Dr. Minji Kim at the University of Michigan is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to perform high-throughput sequencing experiments probing transcriptome, epigenome, and 3D genome both at bulk-cell and single-cell levels. Her group studies the relationship between chromatin organization and gene regulation at various time-scales. To do so, the team combines experimental techniques (Hi-C, ChIA-PET, RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq) and develops computational methods to analyze the data.
There will be unique opportunities for the postdoctoral researcher to closely collaborate with computational biologists within the group to analyze the datasets with innovative approaches, and to broadly collaborate within the Department of Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics, Michigan Medicine, and the Michigan Institute for Data Sciences (MIDAS).
The exact title and salary will be determined based on the candidate’s experiences and qualifications.
This postdoctoral position will focus on the experimental components of several projects:
identifying allele-specific chromatin interactions in differentiating mouse embryonic stem cells;
dissecting the molecular mechanisms behind the formation of regulatory loops;
developing new 3D genome mapping technologies.
Ph.D. in Molecular Biology, Human Genetics, Biochemistry, Biological Sciences, Bioengineering, or related field
