Computational Biologist Postdoctoral Researcher- Mammalian Functional Genomics - 77585
The Genomics Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, CA, has an exciting Postdoctoral Researcher (Computational Biologist) opportunity in the area of mammalian functional genomics available.
This position will be under the joint mentorship of Len Pennacchio and Axel Visel. Research in the Pennacchio and Visel laboratories focuses on the use of genomic, epigenomic, and computational methods in conjunction with experimental studies to elucidate the role of transcriptional enhancers and other functional non-coding sequences in human and mouse developmental and disease processes. For more information, see Nature 444:499; Nature Genetics 40:158; Nature 457:854; Nature 461:199; Nature 464:409; Nature Genetics 42:806; Nature Genetics 44:89; Cell 152:895, Science 342:1241006, Cell 155:1521.
• Conceive and carry out research projects studying the roles of noncoding sequences in mammalian development and disease for publication in major peer-reviewed journals.
• Under the Principal Investigators’ mentorship, develop and implement cutting-edge computational strategies for the functional analysis of non-coding sequences in the human and mouse genomes.
• Analyze and summarize large genomic datasets and regularly present findings at lab meetings and scientific conferences.
• Collaborate with other postdoctoral fellows and technical research staff in a team-based research environment.
• Gain new skills in the area of mammalian genomics with the goal to become an increasingly independent investigator
