One or two postdoctoral positions are available immediately in Oncinfo Lab, Department of Computer Science at Texas State University.
The successful candidates will contribute to development and application of cutting edge computational methods to analyze RNA-seq and other expression data from large cohorts. They will contribute to highly collaborative studies which are designed to infer biological information from gene networks by modeling data using Bayesian networks, co-expression networks, and so on. Network analysis can provide useful biological insights such as identifying the causal relationships between genes and discovering gene modules associated with diseases. The results are expected to be published in highly ranked journals.
Dr. Habil Zare is the founder of Oncinfo Lab which has active collaborations with the British Columbia Cancer Agency, an outstanding research reputation in oncology throughout the world. Also, Oncinfo Lab collaborates with R&D departments of top pharmaceutical companies such as Pfizer and Novartis.
