A dynamic, innovative research laboratory of Pharmacogenomics at the College of Pharmacy, Oregon State University (OSU) is seeking to fill a PhD position in Bioinformatics/Systems Biology. The laboratory is highly collaborative with range of partnerships located in United States (National Institutes of Health and different colleges of OSU) and abroad (Norway, Brazil). These papers (Nature Medicine. 2011 Nov 20;17(12):1585-93; BMC Bioinformatics. 2011 Jul 14;12:286; Nature Communications. 2013;4:1806) illustrate where we were about a year ago. Currently we have more “things” going on such as reconstruction and analysis of transkingdom networks from microbial metagenomics and host transcriptomics in animal and clinical systems.
The successful candidate will be executing research projects in Systems Bio/Medicine focused on the analysis of pharmacogenomics, metagenomic, transcriptomics, and metabolomics and other ‘omics’ data derived from the human samples and experimental animals. Analyses will broadly focus on systems-level studies using different modeling approaches including network analysis of interaction between drug, host and its microbiome, as well as discovery of biomarkers relevant to human disease such as cervical cancer and immunodeficiency.
The position is fully funded by College of Pharmacy.
Requirements for the position include those of the graduate program include TOEFL, GRE (the exact thresholds can be different from one year to another). Requirements of the Morgun’s laboratory: A Bachelor or Master degree in Computer Science, Biology, Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, Mathematical Biology, or a related field and ability to collaborate well are required. Beginner/intermediate level in programming and/or scripting languages appropriate for scalable data analysis (e.g., R, Perl, Python, etc.) is required. Familiarity with functional genetic and/or genomic data, as indicated by the publication record and experience with biological databases and wet lab is a plus.
