Prof. Junwen Wang (www.mayo.edu/research/faculty/wang-junwen-ph-d/bio-20207988 ) from Division of Computational Biology, Department of Health Sciences Research and Dr. Victor Ortega from the Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Respiratory Medicine and the Center for Individualized Medicine and at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona, Scottsdale campus are looking for a postdoctoral fellow/research associate in Precision Medicine of Respiratory Diseases focused on the analysis of genomic variation associated with airways disease severity and drug response (pharmacogenomics) using whole-genome DNA sequencing, transcriptomics, epigenomic, quantitative physiologic and imaging approaches. The candidate will also develop computational methods for single cell multi-omics data integration. This individual is expected to have expert knowledge of scientific principles and concepts in NGS analysis. The applicant will use Unix and high-performance computational resources, and engage in collaborative research and publications, spanning collaborations across local research programs and national, NIH National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute-funded networks.
The ideal candidate for this role would possess the following:
• PhD/MD in bioinformatics or related field.
• Experience with R, Python.
• Experience on analyzing and annotating GWAS data (whole genome sequencing, whole exome sequencing and ChIP array)
• Experience in correlating OMICs data with clinical phenotypes.
• Experience in single cell sequencing data analysis, and multi-omics data integration will be a plus.
This applicant is also expected to be an independent, innovative, and creative thinker, who has outstanding written and verbal communication skills, effective process and project management skills, and excellent teamwork and collaboration skills.
