Computational research positions

The Altius Institute for Biomedical Sciences is a non-profit research institute in Seattle, WA.
Dr. Meuleman’s research interests span genome organization, regulatory genomics, computational epigenomics and large-scale data integration & visualization.

We currently invite applications from computational postdoctoral researchers. Successful applicants will have the flexibility to select and pursue research directions within ongoing areas of research, or develop new directions with Dr. Meuleman. Example project directions include 1) regulatory genome organization and annotation, 2) large-scale genomic data visualization and 3) synthetic sequence generation using machine learning models.

We aim for a research environment driven by curiosity, collaboration, veracity, and inclusion, so that we can do our best work together. This environment includes a strong commitment to training and teaching of skills required, and an expectation of working with enthusiastic self-motivating people.

Researchers from traditionally underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply: we want to hear from you!

The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged traditional views of work environments and how teams collaborate. Please do not hesitate to apply because of your current or desired geographic location. We have flexibility to consider applicants from across the USA and in exceptional cases beyond.
