Job Summary/Basic Function:
We are seeking a post-doctoral fellow with experience in computational sciences to join our research team. Our research investigates the regulatory functions that control gene expression within the complex landscape of the three-dimensional genome and how genetic variations influence these regulatory functions to cause human diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and other autoimmune diseases. We use a wide variety of high-throughput sequencing technologies, including HiC, ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, ATAC-seq, MPRA and high-throughput Crispr screening. In addition, we have recently established single cell sequencing technologies, which will allow us to investigate cell type-specific regulatory differences. Candidate must demonstrate proficiency in computer programming (UNIX-like OS, R, and python), and the application of statistical methods commonly used to analyze genetic data. Experience using data analysis pipelines and machine learning analytical approaches is a plus. Candidates must also demonstrate an ability to interpret and summarize research findings, and interest in assisting manuscript preparation and grant writing, and presenting at scientific meetings. OMRF is an independent, not-for-profit biomedical research institute adjacent to the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) campus in Oklahoma City. Oklahoma City offers a dynamic and flourishing downtown area, with low cost of living, short commute times and a diversified economy.
