Post Doctoral Fellow (Population Genomics)

Position Code: SC10334

We are inviting application for a post-doctoral research fellow position in Prof Jianjun Liu’s lab at the Genome Institute of Singapore. Successful candidate will join a competitive research program of human genetics with a focus on studying the genetic bases of complex diseases and related phenotypes (

Currently, the group is working on several large-scale whole genome sequencing (WGS) projects, such as SG10K project where 10,000 Singaporean individuals are being analyzed by whole genome sequencing (WGS) (

Another new direction of research is electronic medical record (EMR)-based genomic study where EMR information and genomic data will be integrated to advance understanding on disease development, progression and treatment outcome. As a member of our collaborative research group, the candidate will lead the effort on developing and evaluating analytical methods and pipelines for large-scale high dimensional genomic data analysis.

Requirements :

Successful candidate must be highly motivated with a PhD degree on population/statistical genetics, bioinformatics or related disciplines from a reputable university, strong research background and a proven track record of publications. The candidate need to have strong programing skills and hand-on experience on analyzing large-scale genomic data, while possessing a familiarity with high performance computing platforms and clusters, statistical software and bioinformatics web tools.

Prior experience in handling large next-generation sequencing datasets is necessary. The candidate must have aptitude for collaborative research and excellent communication skills.

Interested candidates should send CV and three references to Prof Jianjun Liu at
