Positions Available

Postdoctoral Fellow in Bioinformatics / Biostatistics

One postdoctoral position in bioinformatics and biostatistics is immediately available in the Department of Bioinformatics and Genomics at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. The appointee will support and complement ongoing projects in developing computational approaches/pipelines/models to integrate and analyze large-scale (epi)genomic, expression and interaction data sets for scientific discovery and validation. Candidate must have or be close to obtaining a Ph.D. in quantitative fields (including but not limited to Bioinformatics, BioStatistics, Quantitative Genetics, Computational Biology, Computer Science, Mathematics, and have demonstrated a high level of research productivity through publication in peer-reviewed conferences and journals. Extensive experiences using scripting languages (e.g. Perl, Python) and statistical/mathematical toolkits (e.g. R, SAS, Matlab, Mathematica) are required. In-depth knowledge of machine/statistical learning and mathematical modeling techniques is preferable. Proficiency with programming languages including C/C++/Java is highly desirable. As a team player working closely with cross-institutional scientists with broad areas of expertise, strong interpersonal and communication skills are essential. Applicants should email a single PDF file including cover letter, CV with publications, brief research statement and list of 3 references to Dr. Mindy Shi.

Graduate Students

We are seeking for highly motivated graduate students (Ph.D. and PSM) with undergraduate training in computer science, statistics, mathematics, physics or biological sciences. Students with interest in Bioinformatics and biomedical data analysis are encouraged to apply. Experiences in any programming language (Perl/Python/C/C++/Jave) and/or statistical/mathematical toolkits (R/Matlab/SAS/Mathematica) are desirable. Full assistantship will be provided upon admission for Ph.D. students. Please check the departmental admission page and apply through the graduate school.

Visiting Scholars and Students

We welcome visiting students, scientists and scholars with interest in bioinformatics, computational biology, medical informatics, big data analystics, machine learning, and high performance computing. Please contact Dr. Mindy Shi for details.
