The Bozdag Lab in the Department of Computer Science Engineering at the University of North Texas has an opening for a postdoctoral fellow to work on research in bioinformatics. Our lab is dedicated to developing integrative computational tools that leverage multi-omics biological and clinical datasets to infer disease-associated genes, regulatory interactions and patient-specific drug response. The successful candidate will join a multidisciplinary team to work on cutting-edge research projects to develop data mining/machine learning approaches on high dimensional biological and clinical datasets.
Conduct all aspects of research projects under the mentorship of the Principal Investigator (e.g., data collection, preprocessing, analysis, software development, testing, evaluation, benchmarking, etc.).
Write manuscripts for publication.
Contribute to the drafting of grant proposals.
Present research progress at lab meetings and the individual meetings with the PI.
Attend conference for oral and poster presentations of research projects.
Contribute to mentoring and training of graduate and undergraduate students in the lab.
Ph.D. in Computer Science, Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, or related field with a strong research background in machine learning, statistics, genomics, or a closely related field
Strong first-author publication track-record in bioinformatics
Experience analyzing high dimensional biological datasets, particularly next-generation sequencing data
Demonstrated experience with the application of supervised and unsupervised machine learning methods to biological datasets
Proficiency in software development skills, including programming skills in R and/or Python, expertise with documentation, version control, and code releases
Expertise in Linux and high-performance computing environments
Strong communication and scientific writing skills
Ability to learn quickly and apply new analytic techniques
