Position: Postdoctoral Fellow - Computational Genetics and Genomics
Institution: Brigham and Women's Hospital
Location: Boston, Massachusetts, United States
Duties: We are looking for an enthusiastic and energetic individual to join our collaborative research effort, focusing on regulatory genomics and human disease genetics. We are principally interested in understanding how genetics contributes to complex traits, particularly Cardiovascular Genomics and heart disease. Projects include analysis of sequencing data, genomics data, biobank data, and GWAS data. Additionally, we are interested in performing transcriptional network and pathway analysis and detection of disease susceptibility genes/networks. The position offers a stimulating and multi-disciplinary environment and the opportunity to work with researchers at Harvard Medical School, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, the Program in Medical and Population Genetics of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, and the Center for Genetic Medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine
Requirements: A Ph.D. in a quantitative discipline such as statistical genetics, computational biology, bioinformatics, computer science, and preferably less than 3 years out from their PhD; Proficiency with statistical methods, databases, and programming in a modern programing language (e.g. Python, Perl, Java), with knowledge of R; Experience with biological networks and pathways analysis software; Excellent written and oral communication skills; Strong scientific writing skills with first-author publication track-record
