Postdoctoral associate/programmer position in population genetics and human genetics/genomics.
The Human Genome Sequencing Center at the Baylor College of Medicine is searching for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to join our group. The focus of the position will be on utilizing a combination of bioinformatics and experimental approaches to study population genetics and human genetics based on the large-scale data sets produced from the next generation re-sequencing technologies. As the sequencing technologies have evolved quickly enough to survey large fractions of the genomic regions across large number of samples at a much affordable cost, there is a great scientific opportunity to have insightful understanding in various topics of human population genetics and disease etiologies based on deep re-sequencing data sets. This is paving the way for the promised personalized health care in the near future.
The successful candidate will have strong statistical genetics/population genetics training. A background in bioinformatics or computation is desired. In-depth understanding/experience in molecular experimental approaches is advantageous, however not required.
We encourage both independent thinking and close interactions with other members in a large teamwork setting.
PhD in quantitative fields including but not restricted to statistical genetics / population genetics / bioinformatics/software engineering.
Work experience with most of these: Unix, perl, ruby, C++.
