Postdoctoral Fellowship in Personalized Genomic Medicine:

The Johnson Lab at Boston University is currently searching for two motivated postdoctoral fellows with interest in applying computational/statistical methods to high-throughput genomics in for application in personalized medicine. The fellows will be involved in the development of innovative methods for Next Generation sequencing technologies and will have access to data from multiple patient cohorts specifically gathered for the development of methods for predicting disease, diagnosing disease, identifying the specific cause of disease, and developing personalized drug treatment regimes. The Johnson Lab has recently moved to the Division of Computational Biomedicine at the Boston University School of Medicine which provides a unique environment for statistical/computational postdocs to interact with biologists and physicians in an integrated and highly effective manner. Applicants should have strong programming skills and experience in statistics, bioinformatics, computer science or a related field. Interested applicants should send their CV and a brief research statement to:

We have moved to Boston University!

November 4th, 2011 in News.

We are excited to announce that we have recently moved our lab to Boston University. We have joined the Division of Computational Biomedicine in order to focus on problems in personalized medicine. Computational Biomedicine is a newly formed division in the Department of Medicine at BU, where computational biologists, laboratory biologists and MDs work together in a highly collaborative setting. It will give us an excellent environment to make an impact in the field!
