Scholarship Description:

The lab of Dr. Kaifu Chen ( in the Harvard Medical School at Boston Children’s Hospital is seeking a bioinformatics postdoc for single-cell multi-omics research. The postdoc will develop bioinformatics technology for single-cell analysis of gene expression regulation. Experiences with 3D genome, RNA methylation, cardiovascular system, and cancer research are preferred. The lab is productive in recent years in both developmentof bioinformatics methods (Nature Communications2020a, Nature Communications 2020b, Genome Biology 2020, etc.) and biomedical research on the basis ofcutting-edge bioinformatics techniques (Nature 2018, Science 2019, Circulation 2020, Nature Cell Biology 2021, etc). Both the School and Hospital offer rich and dynamic research environments. The location is embraced by tens of other top institutes such as the Massachusetts General Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and Broad Institute. The position will have salary commensurate with training and experience.
