Postdoc Position to Study Single Cell Transcriptomics in Human Neuronal Development

VIB

Leuven, Belgium

Job description

You will explore single-cell epigenomics and transcriptomics data, generated in the lab and highly focused on the developing neurons of the human cerebral cortex. Using computational approaches you will infer gene regulatory networks, and study the impact of specific genetic networks on the development of human neurons, how these compare with neurons from other species, and in pathological contexts such as intellectual deficiency and autism spectrum disorders.

This highly multidisciplinary project will be undertaken in active collaboration with the Aerts Lab, leader in bioinformatics and transcriptional mechanisms.

Depending on your expertise, you can apply machine learning techniques or statistical/Bayesian data integration techniques. You can explore big data compendia such as the emerging single-cell atlases (Human Cell Atlas, Fly Cell Atlas, etc.).

Profile

We are seeking highly motivated individuals with a strong interest in developmental neurobiology and/or evolutionary biology, with a strong background in bioinformatics.

Essential:

  • PhD in Bioinformatics, Engineering, Computer Science, Bio-engineering, or Life Sciences
  • Programming skills
  • A computational mindset and a strong interest in computational biology

Desirable but not required:

  • Experience with Machine learning is a plus, but not absolutely required.
