Job Description

A postdoctoral position is available immediately in A/Prof Henry Yang and Dr Yvonne Tay’s groups for a highly motivated PhD graduate with experience in Bioinformatics (computational genomics). The focus of the lab is on deciphering regulatory RNA networks in the context of cancer (reviewed in Tay et al, Nature 2014; also see Tay et al, Cell 2011; Chan et al, NAR 2018).

Candidates should have backgrounds in bioinformatics, genomics, computer science, statistics, or other related fields. Those who are interested in computational genomics, particularly in analysis and integration of various genomics data, are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will analyse and integrate in-house genomic (RNA-seq, small RNA-seq, microarray etc) data sets and also utilize publicly available genomic/clinical data sets to identify novel biological patterns and regulatory mechanisms. Candidates are required to have a strong quantitative and statistics background, as well as strong programming skills (e.g. Python, Perl, C, C++, Java, R or other related programming knowledge), and excellent skills in handling Linux clusters and genomic databases. Experience in analyzing single cell and/or long-read sequencing data is ideal but not required.

Applications should send full curriculum vitae (not more than 3 pages) and the names, addresses and contact numbers of 3 professional references to and with the subject title – ‘Application for HY/YT postdoc position’.
