Computational Postdoctoral Position

The Organization

Dr. Warren J. Leonard, Lab of Molecular Immunology and the Immunology Center, National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), NIH, Bethesda, MD is recruiting a computational postdoctoral researcher with expertise related to epigenomics, biostatistics, and systems biology approaches. The lab focuses on molecular immunology and uses ChIP-Seq, RNA-Seq, and ATAC-Seq to analyze global gene expression patterns and genome-wide distribution of chromatin modifications and transcription factors, as well as some studies related to whole exome and whole genome analysis (e.g., Liao et al. Nature Immunol. 9:1288-96 (2008); Li et al. Nature 490:543-6 (2012); Lin et al. Immunity 36:586-99 (2012); Kazemian et al. Mol Syst Biol. 11:826 (2015); Roychoudhuri et al., Nature Immunol. 17:851-60 (2016); Li et al. PNAS 14:12111 (2017).

The Role

Work is interactive with experimental biologists, integrating bioinformatics with wet lab approaches in order to elucidate normal cellular signaling, development, and differentiation as well as the basis for pathological conditions and disease states, using both human cells and animal models. We collaborate broadly both within NIH and with extramural and international investigators.

About You

The ideal candidate will have a strong background in Computer Science or Statistics with knowledge of R or Matlab; Python or Perl; and ideally C or C++, and have received a Ph.D. and/or an M.D. Salary is commensurate with research experience and accomplishments. Applicants must be within 5 years of their doctoral degree.
