Justin B. Kinney

Assistant Professor, Simons Center for Quantitative Biology. (PhD. Princeton 2008)

My research combines theory, computation, and experiment in an effort to better understand quantitative sequence-function relationships in molecular biology. I am particularly interested in deciphering the biophysical mechanisms of transcriptional regulation using the quantitative modeling of data produced by Sort-Seq and other massively parallel assays. I also devote much of my effort to developing new methods in statistics and machine learning.

Job Opportunities

The Kinney Lab is looking to hire a talented and motivated Postdoctoral Fellow to participate in one of a variety of mathematical, computational, and experimental projects focused on using ultra-high-throughput DNA sequencing to measure and model quantitative sequence-function relationships. Applicants with PhD-level experience in physics, computer science, statistics, machine learning, molecular biology, and/or biochemistry are encouraged apply. Applicants should email Dr. Kinney directly at jkinney@cshl.edu.
