- the abundance of small and long non-coding RNAs
- the diversity of splicing mRNA isoforms in bulk and single cells
- RNA-protein interactions by RIP and CLIP-seq
- the production of nascent RNA transcripts using GRO-seq
- the stability of mRNAs after transcription
- mRNA translation by ribosomal profiling
- in vivo RNA polymerase II distribution
- Ph.D. in biological or computational discipline, MS candidates will also be considered
- Preferred expertise in R, Python, or C++
- Working knowledge of computational and molecular biology, and high throughput DNA sequencing data analysis
- Demonstrated ability to teach bioinformatics, computational Biology, and/or genomics courses and workshops
