Postdoc position

A postdoctoral position in computational biology is available in the lab of Doron Betel at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City. Our work is focused on the development and application of computational tools for the study of post-transcriptional regulation specifically miRNA and other small regulatory RNAs. Our research is primarily based on the analysis of next-generation sequencing data and integration with functional analysis. We have several active collaborations with experimentalists and clinicians at Weill Cornell, as well as with other institutes in the areas of cancer, stem cells and neurobiology. A postdoc in the group will have the opportunity to take a leadership role in one or more of these projects, initiate new projects and foster new collaborations. We currently have a position open to work on the analysis and interpretation of miRNA targets and RNA expression data in cancer and neurobiology using novel experimental and high-throughput sequencing approaches.

An ideal candidate should have Ph.D (or equivalent) training in statistics, machine learning, algorithmic development and computational biology as well as a detailed understanding of molecular biology and genetics. Prior experience in processing high-throughput sequencing data is strongly desired.

Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Please submit a CV, a brief research statement, bibliography (or preprints), and names of at least three references to Doron Betel (dob2014 @
