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 the official application procedure, requirements and deadlines.

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 PhD position that offers interdisciplinary training in plant functional genomics, epigenetics and systems biology.

The PhD student will lead and participate in research projects aiming to characterize gene regulatory networks – including epigenetic regulatory edges – underlying important biological processes such as nutrient signaling and plant development. The mentoring goal is to train plant scientists with molecular toolkits and computational know-how.

Qualifications: Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in genetics, genomics, biology, plant sciences or in any related field. Candidates with a strong background in molecular biology and math are highly encouraged to apply.

How to Apply: 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_application] Full name“. Please also refer to the departmental webpage (https://ag.purdue.edu/hla/Hort/Pages/HLAGradProgram.aspx#AP) for the official application procedure, requirements and deadlines.
