Subject: 21.07.25 postdoc in AI + OMICS + Drug Discovery
The Bin Chen Laboratory (http://binchenlab.org) uses big data and artificial intelligence to discover new or better therapeutic candidates. The lab has collected over 30,000 bulk RNA-Seq profiles and millions of single-cell RNA-Seq profiles and drug-induced gene expression profiles. The lab is now capable of screening drug candidates from millions of novel compounds for diseases based on gene expression. Our postdoctoral fellow will help refine the models and translate these data points into therapeutics. The lab works on the following diseases: liver cancer, DIPG, melanoma, Alzheimers, and COVID-19 and is open to study other conditions. In addition, the successful candidate is expected to lead or assist with any of the following projects: (1) developing deep learning and transfer learning algorithms to discover novel therapeutics and transfer knowledge between preclinical and clinical model, (2) developing interpretable machine learning methods to predict drug-induced gene expression profiles, and (3) developing deep reinforcement learning models in lead optimization. The candidate will closely work with computer scientists to develop models and bench scientists to validate drug hits. The candidate could be strong in either medicinal chemistry or bioinformatics. The candidates who are interested in exploring AlphaFold are more than welcome to apply. Recent Chen Lab work has been published in Gastroenterology, Nature Communications, Nature Protocols, Nature Reviews Gastroenterology and Hepatology, ICDM, and KDD and featured in STAT, GEN, GenomeWeb, and KCBS.
