A Postdoctoral position in computational biology/machine learning is available in the Statistical Genomics and Systems Genetics group (http://www.ebi.ac.uk/research/stegle) at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) located on the Wellcome Genome Campus near Cambridge in the UK.
Are you interested in finding innovative ways to predict gene/disease associations from high-throughput genomic data? As an EMBL-EBI postdoc working on aCTTV (Centre for Therapeutic Target Validation) project, you will be able to leverage expertise and datasets from the CTTV partner organisations to derive powerful computational and statistical methods to predict gene/disease targets. The project offers a unique opportunity to address a major question in human health by deriving innovative statistical models that fully exploit cutting-edge datasets generated within the CTTV.
This is a position with the Stegle group at EMBL-EBI, which is developing statistical data-integration methods to predict drug targets by combining information about gene/disease associations from several different sources.
The CTTV is a public-private initiative that is using high-throughput datasets to generate evidence on the validity of therapeutic target, and is committed to sharing its data openly with the scientific community.
