Dr. Minji Kim at the University of Michigan is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to perform high-throughput sequencing experiments probing transcriptome, epigenome, and 3D genome both at bulk-cell and single-cell levels. Her group studies the relationship between chromatin organization and gene regulation at various time-scales. To do so, the team combines experimental techniques (Hi-C, ChIA-PET, RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq) and develops computational methods to analyze the data.
There will be unique opportunities for the postdoctoral researcher to closely collaborate with computational biologists within the group to analyze the datasets with innovative approaches, and to broadly collaborate within the Department of Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics, Michigan Medicine, and the Michigan Institute for Data Sciences (MIDAS).
The exact title and salary will be determined based on the candidate’s experiences and qualifications.
Michigan Medicine improves the health of patients, populations and communities through excellence in education, patient care, community service, research and technology development, and through leadership activities in Michigan, nationally and internationally. Our mission is guided by our Strategic Principles and has three critical components; patient care, education and research that together enhance our contribution to society.
