The Department of Biomedical Informatics at the University of Colorado Denver l Anschutz Medical Campus welcomes applications for a computational postdoctoral position. The Department's overarching goal is to transform how we understand complex biological systems by developing and applying computational algorithms that effectively model processes by integrating multiple types of big data from diverse experiments.

Nature of Work:

The Department of Biomedical Informatics at the University of Colorado, Anschutz Medical Campus, seeks a full-time (1.0 FTE) Postdoctoral Fellow to carry out research in computational biology. This position will be largely supported by a collaborative grant with the work conducted in concert with Dr. Casey Greene, Dr. James Costello, and Dr. Milton Pividori. Postdocs on this team contribute to the development of new analytical methods and/or the application of these methods to new datasets. Postdocs will have the opportunity to work with large collections of genomic data, both publicly available and from collaborative projects, and to extract testable biological hypotheses from these large collections. Research projects center around new computational methods to integrate genomic data as well as to incorporate additional environmental and phenotypic information with these genomic data. Areas of particular interest for this project include the development of novel methods to extract gene-gene patterns from different datasets and integrate gene networks with genome-wide and transcription-wide association studies (GWAS/TWAS) and the study of genetic risk factors for respiratory diseases (such as asthma) as well as co-occurring phenotypes in Down syndrome. Postdocs are expected to contribute to the team's culture of open scientific discovery and to share methodological advances and biological discoveries at both national and international venues.
