Postdoctoral Researcher position in Plant Systems Biology and Epigenomics at Purdue University

The Li lab (https://www.purdue.edu/hla/sites/lilab/) at Purdue University seeks applicants for a postdoc position that offers interdisciplinary training in plant functional genomics, epigenetics and systems biology.

This position will lead projects to characterize gene regulatory networks – including epigenetic regulatory edges – underlying environmental responses or developmental processes in model plants and horticultural crops. Plant scientists who are proficient in both molecular biology and bioinformatics are highly welcomed to apply. Plant molecular biologists interested in expanding their skill set in Next-Gen Sequencing and gene regulatory network analysis are also encouraged to apply. In addition to cutting-edge molecular genetics and bioinformatics, the position also provides training in lab management and student mentoring.

Required Qualifications: PhD degree in genetics, genomics, biology, plant sciences or in any related field. The candidate should have at least four-year experience (wet lab and dry lab combined) related to plant molecular biology.

Preferred Qualifications: Prior experience in Next-Gen Sequencing experiment and analysis is highly valued. Previous research experience in epigenetic regulation (e.g. chromatin and histone modification) in environmental responses or developmental processes is a plus.

How to apply: The position is available immediately. Applications can be emailed to lilabpurdue@gmail.com, including a one-page cover letter, CV with skills and previous education/research experience, and the contacts of three references. Please kindly set the email title as “[Postdoc_application] Full name“. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled.

Bioinformatician/PhD position in Plant Systems Biology and Epigenomics at Purdue University

The Li lab (https://www.purdue.edu/hla/sites/lilab/) at Purdue University seeks applicants for a bioinformatician/PhD position.

In the Li Lab, we are interested in developing a comprehensive molecular understanding of plant responses to environmental and developmental cues at both transcriptional and epigenetic levels.  This position will lead and participate in projects to characterize gene regulatory networks underlying plant environmental and developmental responses, by processing and mining RNA-Seq and ChIP-Seq datasets.

Required Qualifications:

1) Prior experience in NGS analysis.
2) Working knowledge of Unix, R, and Perl/Python.
3) Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in genomics, biology, plant science, computer science, statistics, biological engineering, or in any related field.

Preferred qualification:

1) College level knowledge of molecular biology and genetics.
2) Experience with high performance computing.

The position is flexible and can be tailored for the experience level and career plan of the incumbent. This position could be a full-time bioinformatician, or a half-time Research Assistant, or a PhD position.

How to apply:

The bioinformatician position is available immediately. Applications can be emailed to lilabpurdue@gmail.com, including a one-page cover letter, CV including skills and research/education experience, and the contacts of three references. Please kindly set the email title as “[Bioinformatician_application] Full name“. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

To apply for the PhD position: Applicants are encouraged to email a one-page cover letter and CV (including skills, previous research/education, GPA, GRE/TOEFL, and the contacts of three references) to lilabpurdue@gmail.com. Please kindly set the email title as “[PhD_bioinfo_application] Full name“. Please also refer to the departmental webpage (https://ag.purdue.edu/hla/Hort/Pages/HLAGradProgram.aspx#AP) for application procedure, requirements and deadlines. Deadline for fall admission is May 1st, 2017.
