Join the Lichtarge Computational Biology Lab
We are happy to help with running traces. Just contact us.
Prospective Ph.D. students can join the lab after admittance to any one of these Baylor College of Medicine's Structural and Computational Biology and Molecular Biophysics program, the Department of Molecular and Human Genetics, the Program in Developmental Biology, the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, or the Program in Cell and Molcular Biology, and after completing an initial lab rotation. Check out the relevant website.
The research would be in the areas of computational biology and comparative genomics, protein and peptide design, function prediction and bacterial genomics instability. The exact choice of topic would depend on the interests of the applicant. Appointment are for two-three years, but may be extended further.
Applicants with backgrounds in bioinformatics, computer science, physics, statistics, or biology would be well-suited. Skills in problem solving and in programming are necessary (Unix/Linux, C, C++, perl, HTML/java), and experience with databases is desirable.
Applicants with experimental skills in protein biochemistry and cellular biology are also desirable.
Typically applications require a CV and 3 letters of references.
