招聘详情

The Statistical Bioinformatics Lab of the University of Iowa
(http://www.healthcare.uiowa.edu/labs/au/) is seeking candidates for postdoctoral research fellow
positions to work on sequencing analyses. Possible topics to work on include but not limited to:

1) Methodology research of Third Generation Sequencing (TGS) (especially for PacBio and Oxford
Nanopore sequencing), hybrid sequencing (Second Generation Sequencing (SGS) + TGS) and TGS-
alone methodology research are our research interest.

2) Gene isoform specific analysis, such as abundance estimation, differential analysis and regulatory
network.

3) Epigenetics analysis using PacBio sequencing, such as base modification detection.

4) Cancer transcriptome analysis. Au lab is interested in solving the complexity of cancer
transcriptome, such as tumor heterogeneity, by TGS and Hybrid-Seq.


The postdoctoral fellows will develop statistical and computational/algorithmic methods for analyses
and integration of large-scale, multi-species genomic/transcriptomic data from diverse biological and
clinical samples, including Second/Third Generation Sequencing. He/she will have the opportunity to
collaborate with internationally recognized biomedical scientists at University of Iowa Carver
College of Medicine, Stanford University, University of Oxford and Pacific Biosciences.

The applicants should have a Ph.D. degree in bioinformatics, biostatistics or closely related fields.
Strong ability in computer programming (python/perl, C/C++, R) or statistical analysis is essential.
An established track record in sequencing analysis is a significant plus.

The Carver College of Medicine of University of Iowa is among the top ten public medical schools in
National Institutes of Health funding. The University-owned teaching hospital is one of the largest in
the United States. The Department of Internal Medicine and the College of Medicine house
internationally and nationally recognized centers across the biomedicine disciplines. The University
of Iowa is located in Iowa City, a vibrant community located in the rolling hills of southeastern Iowa.
The community offers excellent nationally ranked primary and secondary schools, quality
entertainment, literary, musical and cultural opportunities, and Big 10 sporting events. Interested
candidates should send a CV and names of two referees to Prof. Kin Fai Au, 3291 CBRB, University
hof Iowa, Iowa City, IA, 52242, or email: kinfai-au@uiowa.edu
