Open positions

If you are interested in the following positions, please email your CV to us. We are always open to potential research projects proposed by the applicants. Also email us your research plan if you have a project in your mind.

Postdoc in computational biology

We are looking for a postdoc who is interested in bioinformatics and computational biology. Potential research areas include but not limited to

  • High-performance algorithms for sequence alignment and assembly
  • Algorithms for the representation and application of pangenome data
  • Methods for the detection and the analysis of somatic or de novo mutations
  • Analysis of large-scale genomic data in the context of phylogenetics and population genetics

We are also open to potential research projects proposed by the candidates.

To apply for the position, a qualified candicate is expected to demonstrate a strong background in biology, computer science or mathematics and have past research experiences in bioinformatics and computational biology. The applicant should be proficient in programming. Familarity with a high-performance language such as C/C++/Rust may be a plus depending on the projects.

Staff scientist on algorithm development

We are looking for a staff scientist who is interested in developing high-performance algorithms for sequence alignment, de novo assembly, pangenome representation, application of pangenome data structures or other projects the applicant may propose. The candidate will focus on the development of new algorithms but may maintain our existing tools sometimes.

To apply for the position, a qualified candidate is expected to be proficient in a high-performance language such as C, C++ or Rust and have research experiences in bioinformatics and computational biology.
