  • Applications are invited for a computational postdoctoral fellow to drive a research program on search engines for genomic data. The Langmead Lab has developed tools (Rail-RNA, Snaptron) and resources (recount2) that altogether constitute a powerful search engine for public RNA sequencing data. The fellow will take these efforts to the next level and apply them to new data types and scientific questions.

    The fellow should have experience in areas relevant to the lab’s agenda, e.g. (a) efficient software for analyzing high-throughput biological data, especially sequencing data, (b) scalable software for analyzing many datasets at once, and (c) indexing, sketching and other techniques for making large datasets — raw or summarized — easy and efficient to query.

    Recent publications from lab members can be viewed at www.langmead-lab.org/publications/. There will be opportunities to collaborate with the excellent biomedical researchers at JHU, as well as opportunities for teaching and mentoring.

    Ideal applicants will have
    • A Ph.D. in Computer Science, Bioinformatics, or related field
    • Strong programming skills in relevant languages and frameworks such as C/C++, Python, Hadoop and Spark
    • Experience analyzing sequencing data
    • Published papers in English
    • Excellent communication skills

    The Langmead lab has a track record of developing usable, high-impact software tools for studying big genomic datasets. Projects of current and former lab members include Bowtie, Bowtie 2, Crossbow, Myrna and Rail-RNA, which together have been cited over 20,000 times.

    JHU has a large community of researchers studying methods and software for genomics. Computational genomics researchers at JHU publish in the most competitive journals in the field. For more details about the genomics community at JHU, see http://ccb.jhu.edu.
