Postdoctoral fellow position in machine learning and computational biology

 

Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

 

A postdoctoral fellow position is available for investigating missing and spurious labels of protein-interaction networks. The project is led by Professor Jagath Rajapakse at the School of Computer Science and Engineering, NTU (www.ntu.edu.sg).

 

Protein-interaction networks are molecular networks where nodes represent proteins and edges represent interactions. The labels of the proteins are given by gene ontology terms. However, labels of protein networks are often spurious or missing. The postdoctoral fellow will develop techniques that are able to predict missing and spurious labels in protein-interaction networks and novel gene ontologies.

 

The position is available immediately for two years. The candidate should have a Ph.D. in related field. Experience in machine learning, natural, language processing, or Python/R programming is useful. If you are interested in the position, please send you curriculum vitae to Professor Jagath Rajapakse (asjagath@ntu.edu.sg).
