Postdoctoral Research Position in Statistical Genomics


Description:

Postdoctoral Research Fellow position in statistical genomics is available at Harvard School of Public Health. This position involves developing and applying statistical and computational methods for analysis of high-throughput genomic and epigenetic data in population-based and clinical studies, especially sequencing association studies, genes and environment, genome-wide association studies and epigenetic association studies. We seek an individual with strong statistical, computing and genetic backgrounds and who has expertise in some subset of high-dimensional data analysis, statistical genomics, genome-wide analysis, gene-environment interactions, and epigenetics. The work will involve both methodological research with department faculty and collaboration with subject matter researchers.

Qualifications:

Ph.D. in a quantitative field, e.g., statistics or biostatistics, computer sciences, strong quantitative research background, statistical and programming proficiency, strong genetic knowledge, as well as good written and oral communication skills.
