    Opportunity: Postdoctoral Fellow -- Genomics -- Bioinformatics @ UC San Diego -- La Jolla, CA (US)
    Submitted by Jonathan Sebat; posted on Tuesday, May 28, 2013

    BACKGROUND

    A Postdoctoral Position is available in the Beyster Center for Genomics of Psychiatric Disease and the Institute for Genomic Medicine at UC San Diego (igm.ucsd.edu). Our laboratory is developing novel approaches for the identification of risk genes for neuropsychiatric disorders, and we are initiating a new studies focused on understanding the contribution of germline mutation to disease risk in Autism. We seek to understand the genetic basis of disease by Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) in families, and by integrating data on de novo mutation and inherited genetic variation, including copy number variants (CNVs), nucleotide substitutions and indels (sebatlab.ucsd.edu/research).

    Central to these studies is the development of new bioinformatics approaches to the analysis of large genomic datasets. Some important computational challenges include the design of statistical techniques for testing the disease association of rare variants in genes and biological networks and the design of methods for integrating genomic and clinical data.

    REQUIREMENTS

    We are seeking a talented and highly motivated computational scientist with an interest in developing and applying new bioinformatics approaches to large scale genetic studies. Excellent bioinformatic and programming skills, a background in genomics and a strong publication record are required.

    HOW TO APPLY

    Applicants should send a CV and a list of three references by email to jsebat[at]ucsd.edu or by mail to:

    Jonathan Sebat, Ph. D.
