Summary

The Chen laboratory in the Department of Molecular and Human Genetics, Baylor College of Medicine, seeks a talented and self-driven post-doctoral fellow to join our group.  Leading the effort of generating single cell spatially resolved cell atlas of the human visual system, our group is newly funded by multiple grants from CZI as part of the human cell atlas network (https://www.humancellatlas.org/).  The perspective postdoc fellow will work closely with other lab members and our collaborators in the network to develop software tools and perform analysis of single-cell multi-omics and spatial transcriptomic data to generate the cell atlas of the human visual system and characterize diseases at the single-cell resolution.  With a combination of both experimental and computational approaches, our group provides an excellent environment for interdisciplinary research focusing on genetics and genomics in the visual system.  Members in our group have diverse backgrounds, such as genetics, medicine, engineering, computer science, and statistics.  Many cutting-edge technologies are utilized in our research, such as next-generation sequencing, single cell multi-omics, and deep learning, in combination with cell culture, retinal organoid, and mice and non-human primate models, offering excellent opportunities in cross-training to further expand your skills.
