The Banovich lab is looking for postdoctoral researchers

The Banovich lab is recruiting postdoctoral researchers to lead functional genomics efforts in the lab. The lab is combining single cell omics, classic genomics technologies, and experimental approaches to understand the gene regulatory architecture underlying disease and treatment response at a single cell resolution. We have three main ongoing project in the lab (see Projects for more info) based in two main disease areas, a rare form of lung disease called idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and cancer. The lab has access to a number of unique sample sets in these areas along with exceptional institutional sequencing and computational resources. 


At a minimum the candidate will be required to have a PhD in the areas of genetics, biology, or computational biology, and have a demonstrated publication record in the area of genomics. We desire a candidate with experience in both experimental and computational approaches, preferably with proficiency in at least one common programming language (preferably Python or R). Any candidates with experience in the areas of single cell RNA-sequencing or CRISPR/Cas9 are highly encouraged to apply.
