Current Openings

The Lu Laboratory aims to offer high-quality training to postdocs, graduate and undergraduate students, at the same time, keep in mind of work-life balance. Our recent Ph.D. graduates, Lirong Tan is a winner of Parkinson's Foundation fellowship, and Ye Chen is a best paper award finalist in two conferences. Both of them received industry job offers well before their graduations. Among our current students, Sheng Ren is a winner of Maita Levine Fellowhip. We welcome talented and highly motivated candidates to join our research team. Please send your application and required information (see below) to Dr. Lu by email.

Postdoctoral Fellows

Highly motivated recent PhDs in Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, Computer Science, Computational biology, Mathematics or a related field are encouraged to apply. The candidates are expected to have proficient programming skills, ability to conduct statistical reasoning, a strong track record of publication, and good communication and presentation skills. Prior experience with machine learning is a must. The candidates should have the ability to conduct independent productive research with minimal supervision. Candidates with profound knowledge in genomics or proteomics, or understanding of disease mechanisms will be given priority.

Required application materials: CV with a list of publication; a two-page description of your past achievements and future research goals; contact information of three references.

Graduate Research Assistants

Highly motivated graduate students in the departments of Computer Science, Epigenetics and Biostatistics, Mathematics, Electrical Engineering or a related field are encouraged to apply. Previous research experience is desirable but not required. Candidates with knowledge in Bioinformatics or with proficient programming skills will be given priority. Candidates must have a strong desire to acquire knowledge during graduate study.

Required application materials: CV; undergraduate and graduate transcripts; a cover letter that highlights your relevant experience and skills; contact information of three references.

Undergraduate Students

Highly motivated undergraduate students eager to learn Bioinformatics or gain research experience are encouraged to contact Dr. Lu.
