The Taylor Lab in the Biology Department at Johns Hopkins University is recruiting postdoctoral scholars with expertise in Bioinformatics, Genomics, and Computational Biology. The lab currently has research interests in a number of areas:

  • Genomics and Epigenomic mechanisms of Gene regulation, the role of transcription factors and chromatin structure in global gene expression, development, and differentiation. We are particularly interested in the role of 3D genome organization in gene regulation and integration of sequencing and imaging approaches.

  • Transcriptomics, particularly resolving full-length transcripts and understanding regulation of isoform usage.

  • Vertebrate comparative and functional genomics, particularly through the development of novel machine learning, data mining, and data integration methods incorporating genomic sequence and experimental data.

  • The Galaxy project, which builds software and infrastructure to make computational biology accessible to experimentalists. Research foci include both the development of analysis and data management tools, and the development of novel user interfaces and interactive visualizations for analyzing large-scale data.

  • Distributed and high-performance computing for data intensive science, specifically genomics.

We are seeking post-docs with complementary research interests. Well developed research plans that complement but extend the lab's current interests will be looked upon favorably. Specific area of academic background is flexible. Our group is located in the Biology Department; however because our work is largely computational, programming / software development experience is important.

Applicants should submit a CV, a statement of research interests or research plan, and three references to james@taylorlab.org.
