Job Description: The de Koning Lab is seeking an ambitious and accomplished postdoctoral scholar to work in an exciting interdisciplinary research group, conducting innovative research in the general areas of computational biology, statistical modelling, and biological data science in evolutionary, population, and health genomics. The fellow will work on a funded project developing new systematic, probabilistic approaches to phenotype-centric variant prioritization in poorly characterized rare genetic disorders of humans. This project builds on a variety of recent advances our group has made in component areas of the project, and combines the development of population genetic theory and algorithms, statistical modelling, machine learning, and multi-scale data integration approaches. The project will build on existing collaborations with clinician scientists at the Alberta Children’s Hospital, and with national rare disease networks including Care For Rare (now C4R-Solve). While this position is supported by funds from GenomeCanada, NSERC, and other grants, excellent candidates will be encouraged to apply for prestigious national fellowships. The candidate will be joining a passionate group of computational scientists, with diverse backgrounds in computer science, bioinformatics, evolutionary biology, genetics, pure math, statistics, physics, medicine, and engineering. Due to the pandemic, the starting date and details are flexible. Qualifications: Candidates should have a Ph.D. or equivalent (completed in the last 3 years) in computer science, pure or applied mathematics, statistics, bioinformatics, or a related field. Experience in variant interpretation, computational genomics, Bayesian statistics, population genetics, and/or molecular evolution is an asset, but superior candidates with strong technical and problem-solving skills will be considered from any background. Application Details: Interested applicants may contact the principle investigator directly to express interest and submit a CV for consideration (jdekonin@ucalgary.ca).
