Opportunity: PostDoc @ Vanderbilt University--Nashville, TN (US)
Submitted by David Sexton; posted on Saturday, June 06, 2009
BACKGROUND:
The Program in Computational Genomics in the Center for Human Genetics Research (CHGR) at Vanderbilt University has an immediate opening for a post-doctoral fellow to pursue new and exciting research in human genetics. The CHGR is an interdisciplinary center with over 40 faculty representing numerous clinical and basic science departments. It has a highly interactive research program organized into three thematic programs: Disease Gene Discovery, Computational Genomics, and Translational Genetics. The CHGR has substantial core facilities for family and patient ascertainment; DNA banking, genotyping, and sequencing; and computational genomics, data management, and data analysis. It occupies over 14,000 sf of newly appointed wet and dry lab space. The CHGR faculty and staff enjoy the substantial benefits of the collaborative Vanderbilt atmosphere. More information about the specific CHGR post-doctoral positions can be found at: [link].

RESPONSIBILITIES:
The successful candidate will work as part of an established research team and will have access to several large genome-wide association study (GWAS) datasets and numerous follow-up studies for association and copy number variation. Using both established and evolving methods to detect and characterize single and multi-locus effects will be applied, and rich phenotypic data will permit analysis of discrete and quantitative traits. The candidate will integrate data from linkage, association, CNV, and re-sequencing studies along with knowledge of gene networks to identify susceptibility genes. He/She will also have the opportunity to conduct research in methods development in the study of gene-gene and gene-environment interactions for complex disease. In addition, the candidate will have the opportunity to interact with numerous senior investigators in multiple fields.

REQUIREMENTS:
The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. degree (or equivalent) in genetics, human genetics, epidemiology, computational biology, bioinformatics, biostatistics, or related field.
