We welcome motivated researchers to join us to explore exciting genome sciences together.

We are part of the Singapore National Precision Medicine Program and the Centre for Big Data and Integrative Genomics (c-BIG). Multiple positions are available for research scientists, postdocs, software engineers, and data analysts. Successful applicants will have the opportunities to collaborate with scientists and clinicians across the nation and work on whole genome sequencing data of >10,000 Singaporeans for population genetics questions and various disease phenotypes, including Electronic Medical Records.

Trainees in the lab will receive quality mentorship and training to help achieve their professional goals. In addition to the assigned projects, we also encourage trainees to propose their own ideas under the research theme of the lab, especially novel methodology research.

Competitive salary and benefit package will be provided to successful applicants based on experience.
