The Farnham Laboratory

** New: Postdoc Position Available **

The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) recently expanded the Encyclopedia of DNA Elements (ENCODE) Project, the goal of which is to comprehensively identify sequence-based functional elements in the human genome; see for details. In collaboration with groups at Yale and Harvard, the Farnham lab will be using the technique of chromatin immunoprecipitation to identify binding sites for human transcription factors on a genome-wide scale.

We currently have an open postdoctoral position concerned with the bioinformatics aspects of this, and related, projects. In particular, we are looking for postdoc candidates with experience in sequence alignment, analysis of ChIP-chip or ChIP-seq data, and motif discovery.
