Summary: Postdoctoral Fellow Positions at University of Washington
Two postdoctoral fellow positions are available in the lab of Prof Su-In Lee in the Departments of
Computer Science & Engineering (CSE) and Genome Sciences (GS) at the University of Washington in
Seattle.
The Lee lab is interested in developing computational approaches based on machine learning and
statistics to address key problems in biology and medicine. Current research includes Systems
Medicine an emerging field that aims to infer and "reconstruct" biological networks underlying
complex disease processes by integrating various types of high-throughput biological data; and to
define clinically detectable molecular "fingerprints" resulting from the disease-perturbed biological
networks to detect and stratify various pathological conditions for personalized and predictive
healthcare. Specific research themes include:
- Functional genomics towards personalized health care predicting sensitivity to chemotherapy
drugs in cancer (Acute Myeloid Leukemia) treatment based on functional genomic data
- Systems biology of disease mechanisms (cancer, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease),
complex biological traits, evolution, development and tissue specificity
- Systems genetics -- system-level understanding of the effect of genetic/epigenetic variation on
complex biological traits
- Genomics meets genetics integrating functional genomic data to inform genome-wide
association studies (lung functions, dementia)
- Predictive medicine predicting the condition of critical patients in ICU based on time-series
