Postdoctoral researcher positions (NIH funded) are available in the laboratory of Dr. Daifeng Wang (https://daifengwanglab.org/ ) in Waisman Center and Department of Biostatistics and Medical Informatics at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. Our research focuses on developing computational approaches and bioinformatics tools for understanding functional genomics and improving phenotype prediction in the human brain and brain diseases. The selected candidates will work in an interdisciplinary environment and have a chance to collaborate with PIs from Waisman Center, UW-Madison and other top institutes.
The applicant should have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in bioinformatics, computer science, data science, engineering, biology, physics or related areas, and be skilled in programming (e.g., R, Python). Prior experience on next-generation sequencing data, bioinformatics software development, machine learning is preferred. Previous background in neuroscience or genomics is a plus, but not required. Applicants are requested to send a CV and a list of 3 references to firstname.lastname@example.org & email@example.com .
Graduate research assistant positions on bioinformatics and machine learning applications are available for Ph.D. students. Potential graduate students can apply the graduate program in Biomedical Data Science at University of Wisconsin-Madison, and indicate interest in this lab. Current Ph.D. students at UW-Madison are encouraged to directly contact Dr. Daifeng Wang. Contact information is here.
Research projects are available for MS students. The students in UW-Madison are encouraged to register BMI 699/CS 799. Contact information is here.
We have a number of projects in data mining, machine learning, bioinformatics and data science for motivated undergraduate students. The students in UW-Madison are encouraged to participate in the Undergraduate Research Scholars (URS) program. Contact information is here.
