Current lines of work include high-throughput determination of binding sites and binding specificities of human transcription factors, and using this information to identify regulatory elements that control cell growth during normal development and in cancer (see, for example Hallikas et al., Cell 124:47-59, 2006; Sur et al., Science 338:1360-1363, 2012; Jolma et al., Cell 152:327-339, 2013; Jolma et al., Nature 527:384-388, 2015; Yin et al., Science 356:eaaj2239, 2017; Zhu et al., Nature 562:76-81, 2018; Yan et al., Nature 591:147-151, 2021; Sahu et al., Nature Genetics 54:283¿294, 2022). The lab is also very well equipped with its own sequencers, 10x Genomics controller and robots for high-throughput work.

The work profile is a combination of wet-lab and dry-lab tasks. For Senior Research Associate, the work profile will involve administrative tasks, supervision of day-to-day activities of the research lab, including supervision of graduate and PhD students and lab managers. The candidate will support the PI with regard to tasks such as writing manuscripts and grant applications, reporting of grants and organizing courses and international meetings. Finally, the applicant will pursue an independent research project in the general area of gene expression and/or cancer. Candidates with experience or interest in machine learning, artificial intelligence and programming are encouraged to apply.

Applicants should have a PhD in computational biology, molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry or computational biology. Senior Research Associates should have several years of post-doctoral experience in the area.
