Cyberinfrastructure Specialist II
George Washington University
George Washington University seeks Research Computing and Data (RCD) professionals for the Research Technology Services team in GW IT.

The Cyberinfrastructure Specialist II is a mid-level RCD position, with responsibility in system engineering and researcher support. As a mid-level position, the Cyberinfrastructure Specialist II will have some specialized expertise in certain technologies, while having a broad set of skills and responsibilities across RTS services.

Research Technology Services (RTS) is a team of Research Computing and Data (RCD) professionals within GW IT that provide and support various cyberinfrastructure (CI) systems and services in support of GW’s research mission. The RTS service portfolio includes high-performance computing clusters; public cloud infrastructure, purpose-built computational, data management, storage platforms, and application and workflow support across a wide array of research disciplines.

Please see the posting online for more details.
Postdoctoral Fellowship
University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus
The Hendricks Lab in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow with a background in human genomics, biostatistics, statistics, computational biology, bioinformatics, machine learning, and/or related fields. Individuals from diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.

The postdoc and PI will jointly envision projects tailored to the fellow’s skillset and long-term career goals. Postdocs will be expected to carry out rigorous statistical, computational, and machine learning research, analyze data and interpret findings, and disseminate findings, software, and data to the biomedical community.

The Hendricks team works at the intersection of biomedical research and statistical/machine learning method development. Our goal is to support rigorous, reproducible, and representative research from basic science to implementation of precision health. Our core activities towards this mission are: 1) building open-source and broadly useful data science methods and software, and 2) promoting growth of a representative research community through programs, mentoring, and collaboration. Recent projects include improving the utility and equity of genetic summary data by detecting and leveraging substructure, identifying metabolomic derived food biomarkers, and developing standards for robust use of common external controls.

Current project funding includes support for methodological and applied work in identifying and leveraging substructure in genomic summary data, employing deep phenotyping and genotyping data to characterize systemic determinants of health, identifying food biomarkers, and characterizing multi-omic drivers of healthy diets.
Postdoc at Duke (Computational Genomics)

To apply, please reach out to Dr. Zhang ( with a subject [Postdoc app] - [Your name] - [Institution]. Please include (1) CV or Resume (2) Description or research statement of previous/ongoing work and proposed research and interests (3) 1-3 representative publications (published, accepted, or preprint), if link/pdf available (4) Three names of references.
Postdoc Fellow at University of Kentucky
University of Kentucky
This position is funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), and projects will focus on Alzhiemer's diease and related dementias. The Fellow will work within the Statistical 'Omics Research Collaborative and collaborate with experts in the University of Kentucky Alzheimer's Disease Research Center and the Sanders-Brown Center on Aging.

There are possible opportunities for a staff scientistic or a Research Assistant Professor position depending on qualifications and mutual interest.
Postdoc position at MD Anderson Cancer Center
MD Anderson Cancer Center
The Shang Lab within the Department of Biostatistics and Yuan Lab within the Department of Translational Molecular Pathology and at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center invite applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher position. The Shang lab develops cutting-edge computational and statistical methods for genetic and genomic studies including spatial transcriptomics and single cell RNA sequencing. The Yuan lab designs impact-driven strategies and artificial intelligence (AI) engines to accelerate the applications of AI and data science to digital pathology.
