Description

 

University of Colorado – School of Medicine


Research Associate
 

The University of Colorado Denver l Anschutz Medical Campus seeks individuals with demonstrated commitment to creating an inclusive learning and working environment.  We value the ability to engage effectively with students, 


POSITION CLASSIFICATION:  RESEARCH FACULTY

Bioinformatics Fellow for the BDC and RNA Bioscience Initiative

 

The RNA Bioscience Initiative and the Barbara Davis Center (BDC) at the University of Colorado School of Medicine seek to hire an RNA Bioinformatics Fellow. The Bioinformatics Fellowship is a unique, semi-autonomous postdoctoral position at the Research Associate Level that will provide informatics training with the goal of mastering the large skill set needed for RNA bioinformatics analysis related to Type 1 Diabetes Research. The fellow will develop and apply software for the analysis of a variety of RNA sequencing and other experiments to:

  • measure the abundance of small and long non-coding RNAs
  • the diversity of mRNA isoforms by splicing in bulk and single cells
  • the association of RNA-protein interactions by RIP and CLIP-seq
  • the production of nascent RNA transcripts using GRO-seq
  • the stability of mRNAs after transcription
  • ribosomal profiling
  • in vivo RNA polymerase II distribution

We anticipate hiring a computational biology fellow who will be primarily housed at the BDC, but will have access to shared newly renovated, common space within the RBI to maximize collegial interactions with the other RBI fellows. The fellow will work with basic and translational research labs at the BDC and will also have the opportunity to interact with a variety of RNA informatics researchers on campus. The fellow will develop new visualization tools that enable interactive analysis of RNA sequencing data sets. In addition, the fellow will provide training to predoctoral student and postdoctoral students at the BDC to promote the use of RNA informatics for T1D research. Our ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in RNA analysis of immune and/or islet cells, and wish to expand their training to become proficient in both disciplines. The positions will be for two years with the possibility to extend the fellowship for an additional year. Stipends will be above the NIH recommended pay scale. Toward the end of their tenure, Fellows will have the opportunity to develop collaborations with faculty in the School of Medicine and liaise with pharmaceutical and biotech companies to secure a stable long-term position in Informatics.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae and the contact information for 3 people who will provide letters of reference.

Materials should be submitted through CU Careers.            

We will begin reviewing applications immediately and the search will remain open until the positions are filled.
