Job Title: Postdoctoral Fellow - Regulatory Biology Laboratory, Dr. Satchin Panda
Status: Regular Full Time
Benefits Eligible: Yes
Laboratory/Department: Regulatory Biology Laboratory
Research in the lab is geared towards identifying molecular components and events critical for transmitting light information from the eye to the master oscillator in the brain.
Position Description:

A postdoctoral researcher/bioinformatics specialist position is immediately available for three years to lead a project focused on tissue-specific and temporal variation in gene expression. The candidate will work in a highly collaborative team of researchers at Salk and at collaborating institutes in the U.S.

Position Tasks:

  • Compile large scale multi-tissue time-series gene expression data from rodents and non-human primates.
  • Analyze full-length transcripts to find splice variants.
  • Integrate gene expression and genome sequence data to find cis-acting elements.
  • Integrate gene expression and genome sequence information to find allele specific gene expression.
  • Comparative genomics between non-human primate, human, and rodent models.
  • Integrate and analyze time-series gene expression and metabolomics datasets.
  • Manage project to meet defined milestones and timeline.
  • Coordinate efforts among the wet-lab and sequencing cores to ensure sequence data generation, archiving, sharing, and analyses.
  • Use appropriate statistical models and tests.
  • Prepare reports, presentation, and manuscripts.

Compensation: Commensurate with qualifications and in accordance with institutional and federal guidelines.
Education:

Ph.D. in bioinformatics, data science or allied field with specific focus on analyses of genetic variation, RNA-sequence analyses, and comparative genomics. The use of machine learning or AI tools in gene expression data is preferable.
Experience:

  • Experience should be evidenced in peer-reviewed publications or manuscripts in pre-publication archive.
  • Familiarity with various sequence analysis tools, relevant programming, and data visualization tools is necessary.

Application Instructions:

Applicants should send C.V., statement of research interests and experience, and three references to pandalab@salk.edu .
