Ph.D. student in computational biology and bioinformatics 
Ph.D. students wishing to conduct research in the Abyzov lab at Mayo Clinic are invited to contact Dr. Abyzov (abyzov dot alexej at mayo dot edu). The choice of the project will depend on the applicant's interests and skills. However, the research must be purely computational and focus on one of the following main fields of computational biology: population/personal human omics, cancer omics, single cell and somatic omics, and the analysis of next-generation sequencing data. Specific sub-areas of interest are discovery, annotation, and the functional annotation of human genomic variants such as SNPs, SNVs, indels, structural variations, retrotransposition, etc.

We are looking for candidates that possess motivation for independent research, have experience in computational biology or bioinformatics, and are familiar with one of the aforementioned research areas. They should have a very strong understanding of biology and be skilled in programming and using computers to solve problems (e.g., experience with C/C++ Java, Python/Perl, R/ROOT, etc.). Record of peer-reviewed publications and oral and written proficiency in English is also a big plus.


PostDoc in computational biology and bioinformatics
Applicants are invited to apply for a post-doctoral (i.e., postdoc) position in Abyzov lab at Mayo Clinic. This is a one to two year position with the possibility for an extension. The choice of project will depend on the applicant's interests and skills, however, the research must be purely computational and focus on one of the following main fields of computational biology: population/personal human omics, cancer omics, single cell and somatic omics, and the analysis of next-generation sequencing data. Specific sub-areas of interest are discovery, annotation, and the functional annotation of human genomic variants such as SNPs, SNVs, indels, structural variations, retrotransposition, etc.

The ideal applicant will have a Ph.D. in computational biology or bioinformatics, experience in one of the aforementioned research areas, demonstrate a record of peer-reviewed publications, and possess motivation for independent research. He or she should have a very strong understanding of biology and be skilled in programming and using computers to solve problems (e.g., experience with C/C++, Java, Python/Perl, R/ROOT, etc.). Oral and written proficiency in English is also a big plus.

To apply, please email your CV, including a list of publications and details for three references, to abyzov dot alexej at mayo dot edu. Please include the phrase “PostDoc application” and your full name in the subject of the email. Official announcements can be found here.


Internship in computational biology and bioinformatics

Applications are invited for a summer internship at the Mayo Clinic. Anticipated projects will be related to the analysis of whole genome sequencing data, with the aims of studying germline and somatic variants (SNPs, CNVs, etc.). The analysis will involve applications of commonly used, and in-house developed, software tools, and making biological hypothesis from statistical data analysis. Intern applicants with strong programming skills will have opportunities to participate in developing new tools and improving our existing software.  


To apply, please email your CV, including a list of publications to abyzov dot alexej at mayo dot edu. Please include the phrase “Internship application” and your full name in the subject of the email. Official announcements can be found hereherehere and here.
