    Opportunity: Postdoc/Postgrad Positions in Psychiatric Genetics @ Yale University -- New Haven, CT (US)
    Submitted by Renato Polimanti; posted on Thursday, June 28, 2018


    Postdoc and postgrad positions open in the Division of Human Genetics at Yale Department of Psychiatry. The primary research focus will be to investigate the predisposition to psychiatric disorders and behavioral traits using genome-wide data. Postdoc applicants must have, or be about to be awarded, a Ph.D. and/or M.D degree, ideally with less than 2 years of postdoctoral experience. Expertise in one of the following areas is required: genetic epidemiology, bioinformatics, statistics, or related fields. Postgrad candidates should have a BA or BSc with a major in biological sciences and some experience with computational biology or statistics.

    The successful candidate will work with Dr. Renato Polimanti, Assistant Professor at the Yale University School of Medicine, on projects funded by the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, and the Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative. Further studies of substance use disorders will be carried out in collaboration with the group of Dr. Joel Gelernter via genome-wide investigations of a deeply-phenotyped cohort including more than 14,000 subjects. Additionally, there will be the possibility to be involved in collaborative studies on data from large GWAS consortia, including the Psychiatric Genomics Consortium, the Army Study to Assess Risk and Resilience in Servicemembers, and the Million Veteran Project.
