Postdoctoral position in systems biology and NGS informatics – Forrest lab, Western Australia

The Systems Biology and Genomics Lab (SBGL) headed by Professor Alistair Forrest, is a new lab at the newly built, Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, focused on mammalian systems biology. We are working on applying systems biology approaches to understand mammalian systems and how they break down in disease (cancer and genetic disorders). In particular we work on transcriptional regulatory networks and have pioneered methods for examining cell-to-cell communication networks.


We are seeking a PhD or equivalent in bioinformatics, computer science, biostatistics, molecular biology or a related field with an emphasis in the specific fields of bioinformatics, genomics and systems biology.


Professor Forrest has a strong track record in transcriptomics and is the scientific coordinator of the FANTOM5 project based at Yokohama Japan. This project involved a consortium of over 260 members from 20 countries and has resulted in landmark publications in Nature and Science, on Promoters, Enhancers and transcriptional dynamics as well as a set of more than 40 satellite papers over the past 2 years.
