HHMI Structural biology of chromatin - chromatin remodelers, PARPs, or histone-based DNA organization in weird non-eukaryotes. Cryo-EM, tomography, crystallography, life-cell-imaging, and more.
UCLA We study a stochastic convex combination of: statistical and human genetics, functional genomics, theoretical machine learning, and experimentation design. If this sounds interesting, reach out so we can chat.
Janelia Research Campus/HHMI We are looking for postdoctoral researcher to lead projects that investigate gene regulation mechanism in animal development as well as in disease models. The lab uses cutting-edge imaging techniques combined with advanced genomics and genetic perturbations to decode functional links between gene expression, transcription factor dynamics and genome organization.
Staff Scientist/ Sr. Research Technician
Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center Ideal candidates would have experience in and lead new directions in yeast genetics, genomics, and experimental evolution, in an evolutionary genetics lab with diverse projects ranging from chromatin to virology. Positions start July 2022 but start date is flexible.
HHMI/ BIDMC - Harvard Mass spectrometry - metabolomics
Bioinformatics Specialist I
HHMI/University of Washington We are currently seeking a highly skilled Bioinformatics Specialist I to work full-time in the lab of Dr. Evan Eichler at University of Washington School of Medicine. The Eichler lab is interested in the disease and evolutionary impact of gene duplication and other complex forms of human genetic variation. Specifically, they apply advanced genome sequencing methods to understand how segmental duplications give rise to new genes and recurrent rearrangements associated with the neurodevelopmental delay, including autism.
The Bioinformatics Specialist I will collaborate with the Investigator, postdoctoral fellows, and students to develop, implement, and execute computational methods and tools to assess the organization of recent segmental duplications and structural variation using next-generation Illumina and long-read technologies.
This role will focus on the discovery of genetic variation relevant to neurocognitive disease, including autism, and will work as part of sequencing consortia to develop methods to sequence and assemble genomes at higher quality. The successful candidate will independently perform scientific investigative procedures applying professional judgment, interpreting experimental results, guiding lab members through bioinformatics methods and analyses, and preparing research reports for presentation or publication.
For consideration for this position, please apply directly through the application website and do not contact the lab directly. Please be sure to include a cover letter with your application.
