  • a PhD in a quantitative / computational field and experience with biological data
  • a PhD in the biological sciences and a strong quantitative background

The focus of the lab is using computation (machine learning, data science, etc.) to quantify and understand biological systems related to human health and disease. Ongoing projects range from transcriptome analysis of circadian rhythms to finding interactions between medications and laboratory tests in electronic health records.

The lab has a rich set of collaborators, including experimental biologists, clinical researchers, and statisticians. The lab is part of the Department of Biomedical Informatics, the Department of Biological Sciences, and the Vanderbilt Center for Precision Medicine.
