RESEARCH FELLOW / POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN SYSTEMS BIOLOGY/COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY

DESCRIPTION: Postdoctoral positions are currently available in Dr. Bhasin Systems Biomedicine laboratory at the BETH ISRAEL DEACONESS MEDICAL CENTER/HARVARD MEDICAL SCHOOL, Boston MA. We are looking for researchers to join our team for development of computational algorithms for integrating high throughput profiling data (e.g. genotyping, RNA-Seq data, ChIP-Seq, Epigenome, Proteome and Metabolome) with phenotype or clinical data. The focus of position will be to develop novel systems Biology modeling and analysis approaches for developing multi-dimensional networks and identifying master regulators that are critical in driving disease pathophysiology. The candidate will have the opportunity to do excellent and cutting edge research in computational systems biology, and work in a highly interdisciplinary environment.

QUALIFICATIONS: Successful candidates should hold a MD, MD/PhD, PhD or MS in Computational Biology/ Bioinformatics/ Computer Science/ Biochemistry/ Mathematics/ Engineering/ Physics or Statistics. The position requires a strong background in algorithms and statistics, data management and mining, and machine learning. The candidate should have prior experience of work in systems biology and its stochastic computing, integrative modeling (using strong Bayesian network, HMM, etc.) and computational aspects. Candidates with prior experience in next generation sequencing data analysis are desirable. Candidates should have excellent programming skills and experience in C/ C++/ Java/ Perl/ Python and R. Highly motivated and creative candidates with excellent record of publications in peer-reviewed journals are encouraged to apply. The candidate is expected to have outstanding personal initiative and be able to work effectively as part of a team.

HOW TO APPLY: Candidates who are willing to work in an exciting environment on the cutting edge of systems biology, genomics, proteomics and translational medicine are encouraged to apply. Please send a CV, a brief description of previous research and the names of three references to: mbhasin@bidmc.harvard.edu


 

Bioinformatician and Computational Biologist

DESCRIPTION: Bioinformatician position is currently available in Dr. Bhasin Systems Biomedicine laboratory (bhasinlab.org) at BETH ISRAEL DEACONESS MEDICAL CENTER / HARVARD MEDICAL SCHOOL, Boston MA. Bioinformatician will be responsible for the development and maintenance of workflows/algorithms for analysis of genomics, proteomics, next-generation sequencing and metabolomics data. He will also be responsible for developing solutions for integrated and systems biology analysis of multi-dimensional omics data. She or he must have strong technical skills while working independently on development or data analysis projects. Prior experience in handing and analysis of genome level data is extremely helpful.

Characteristic Duties::

To develop and maintain analysis pipelines for microarray, proteomics and next-generation sequencing data. • Apply sequence analysis methods, clustering algorithms, functional and statistical analysis methods on omics data. • To develop analytical workflows for identifying predictive biomarkers from genome level data using novel feature selection and classifier training algorithms. • Develop innovative solutions for integrated analysis multi-dimensional omics datasets including SNP Profiling, ChipSEQ, Transcriptome, Epigenome, and Proteome. • Manage genomics, proteomics and sequencing data analysis, visualization, interpretation, and presentation.

Qualifications: BS in computer science, computer engineering, bioinformatics or related discipline; advanced degree (MS, PhD) a strong plus. • Excellent programming skills and experience in C/ C++, Java, Perl, Python, SAS, MATLAB, and R. • The candidate should have 1-3 years experience in handing and analysis of genome level data. • Strong background in algorithms and statistics, data management and mining, and machine learning. • Extraordinary oral and written communication skills • Ability to work in a fast-paced and results-oriented environment
