Recruitment - Postdoctoral Fellows
Recruiting Post-Doc for BITS Bioinformatics Lab at Academia Sinica
Date of Expiry : 2015-01-28 ~ 2015-04-30
Position : Post-Doctoral Fellow
Responsibilities : What results in the differences between individuals from less than 0.1% variation in the human genomes? How does the same genetic content develop into various distinct cell types? Based on the central dogma of biology, where DNA is transcribed into RNA and then translated into proteins, we investigate how regulatory systems shape the myriads of life. If you have considered these issues or happens to be an expert, we would like to welcome you to join our lab.

Our lab is led by Dr. Huai-Kuang Tsai, and we aim to deepen our knowledge in biological sciences through bioinformatics and genome sciences. We employ computational techniques and statistical methods to study gene regulatory mechanisms and molecular evolution by analyzing genomics big data.
Requirements : We are recruiting people from all backgrounds as long as you are curious about life science and gene regulation. We expect candidates to be comfortable with programming and keeping an interest in biology.

Candidates should
1. Be curious about bioinformatics

Bonus qualities include
1. Experiences in various kinds of grand tours (e.g. backpacking, cross-country cycling, mountain climbing, marathon etc.)
2. Skills in machine learning/data mining, big data analysis, statistical tool R
3. Like sports (our lab participates in Academia Sinica softball tournaments)
4. Programming ability (any language)
5. Basic biology knowledge
Salary : As specified by Ministry of Science and Technology
