Postdoctoral Fellow, Master or PhD position in Biostatistics, Statistic Genetics, Bioinformatics, Systems Biology and Genomics are available at the Interdisciplinary Platform of Biostatistics of Shanghai Jiao Tong University Department of Mathematics , and the Translational Research Center for Integrative Omics Program for Translational Medicine of Shanghai Jiao Tong University Bio-X Institutes.
We employs multiple complementary approaches coupling statistical computation and experimentation to study the diversity of the human genome, transcriptome, and proteome and their roles in human complex diseases. We work in a highly multidisciplinary and collaborative environment with effective interactions between computational scientists, experimental biologists, statisticians, and clinical teams.
We are looking for qualified graduates to work in projects within the areas of developing Next Generation Sequencing and Microarray computational or statistical tools , and analysis of multiple omic datastes(GWAS, transcriptome, proteome, and metabolome) in human cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and neuropsychiatric disorders for the mission of translational research.
Candidates must have achieved academic excellence and be highly motivated to pursue a PhD/master project in one of the above research areas. Applicants must hold or receive, before enrollment in the program, a university degree that qualifies them to enter a Postdoctoral Fellow, PhD or MS. The positions are intended for strong candidates with background in Statistics, Computer Science, or Human Genomics/Genetics. Applicants with proven experiences/expertise in statistic genomics, computational systems biology, and high-throughput next-generation sequencing data analysis are preferred. Excellent English or Chinese(mandarin) communication skills are required, and prospective candidates should be highly motivated and able to think creatively. Truly exceptional candidates with only computational or statistic background will also be strongly considered.
Shanghai Jiao Tong University(http://www.sjtu.edu.cn), one of the top-ranked academic institutions in China, was established in 1896, and has been leading the scientific research in China. Bio-X Institutes (http://www.bio-x.cn/en/index.php) is a well-established interdisciplinary centre at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University. The current director of the Institutes is Prof. Lin He, a senior fellow of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the honorary director is Prof. Steve Zhu, Nobel Laureate in Physics. Several in-house facilities are active, including the next generation sequencing facility with Illumina HiSeq 2000 and high-performance computers.
