Biostatistician/Research Fellow: Probe level model development for
oligonucleotide tiling microarrays.

Competitive funding is available for 2+ years to develop robust tools for
novel uses for tiling arrays in the department of Evolution and Ecology at
the University of Chicago. Fellow will lead research and author papers
relating to high density polymorphism analysis from RNA and genomic DNA
hybridization data for evolutionary genomic problems.  This may include
improvements and extensions on Single Feature Polymorphism analysis, new
gene prediction, alternative splicing, expression level eQTL analysis, ChIP
chip, and methylome analysis.  Large Data sets and new array designs will be
generated and are available focusing on the model plant Arabidopsis
thaliana.  Experience with R/Bioconductor, low level microarray analysis,
array design, HMM, empirical Bayes, linear models, experimental design, and
power analysis/simulations is important. Knowledge of Quantitative genetics,
population genetics, and evolutionary genetics is desired and further
training will be provided.

Background information is available http://natural-systems.org specifically

Please email CV and a short description of research experience/interests to
biostat at pondside.uchicago.edu Position currently available, applications
will be accepted until position is filled.
