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 a CTTV (Centre for Therapeutic Target Validation) project, you would collaborate with research teams in CTTV partner organisations to derive new 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 the 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.
