The Department of Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics (DCMB, Medical School) and the Department of Environmental Health Sciences (EHS, School of Public Health) is seeking a bioinformatics post-doctoral fellow. This position will support innovative, cross-disciplinary multi-omics research, especially in the areas of epigenomics, gene expression, and regulation in response to environmental exposures (including single-cell RNA-seq) and develop novel bioinformatics algorithms in these areas. The fellow will work jointly with Drs. Maureen Sartor (Associate Professor of DCMB and Biostatistics) and Dana Dolinoy (Professor of Environmental Health Sciences and Nutritional Sciences), with partial funding from the NIEHS-funded Michigan Center on Lifestage Environmental Exposures and Disease (M-LEEaD). The specific research topics will be determined based on the expertise of the fellow and mutual interests of the fellow and mentors. Multiple publications as part of our team science efforts are expected. The position is expected to be over a 2-year period, with opportunities for extension or promotion.
Ph.D. degree in bioinformatics, molecular biology, toxicology, environmental health sciences, or a related field.
The successful applicant will have experience with high-throughput sequencing data analysis, be comfortable working in linux and R, and have strong communication and interpersonal skills. Experience in environmental science, biostatistics, and with epigenomics data analysis are preferred. Experience with metabolomics data analysis is a plus.
Salary will be determined based on years of experience and qualifications, and will satisfy the NIH NRSA guidelines. The fellow will receive the excellent benefits offered at the University of Michigan (benefits.umich.edu).
