The group of Jonathan Göke at the Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) is looking for an enthusiastic postdoctoral fellow in computational or statistical genomics.

Our main research focus is the large-scale analysis of gene expression ('transcriptomics'). We apply state of the art technology at the GIS to study how the transcriptome reflects clinical and molecular phenotypes. We analyse large scale transcriptomics data from cell lines, patient samples, and organoid models using bulk RNA-Sequencing, single cell RNA-Sequencing, long read sequencing, and spatial transcriptomics. Projects are available that involve methods development for new transcriptomics technology (single cell RNA-Seq, long read RNA-Seq), statistical modeling of biases in high throughput sequencing data, and integration of electronic health records with genomics data.
