Postdoctoral Fellow (Human Genetics, Liu Jianjun’s Lab)

Position Code: SC10352

We are inviting applications for 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 on human genetics with a focus on studying the genetic bases of complex diseases and related phenotypes (http://www.gis.a-star.edu.sg/internet/site/investigator/investigator.php?user_id=17).

The research scope and interest of diseases are broad, including cancers, immune and imflammatory diseases, infectious diseases, cardiovascular diseases as well as pharmcogenomics. Besides long-term research activities on the discovery of disease loci through GWAS, the group is currently working on large-scale whole genome sequencing (WGS) analysis, such as SG10K project where 10,000 Singaporean individuals are being analyzed by whole genome sequencing (WGS) (www.biorxiv.org/content/early/2018/08/11/390070).

The group is also exploring electronic medical record (EMR)-based genomic analysis where EMR information and genomic data will be integrated to advance understanding of disease development, progression and treatment outcome. As a member of our collaborative research group, each candidate will lead independent research in these areas, particularly on developing new analytical strategies and methods for large-scale high dimensional genomic data analysis.

Requirements :

  • Applicants need to have a PhD degree on genomics, population/statistical genetics, bioinformatics/computer science, or related disciplines from a reputable university with strong research background and proven track record of publications.
  • Successful applicants need to have strong programing skills and hand-on experience on analyzing large-scale genomic data.
  • Successful applicants must be highly self-motivated and have aptitude for collaborative research with excellent communication skills.
Those interested to apply, please email your CV, cover letter and contact information with at least 3 references to gisrecruit@gis.a-star.edu.sg and Prof Jianjun Liu at liuj3@gis.a-star.edu.sg.

The above eligibility criteria are not exhaustive. A*STAR may include additional selection criteria based on its prevailing recruitment policies. These policies may be amended from time to time without notice.
