Open Postdoctoral Fellow Positions

The Department of Biostatistics has open postdoctoral fellow positions.

 

Postdoctoral Position with Professor Jeffrey S. Morris

Area:  Computational statistics with applications in biostatistics and bioinformatics

Duties and responsibilities:  The postdoctoral fellows will work under the supervision of Dr. Jeffrey S. Morris. The primary research focus will be on developing novel statistical and computational methodology for the analysis of complex, high-dimensional object data, including high-dimensional functional data, neuroimaging data, shape data, and genomics data.  Potential application areas include functional MRI, electrical response potentials (ERP), shape data, and various types of genomics data including copy number, methylation, miRNA, microarray, proteomics, and next generation sequencing data.  Some potential projects include integration of information across outcomes of various types, and flexible modeling approaches that incorporate both biological knowledge and empirical structures.

Position qualifications:  We seek a highly motivated individual with a Ph.D. in statistics/biostatistics or a related quantitative field.  Must have strong methodology training in statistics/biostatistics; strong programming skills, in particular R/Matlab and preferably one lower level computer language such as C or Fortran; and interest in statistical  methodology research.  Interest or background in bioinformatics, genomics, proteomics or neuroimaging is a plus.  Expertise or skills in any of the following areas are desirable:  analysis of high-dimensional data, Bayesian MCMC computations, Bayesian variable selection and sparsity priors, linear models, nonparametric regression, spatio-temporal data, multivariate techniques, functional data analysis.

Application: Interested applicants should send a cover letter and resume (with three references) to:

pcunning@mdanderson.org
(subject line: Morris postdoc)

Application deadline: Consideration of applications will begin immediately and continue until positions are filled.

Salary: $65,000 USD/year

Benefits for postdoctoral fellows can be found on the MD Anderson Postdoctoral Research Programs web page.

Postdoctoral Position with Professor Kim-Anh Do

Area: Computational statistics with applications in studies of integrative high-dimensional omics

Duties and responsibilities:  The postdoctoral fellow will work under the supervision of Dr. Kim-Anh Do and a collaborating scientist, computer scientist,  or clinician. The primary research focus will be applying novel statistical and computational methods to the analysis of complex, high-dimensional omic data. Potential application areas include  MD Anderson's high-priority moon shot research studies that involve various types of  high-throughput  proteomic, genomic, sequencing, and imaging data, with particular emphasis on developing integrative and flexible models that incorporate both biological knowledge and empirical structures.

Position qualifications:  We seek a highly motivated individual with a Ph.D. in a quantitative field: computer science, engineering, statistics, biostatistics, genomics, bioinformatics, or a related field.  Must have strong training in statistics and strong programming skills, in particular R/Matlab/Python and preferably one lower-level computer language such as C or Fortran; and interest in the application of state-of-the-art statistical methods to complex data.  Interest or background in bioinformatics, genomics, proteomics is a plus.  Expertise or skills in any of the following areas is desirable: analysis of high-dimensional data, computational biology, data mining, and/or machine learning.

Application: Interested applicants should send a cover letter and résumé (with three references) to:

sdmcmillan@mdanderson.org
(subject line: KimAnhDo postdoc)

Deadline: Consideration of applications will begin immediately and continue until positions are filled.

Salary: $65,000 USD/year
