Open Date

Apr 30, 2024DescriptionThe group of Martin Zhang within the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University is looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher to develop computational methods to address exciting problems in statistical genetics. The new postdoc will be expected to lead new computational method development with significant biological findings. The main research focus in the Zhang group is the development of computational methods to systematically map genes and cellular contexts for heritable diseases and complex traits. The group also works on deep learning methods for cohesive integration of multimodal genetics and genomics data. Current interests in statistical genetics include disease-relevant cellular contexts and genes, expression quantitative trait loci (eQTLs), single-cell genomics, and genetic architecture of diseases and complex traits. Recent methods from the lab have been published in journals such as Nature, Nature Genetics, Nature Communications, The American Journal of Human Genetics, eLife, and conferences such as NeuRIPS, ICML, AISTATS, RECOMB.
