusiastic group of researchers at IIT Madras (which we call the BIRDS group for Bioinformatics and Integrative Data Science) in an emerging area of systems biology called “Multi-tissue Genomics”. Multi-tissue Genomics deals with the joint analysis of gene expression data (collected from multiple tissues of healthy vs. diseased individuals) with matched genetic and clinical data to derive new insights about human health and disease.
An ideal candidate would be a well-trained bioinformatician with R/Python/similar programming skills, a PhD degree in computer science/genomic biology/related fields, and a strong background in at least one of these two areas:
Creativity in developing new bioinformatics methods and/or new (in-silico/in-vitro) validation strategies for key mediators of inter-tissue communication is a plus.
Interested doctorates can apply by sending your CV, research proposal, and a cover letter explaining your interest (by Jul 24th if you want to be considered in the first round to the email below, with [BIRDS-PD] in email’s subject).
