    The newly established Moore lab is looking for highly motivated post-doctoral fellows to be founding members of our team. We study gene regulation and its role in human disease by interpreting large scale multi-omic datasets using machine learning approaches. Ideal candidates will have extensive experience in multi-omic data processing and analysis (RNA-seq, ATAC-seq, ChIP-seq, etc.) and are interested in learning about the fundamental mechanisms governing gene regulation (regulating transcription, splicing, translation, etc.). Candidates from related fields, such as computer science or biomedical engineering, with machine learning experience are also highly encouraged to apply.

    To Apply:

    Interested candidates should email a cover letter, CV, and 3 references to: Jill Moore at Jill.Moore@umassmed.edu

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
