The Department of Pharmacology at the University of Virginia seeks a motivated postdoctoral Research Associate to conduct research in the laboratory of Dr. Irina Bochkis. The Bochkis lab is utilizing experimental and computational methods to understand genetics and epigenetic mechanisms that regulate metabolism. We utilize functional genomics, chromatin biology, physiology, and transcriptional regulation in a comprehensive approach to decipher molecular mechanisms in mammalian models of human metabolic disease. We are looking for a computational biology postdoctoral Research Associate who will apply computational and statistical methods to analysis of genomic and transcriptomic datasets. The successful candidate will work in a joint computational and experimental environment with excellent resources for experimental validation of hypotheses generated by genomic analysis.
Interested candidates must have an MD or PhD in biological or related field in hand by appointment start date. Applicants should have a background in computational biology, functional genomics, or genetics and proficient with Perl, Python, R, C/C++, java, and/or SQL in Linux/Unix environment. Experience with next-generation sequence analysis of mammalian genomes (ChIP-Seq in particular) is preferred.
To apply, visit https://jobs.virginia.edu and search on Posting Number 0619755. Complete a Candidate Profile on-line; attach a CV, cover letter, and contact information for three references. The position will remain open until filled.
