Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology
Job Location: 
Biopolis, Singapore
Job Description: 
  • An opportunity to work in a multidisciplinary team of biologists, engineers, chemists, clinicians and epidemiologists, focusing on applied research and immediate industrial and clinical applications in systems oncology. The RS/A will be responsible for developing tools and methods to analyze -omics level data. Expertise in expression, GWAS and RNASeq methods is valued, along with an understanding of practical approaches towards genetics (particularly the evaluation of mutations and corresponding structural/functional outcomes). These methods are applied towards key outcomes such as the selection of key biomarker targets, working with a PI with practical expertise in expression analysis, clinical medicine, genetics and epidemiology.
  • As a research scientist/postdoctoral fellow, he/she is expected to independently work on developing methods and applications for bioinformatics analysis. Additionally, he/she should contribute to experimental design, pathway analysis to elicit biologic mechanisms, and the preparation of manuscripts. This position is highly demanding, but support and resources are readily available.
  • Applicants should have a PhD degree in Computer Science or relevant discipline with a focus on Computational Biology and/or Bioinformatics, and expertise in -omics analysis. Also required is a clear track record of publication and project deployment.
  • Strengths in R/Bioconductor or Matlab, and scripting languages e.g. Perl, Python.
  • Familiarity with relational databases, with a good knowledge of statistics.
  • Candidates with at least 1-2 years of work or related research experience are preferred.
  • Experience with molecular biology, genetics or cancer research would be very useful.
  • Experience in additional programming languages e.g. Java, C++ would be desirable.
  • Familiarity with web application technologies and development is a plus.
