The Bozdag Lab in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of North Texas (biocomp.engineering.unt.edu/) has an opening for a postdoctoral scholar to work on NIH-funded 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 and apply data mining/machine learning approaches on high dimensional biological and clinical datasets.
The initial appointment is one year with the possibility of renewal based on performance.
Ph.D. in Computer Science, Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, or closely related field
Strong publication record in one or more of the following areas: computational biology/bioinformatics, biomedical informatics, deep learning/machine learning, data mining, biostatistics, or a closely related area.
Proficiency in software development skills in programming languages such as R and Python.
Prior research experience in computational biology/bioinformatics/biomedical informatics is preferred. However, strong research experience in developing/applying deep learning/machine learning/data mining/data science methods on other domains/datasets will also be considered.
Strong communication and scientific writing skills.
Expertise in software engineering with documentation, version control, and code releases.
Expertise in Linux and high-performance computing environments.
Experience in parallel programming (MPI, GPU, etc.).
Proficiency in biostatistical methods.
Ability to work independently and in group settings.
Ability to learn quickly and apply new analytic techniques.
