Job Title: Postdoc fellow- Computational Biology, University of Chicago
Job Number: 65416
Location: Chicago, US
Post-doctoral Scholar Position available in: statistical genetics and computational analysis of disease associated and other functional variation in the human genome. A postdoctoral scholar position is available in the research group of Dr Xuanyao Liu at the University of Chicago. The Liu group develops statistical methods to understand the genetic basis of complex traits and functional genomics. The exact projects for the scholars will be flexible, though based around developing methods for analyzing and mapping QTLs in large scale genomic data, such as scATACseq, scRNA-seq and multi-omic data. The candidate will be working closely with me, and my goal is to provide ample supervision and support for the scholar to be successful in academia and industry. The candidate will also benefit from training at a campus with reinforcing strengths in statistics genetics and human genetics. Suitable candidates may come from a wide variety of quantitative / data science /functional genomics / genomics backgrounds. Those with strong expertise in computational statistics, particularly in the context of human genetics and genomics, will be preferred.
