Open Positions

Join Dr. Wei Li's lab ( at Baylor College of Medicine located in the heart of Texas Medical Center, one of the most exciting places in the world for biomedical research!

Postdoctoral position in Bioinformatics/Computational Biology

We have an immediate opening for a highly self-motivated postdoctoral associate in the area of epigenetic and transcription regulation in cancer and neural disease. Ideal candidate should have 1) a Ph.D. in a quantitative field, 2) strong programming skills (python/perl, R, C/C++) and/or large-scale data analysis skills. Substantial experience in Bioinformatics/Computational Biology is a plus. However, a non-bioinformatics background with strong training in other area (e.g., physics or computer science) would also be appropriate. The successful candidate is expected to develop algorithms to interpret and integrate various genome-wide epigenome/transcriptome data for a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms of diseases. This position also offers access to an outstanding interdisciplinary research environment with plenty of collaboration opportunities.

This position is sponsored by the NIH Epigenomics RoadMap Initiative ( and Genome Data Analysis Centers for The Cancer Genome Atlas Research Network.

How to apply: Applicants should submit a CV, pdfs of your best papers and name/contact information of three references to Dr. Wei Li (WL1 at bcm dot edu) with email subject "Postdoctoral application".

Scientific Programmer position

Ideal candidates should have a Bachelor or Master degree in Computer Science or related field and strong programming skills such as python/perl, C/C++, SQL/CGI, Java, etc. Prior bioinformatics training/experience is a plus. The primary object is to implement web-based and/or stand-alone software tools that enable biomedical researchers to interpret their large-scale genomics/microarray data.

How to apply: Applicants should submit a CV and name/contact information of three references to Dr. Wei Li (WL1 at bcm dot tmc dot edu) with email subject "Scientific Programmer application".
