Position: Postdoctoral Researcher – Machine Learning & Regulatory Genomics
Institution: Pennsylvania State University
Location: University Park, Pennsylvania, United States
Duties: Available postdoctoral research projects will develop neural network approaches that can interpret transcription factor binding determinants by integrative analysis across many sources of regulatory genomic data (incl. ChIP-exo, ChIP-seq, etc.). We will apply these techniques in collaborative projects to understand regulatory dynamics in cell differentiation systems. Other available projects focus on developing domain-adaptive neural networks that can predict and interpret transcription factor binding patterns across species and cell types
Requirements: A Ph.D. in a relevant field is required. Interested individuals should upload their curriculum vitae, contact details for three scientific/professional references, and a personal statement of background and interests. Prior experience developing neural network applications and/or developing regulatory genomics analysis methods is preferred, but applications are also encouraged from individuals who wish to develop expertise in these domains

JOB DESCRIPTION AND POSITION REQUIREMENTS: The Mahony lab at The Pennsylvania State University is recruiting Postdoctoral Scholars for NIH- and NSF-funded projects focused on applying deep neural networks to understand gene regulatory systems. Our lab is primarily focused on understanding how the regulatory activities of transcription factors are affected by cell-specific chromatin environments. Available postdoctoral research projects will develop neural network approaches that can interpret transcription factor binding determinants by integrative analysis across many sources of regulatory genomic data (incl. ChIP-exo, ChIP-seq, etc.). We will apply these techniques in collaborative projects to understand regulatory dynamics in cell differentiation systems. Other available projects focus on developing domain-adaptive neural networks that can predict and interpret transcription factor binding patterns across species and cell types. The Mahony lab is part of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the main campus of The Pennsylvania State University (see http://mahonylab.org). We are core members of the Center for Eukaryotic Gene Regulation and the Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, which offer excellent environments for pursuing postdoctoral research in regulatory genomics. The successful candidate will be offered competitive salary and benefits packages, as well as considerable career development opportunities. Education and Experience: Prior experience developing neural network applications and/or developing regulatory genomics analysis methods is preferred, but applications are also encouraged from individuals who wish to develop expertise in these domains. A Ph.D. in a relevant field is required. Interested individuals should upload their curriculum vitae, contact details for three scientific/professional references, and a personal statement of background and interests. Additional Info: This is a limited-term appointment funded for one year from date of hire with excellent possibility of re-funding. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Penn State is committed to and accountable for advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in all of its forms. We embrace individual uniqueness, foster a culture of inclusion that supports both broad and specific diversity initiatives, leverage the educational and institutional benefits of diversity, and engage all individuals to help them thrive. We value inclusion as a core strength and an essential element of our public service mission.
