    Opportunity: Postdoctoral Research Scholar, Edson Foundation (ASU-Banner Neurodegenerative Disease Research Center) @ Arizona State University -- Tempe, AZ (US)
    Submitted by Elaina Thomas; posted on Saturday, December 28, 2019

    BACKGROUND

    We invite applications for one Edson Foundation Postdoctoral Research Scholar in the ASU-Banner Neurodegenerative Disease Research Center (NDRC) at Arizona State University. The goal of the Edson foundation is to fund research that will find new discoveries and solutions to better the quality of life for people affected by neurodegenerative diseases.

    As a prestigious Edson Postdoctoral Research Scholar, you will have a primary mentor in the NDRC, but will have the opportunity to collaborate with other investigators. The NDRC prides itself on producing high impactful research through collaborations. The selected candidate will work on projects utilizing highly dimensional genomic data, especially next-generation sequencing data for multilevel "omics" data analyses, with a focus on the identification of genes/drug targets implicated in neurodegenerative diseases, especially Alzheimer's disease.

    We will begin reviewing applications January 27, 2020 and will continue to review incoming applications on a biweekly basis until the position is filled.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    • Write and optimize computational pipelines (scripts) for whole genome/exome sequencing, RNA-seq, and/or microarray.
    • Organize, prepare and analyze data; develop hypotheses to be tested and ways of testing it.
    • Prepare and present the results of research, in scientific conferences and journals.
    • Assist with grant preparation and reporting.

    REQUIREMENTS

    Applicants must have a PhD by May 31st, 2020 in bioinformatics, genomics, computational biology, biostatistics, epidemiology or related field to be considered.

    PREFERENCES

    • Experience with Linux/Unix based systems, developing shell scripts/command-line interface, demonstrable experience in large-scale data analysis and utilization of high-performance computing systems
    • Formal training/experience in analyzing next generation sequencing (NGS) or microarray data for gene expression, genotyping or epigenetics
    • Experience with scientific computing and data visualization tools and scripting languages such as Python/Perl/R/Matlab, and understanding of intermediate level of statistics
    • Excellent communication skills
    • Experience in genomic data analysis of neurodegenerative diseases is desired but not required.

    The Biodesign institute is home to the ASU-Banner Neurodegenerative Disease Research Center (NDRC). This is a collaboration between ASU and Banner Health that was officially entered into in July 2015. The goal of NDRC is to develop a world-class research center that houses basic and translational researchers to address challenges in the etiology, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. We share a strong desire to collaborate in an effort to advance the scientific and clinical fight against Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases and to make meaningful contributions to the understanding and promotion of healthy aging, as well as establish an organization that unites clinical and basic research in an effort to bridge the gap between discovery and delivery of health care of affected populations. ASU serves as the basic research arm and Banner Health serves as the clinical research arm of the partnership.

    HOW TO APPLY

    Applicants are responsible for including a cover letter, CV, and the names of three professional references in the application through the Interfolio website (apply.interfolio.com/72796). Emailed applications will not be accepted.

    DEADLINE
