A bioinformatics postdoctoral scholar position is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Hari Yalamanchili at the Neurological Research Institute (NRI), Baylor College of Medicine. We seek a passion driven scientist with strong quantitative background and expertise in developing and applying computational models to study the fundamental and translational aspects of human diseases. This position is available as part of a research project with specific goals of developing novel computational methods to integrate large-scale high-throughput genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic data sets. The postdoc will have the opportunity to interact with other computational and bench investigators and build a diverse range of expertise.

About the lab: 
Laboratory of Dr. Hari Yalamanchili focuses on: Design and development of various computational approaches to decode complex biological phenomena and underlying molecular interplay. Specifically, to decode cryptic splicing, alternative polyadenylation and gene regulatory networks in neurological disorders. Advancing RNA centric therapeutic approaches using data driven integrative machine learning techniques.  

About the Institution: 
The Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute (NRI) foster a multidisciplinary, collaborative environment to understand the genetic causes of various pediatric and adult neurological diseases and translate to novel therapeutic strategies. Website: http://www.nri.texaschildrens.org
