    • Independent research projects, including design of research protocols and development of procedures for the collection, verification, and management of data.
  2. Performs integrative analysis of high-throughput biological data and writes interpretative reports.
  3. Trains other researchers on the daily use of bioinformatics software and biology databases.
  4. Assists with grant preparation and reporting of methods, data, and results.

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS:

Bachelor’s degree in computer science, bioinformatics, biostatistics, or related field plus 4 years of experience; OR master’s degree in computer science, bioinformatics, biostatistics, or related field plus 2 years of experience; OR combined education and experience of 9 years.

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS:

  • Master’s degree or Ph.D. in computer science or related field highly preferred.
  • Knowledge of developmental biology and/or regenerative medicine would also be a plus.
  • Experience with single cell sequencing and epigenomics highly preferred. 
  • Proficiency with Linux system, common programing languages (e.g., R, Python, Perl, PHP), and bioinformatics analysis tools.

Postdoc Positions

Rita Levi-Montalcini Postdoctoral Fellowship

Sturgeon Lab – A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Christopher Sturgeon, at the Washington University School of Medicine, in St. Louis, MO.  We have developed novel human pluripotent stem cell (hPSC) directed differentiation strategies that generate extra-embryonic and intra-embryonic like hematopoietic progenitors. Several research projects are available, all focused on the translational potential of these hPSC-derived hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells.  Possible projects range from the development of hPSC-derived adoptive immunotherapies, epigenetic and post-transcriptional regulation of hematopoietic development, and the characterization of engraftable hematopoietic populations.

The applicant will be responsible for managing their own projects as well as collaborating both within the Sturgeon laboratory, and with other local groups. Applicants should have a PhD or MD and demonstrated relevant research experience and publication record. Excellent verbal and written English communication skills are essential. A strong background in either hematopoiesis / immunology, developmental biology, or cell biology is preferred, but not required. Previous bioinformatics or murine xenograft assays would be an asset.

Interested applicants should send a current CV, statement of research interests, and 2-3 contacts for reference letters, to Christopher Sturgeon (csturgeon@wustl.edu)

David Gutmann Lab/Neurofibromatosis Center – positions available in hiPSC modeling of pediatric low grade tumors and preventing vision loss from optic glioma. Interested candidates should email a letter of intent and CV to David H. Gutmann MD, PhD (gutmannd/at/wustl.edu) and visit http://gutmannlab.wustl.edu 

Mysorekar Lab – Two postdoctoral fellowships are available in the broad field of host-microbial interactions (host organs: urinary bladder and placenta) and microbe (viruses/bacterial pathogens/commensal microbiota). Send a CV with statement of research interests and 3 references to Indira Mysorekar (imysorekar/at/wustl.edu).
