A postdoctoral position in COMPUTATIONALBIOLOGY is available in the laboratory of Dr. Peter Koo at the Simons Center for Quantitative Biology (SCQB) at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Interested candidates should send a cover letter with a brief statement of research interests, CV, and contact information for three references to email@example.com. The Koo Laboratory studies the functional impact of genomic mutations through a computational lens using data-driven artificial intelligence (AI) solutions. We are broadly interested in applications for studying gene regulation and protein (dys)function. Our approach develops methods to interpret high-performing AI models to distill knowledge that they learn from big, noisy biological sequence data. Our goal is to elucidate biological mechanisms that underlie sequence-function relationships, with a broader aim of advancing precision medicine for complex diseases, including cancer. For more information, check out https://koo-lab.github.io/.
The successful candidate will apply deep learning methods to address challenging biological problems that fall within the lab’s broad interests in gene regulation, alternative splicing, or RNA-protein interactions. Candidates with a strong biology background and experience solving biological problems with computational methods are encouraged to apply. Prior experience with machine learning is a plus, but not necessary.
This position is affiliated with the Simons Center for Quantitative Biology (SCQB).
A PhD in Biology, Bioinformatics, Biophysics or other related field is required. The ideal candidate will be driven, have strong communication skills and a desire to work in an interdisciplinary environment. Experience with python programming is required.
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory offers a highly collaborative social and scientific environment as well as a competitive salary and benefits in a beautiful location about one hour from New York City.
If you are interested in joining the lab, please send a CV and a statement of your research accomplishments and interests along with the names of three references to: firstname.lastname@example.org as well as submitting an online application here: http://cshl.peopleadmin.com/postings/16200

About Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
Since 1890, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) has been a global leader in research and education. The international scientific community at CSHL provides a unique and stimulating atmosphere for doctoral research?an environment where students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty work side-by-side. The Watson School of Biological Sciences (WSBS) was founded on the belief that with well thought-out mechanisms, enthusiastic involvement of faculty, and highly motivated students, an innovative curriculum could be provided that would allow students to earn a doctoral degree in a shorter time than in traditional programs without compromising the quality of their training. The curriculum is designed to train students to become scholars and independent thinkers.
