Bioinformaticians

The newly established Moore lab is looking for highly motivated bioinformaticians to be a founding members of our team. We study gene regulation and its role in human disease by interpreting large scale multi-omic datasets using machine learning approaches.

  • Experience working with multi-omic data (e.g. RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq) and data processing pipelines

  • Familiarity with Linux/Unix operating systems

  • Strong understanding of statistical analysis methods

  • Experience with programming in Python and R

  • Ability to work independently and as a member of a team

  • Good time management and organizational skills

  • Experience with single cell data (e.g., scRNA-seq, scATAC-seq, etc)

  • Familiarity with machine learning algorithms, particularly deep learning frameworks

  • Good understanding of gene regulation mechanisms

Post-Docs

The newly established Moore lab is looking for highly motivated post-doctoral fellows to be founding members of our team. We study gene regulation and its role in human disease by interpreting large scale multi-omic datasets using machine learning approaches. Ideal candidates will have extensive experience in multi-omic data processing and analysis (RNA-seq, ATAC-seq, ChIP-seq, etc.) and are interested in learning about the fundamental mechanisms governing gene regulation (regulating transcription, splicing, translation, etc.). Candidates from related fields, such as computer science or biomedical engineering, with machine learning experience are also highly encouraged to apply.

To Apply:

Interested candidates should email a cover letter, CV, and 3 references to: Jill.Moore@umassmed.edu
