Postdoctoral Fellows and Students | Princess Margaret Cancer Centre - University Health Network

The Hoffman lab is seeking postdoctoral fellows for several projects in computational genomics and machine learning. Selected projects include:

  1. Integrating epigenomic and sequence data to better understand human gene regulation.
  2. Creating models of transcription factor binding that allow us to predict the effects of perturbations.
  3. Developing deep learning techniques to find novel behavior in multiple functional genomics datasets.

Required qualifications: Doctorate in computational biology, computer science, electrical engineering, statistics, or physics, obtained within the last five years. Submitted first-author or joint first-author papers in genomics or machine learning research. Experience in scientific programming in a Unix environment.

Not required, but preferred qualifications: Experience with epigenomics and graphical models. First-author papers published in peer-reviewed journals, refereed conference proceedings, or a preprint archive. Experience programming in Python, R, C, and C++.
