The McCoy lab is part of the Department of Biology at Johns Hopkins University. JHU offers an exceptional environment for research and training in computational and statistical genomics—with strong interaction among genomics research groups across departments, academic divisions, and nearby institutions. Moreover, the JHU Department of Biology hosts cutting-edge research in molecular biology, cell biology, developmental biology, and biophysics, providing many opportunities for collaboration.
Please contact Rajiv to inquire about joining the lab! We are recruiting postdocs and graduate students interested in using computational and statistical approaches to study human genome evolution and function. See the Research page for specific research directions with which your interests may intersect. Informal inquiries are also welcome.
Postdoctoral fellows: Prospective postdocs should email Rajiv with a CV, description of past and future research interests, and contact information for three references. Please see our formal job advertisement here.
Graduate students: Prospective PhD students should apply to the CMDB graduate program. If you are currently or will soon be a student in this program, contact Rajiv to discuss potential rotation projects. Current master’s students should contact Rajiv with a CV and description of scientific interests.
Undergraduate students: Undergrads who are interested in research should email Rajiv with a description of academic interests, relevant coursework, and any past research or programming experience. Note that experience is not required of undergraduates, who will receive necessary training on the job. Motivation and scientific curiosity are the most important factors. Update: Undergraduate research positions are filled for the fall semester, but please check back in future semesters.
