Senior Research Scientist, Bioinformatician Cancer Science Institute
A Senior Research Scientist position is available immediately in Prof Chng Wee Joo’s groups for a highly motivated PhD graduate with experience in Bioinformatics (computational genomics). The focus of the lab is on deciphering transcriptional and genomic abnormalities in the context of blood cancer, including epigenetic and superenhancer deregulation, using single cell sequencing amongst other genomics techniques.
Candidates should have backgrounds in bioinformatics, genomics, computer science, statistics, or other related fields. Those who are interested in computational genomics, particularly in analysis of single cell sequencing data, superenhancer and chromatic interaction data, 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.
