- Research Assistant Professor and Research Associates/Post Docs
Opportunities are available for a RESEARCH ASSISTANT PROFESSOR and a RESEARCH ASSOCIATE/POSTDOC to work on an NIH sponsored
project involving the development
of computational models for the analysis of human genomic variation data. The primary focus of the project is to develop
statistical and computational methods and tools for multi-point and multi-locus analysis of genomic association data.
Applicants for all positions should have a Ph.D. degree in a relevant area (e.g., computer science, statistics, mathematics,
computational biology, or statistical genetics), with substantial training and experience in machine learning, statistical
modeling or algorithms. More specifically, research experiences on graphical models, ensemble approaches and/or haplotype analysis,
epistatic studies are greatly needed. The title of selected candidates will depend upon experience and qualifications.
Candidates should send their CV, research statement in relevant to genomic variation analysis, and three recommendation letters
directly to Professor Jing Li (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- PostDoc Fellowships
Postdoc fellowships are available through an NIH training grant in
Computational Genomic Epidemiology of Cancer (US residents only).
This fellowship provides a salary of $63,000 per year, most benefits, and $20,000 per year for research supplies and travel to
conferences. More details can be found from the link above.
- Graduate/Undergraduate Students
We are actively looking for motivated students to join our group. Requirements: willing to learn; hard working; excellent in at least
one of these areas: algorithms, statistics, machine learning/data mining, programming. Experience in bioinformatics/genomics is a plus.
To BS or MS students at Case: research projects are available for summer research/senior project/MS thesis or project.
Projects may involve algorithm development, software implementation, data analysis, data mining applications in
bioinformatics. Financial supports are available through Choose Ohio First Scholarships (Ohio residents only). Here is
an example project developed by our MS students.
