James J. Cai - P.I.

Position: Assistant Professor
Academic Interests: Computational/evolutionary genomics

For details on some of our projects please visit the Research page of this web site. Publications: A number of publications have come from our lab. For a full listing, go to the Publications page.

Postdoctoral Fellows

Postdoctoral positions are available in computational research in population genomics and molecular evolution. Candidates should have obtained a PhD degree in Biology, Bioinformatics, Computer Science, or a related discipline. Programming skills (ideally in Matlab and C) and experience in the application of computational methods to high-throughput genomic data are highly desirable. The successful candidate will work on a variety of projects to develop statistical tests and computational tools to investigate evolutionary processes shaping genome variability patterns. You will also have the opportunity to pursue independent research related to major research themes of the lab.

Interested applicants should submit a CV, a brief (2-3 paragraphs) statement of her/his research interests and experience, and contact information of three references by email to

Undergraduate/Graduate Students

We have openings for motivated undergraduate and graduate students from various scientific disciplines (biology, medicine, computing science, statistics, engineering, etc) who wish to work at the interface of genomics, bioinformatics and medicine. For example, you will be guided to develop cutting-edge software for network analysis in systems biology. You will be using Tesla GPU computing technology to develop the software on the revolutionary, massively parallel CUDA architecture.
