Lab Openings

A computational genomics post-doctoral research fellow position is available to study epigenomic abnormalities in cancer in the Center for Pharmacogenomics at Washington University in St. Louis. We seek a candidate to develop new computational tools to integrate epigenomic datasets to understand the potential functional consequences of epigenetic changes in cancer.

Our multi-disciplinary team is using cutting-edge experimental and computational methods to perform an integrated genomic analysis of the epigenetic mechanisms underlying cancer. The successful candidate will work closely with experimentalists and should be interested in translational biomedical research.

Minimum requirements for the position include: Ph.D. in computational biology, genomics, computer science or a related field.  Strong quantitative skills.

Applicants should email their CV, contact information for three references, and a cover letter detailing research experience and future interests to: John Edwards (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
