Welcome to the Morgun and Shulzhenko Labs!

Although formally located in two colleges (Veterinary Medicine & Pharmacy), we are working as one group. The central theme  of our research is host microbiota interactions in health and disease.

News January 2019:

Post-Doctoral position in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology

The successful candidate will be executing research projects in Systems Bio/Medicine focused on the analysis of metagenomic, transcriptomic, and metabolomics data derived from the human samples and experimental animals. Analyses will broadly focus on systems-level studies using different modeling approaches including network analysis of interaction between drug, host and its microbiome, as well as discovery of biomarkers relevant to human disease including drug response in clinical trial on immunodeficiency.

Current emphasis of our group is on analysis of transkingdom networks from microbial metagenomics and host transcriptomics in cancer, immunodeficiency and diabetes using data from experimental models and human patients. More information and publications of the group can be found here

The candidate should be familiar with statistics and bioinformatics techniques for genomic data analysis and have to collaborate closely with members of experimental laboratories for validation of computational results. A Doctoral degree in Computer Science, Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, Biology, or a related field and ability to collaborate well are required. Proficiency in statistical programming and/or scripting languages appropriate for scalable data analysis (e.g., R, Perl, Python, etc.); familiarity with functional genetic and/or genomic data, as indicated by the publication record. Experience with biological databases and wet lab is a plus.
