Position: Research Scientist
Institute of Physical and Chemical Research
Duties: Our mission is to understand the origins and functions of non-coding transcription in human genome, with a focus on long non-coding RNAs and enhancer RNAs. We have been at the forefront of annotating these non-coding RNAs using large-scale in-house transcriptomic datasets (e.g. FANTOM consortium). We also integrate our in-house datasets with public epigenomic and genetic (e.g. GWAS and eQTL) datasets to gain insights into the roles of non-coding RNAs in human diseases. Our team is primarily composed of bioinformatic analysts specialized in transcriptomics, but we are working closely with experimental biologists to provide bioinformatics support on technology development (e.g. single-cell transcriptomics), as well as participating other collaborative projects (e.g. Human Cell Atlas)
Requirements: A doctoral degree awarded at least 3 years ago in a field related to the (Job Description); Should have an experience and knowledge in bioinformatics; Should have solid programming skills (Perl, Python and/or R) and acquaintance with Unix/Linux; Should be familiar with genomics technologies, in particular those relevant to applications to next generation sequencing (e.g. RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, CAGE, etc.)
