The Wasserman laboratory at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada) analyzes regulatory sequences controlling when and where genes are transcribed. We are looking for postdoctoral candidates interested in transcriptional regulation. The ideal postdoctoral candidate will develop innovative computational approaches to characterize, analyze, and interpret cis-regulatory elements in the human genome. The project will either focus on the identification of mutations in whole genome sequence data likely to disrupt the activity of genes or the applied design of cis-regulatory sequences for application in gene therapy. The work will include aspects of machine learning, model development, and large-scale data analysis. The ideal candidate will have an interest in developing novel computational approaches based on emerging knowledge from laboratory studies.
