Post-Doctoral Fellow in Bioinformatics
Fully affiliated with the University of Toronto and home to members of the Faculties of Medicine, the Ontario Cancer Institute (OCI) is part of one of Canada's largest hospital-based research centers. As one of the top five cancer research institutes in North America the OCI fosters a rich academic and collegial environment. Combining research excellence with state-of-the-art infrastructure, the OCI is investing heavily in strategic research platforms and has developed research capacity in areas such as Epigenomics, Genomics, Proteomics, Clinical Technologies, and Clinical Studies to drive investigations into human biology and health care now and into the future.
As part of the OCI Functional Epigenomics Group and affiliated with the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research (OICR), Dr. Mathieu Lupien is currently seeking applications for a post-doctoral fellow in bioinformatics applied to functional epigenomics. The work will focus on defining the role of the chromatin landscape (maps of epigenetic modifications, nucleosome position and open chromatin) on transcriptional regulation in cancer. The successful candidate will be involved in the development of novel algorithms and softwares for the integrative analyzes of various genome-wide datasets derived from massively parallel sequencing (ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, whole-genome-seq, etc). More information available at:
Candidates should have a strong background in computational biology, bioinformatics or biostatistics, hold a doctoral degree in a relevant field, be looking for a collaborative and dynamic environment, and have a track record of productivity and innovation. Prior experience manipulating massively parallel sequencing datasets is an asset but not a requirement. The salary of this yearly renewable position will be established according to institutional guidelines.
We thank all applicants for applying, however, only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
