Description

Postdoctoral position in bioinformatics and computational biology: The Popescu group at the Institute for Genomics, Biocomputing and Biotechnology (IGBB) seeks applicants for a postdoctoral research associate position in bioinformatics and computational biology. The postdoctoral associate will participate in research exploring the computational biology of plant genomes, develop methods and tools for comparative analysis of several plant species and analyze the structure and dynamics of gene networks. The work will require developing pipelines for analysis of plant NGS data (RNASeq, HiC, long/short reads assembly, metagenomics), new bioinformatics methods and algorithms for transcriptome dynamics analysis, regulatory networks inference, gene networks alignment, and CNV and SNP detection and association. The work will involve integration of multiple experimental datasets (genotype-phenotype analysis, transcriptomics, proteomics), to predict conserved pathways, to perform analyses of structure and dynamics of plant gene networks and to identify signal-processing networks in multiple plant species.

Qualifications: PhD in bioinformatics, computational sciences, or a related field.

Requirements: Experience in computational biology and bioinformatics; good computer programming skills; knowledge of NGS technologies and pipelines; familiarity with HPC and cloud computing bioinformatics environments; a strong interest in developing quantitative biology methods and tools; good communication skills and an ability to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team.

How to Apply: Applicants are encouraged to email a one-page cover letter and CV (including skills, previous research/education, GPA, and the contacts of three references) to gvp18@msstate.edu. Please set the email subject line as "[Postdoctoral_associate_application] Full name". The Mississippi State University is an EEO employer (http://www.policies.msstate.edu/policypdfs/0302.pdf).

IGBB: Popescu's group at IGBB focuses on computational and high-throughput quantitative approaches to study biological networks and processes in order to understand evolution and dynamics at the molecular and cellular levels. We seek to infer plant protein interactions, analyze the properties of biochemical networks, and study the dynamics of signaling pathways. We are pursuing a multidisciplinary approach that includes high-throughput genomics and proteomics, mathematical and computational modeling and bioinformatics tool development.
