Postdoc Fellow in RNA bioinformatics and genomics

The Wistar Institute
Center for Systems Biology and Computational Biology
United States PA Philadelphia


We are looking for a motived individual to join our lab as a Postdoctoral Fellow to study RNA regulation using computational approaches. He/she will use Bioinformatics and Genomics techniques to study RNA processing and metabolism in cancer and immunity. Some of the work will be based on single cell RNA sequencing and mining large data sets for human populations. Collaboration with experimental scientists in the lab is expected.

Our lab uses interdisciplinary approaches to study RNA biogenesis and metabolism, with a special focus on the molecular mechanisms and cellular consequences of alternative cleavage and polyadenylation (APA, Nat Rev Mol Cell Biol. 18:18-30). We employ a variety of cutting-edge techniques spanning multiple fields, including molecular biology, functional genomics, bioinformatics, and single molecule imaging. Detailed research topics and publications can be found at

Interested individuals should contact Dr. Bin Tian by email ( with a CV including a summary of previous research and contact information of three referees. We offer competitive salary and employee benefits. The salary will be commensurate with experience.

The Wistar Institute is located in the University City area of Philadelphia, in the heart of the University of Pennsylvania Campus. Wistar provides outstanding intellectual environments, state-of-the-art facilities, and streamlined administrative support to its faculty and staff, enabling cutting-edge research, especially in collaborative settings. Research discoveries conducted at Wistar have led to the development of vaccines; the identification of key genes associated with cancers; and the development of many other significant research technologies and tools.


Ph.D. degree in Computational Biology or Ph.D. degree in Molecular Biology with extensive Bioinformatics experience.
