    Opportunity: Postdoctoral Researcher in Bioinformatics and Autism Biomarker Discovery @ UC San Diego -- La Jolla, CA (US)
    Submitted by Karen Pierce; posted on Friday, May 07, 2021

    BACKGROUND

    The University of California, San Diego (UCSD) Autism Center of Excellence (ACE) is an NIH funded research Center with a mission to discover early bio-behavioral diagnostic and prognostic markers of autism. Part of the Department of Neurosciences, the Center conducts multidisciplinary research spanning eye tracking, clinical phenotype, genetics, brain imaging and stem cell. Currently, the mean age of diagnosis of autism in the US is around age 4 years, yet research shows that the disorder begins prenatally. This large time gap between the disorder's onset and eventual treatment can interfere with positive outcomes. Unusual attention patterns as indexed by eye tracking has been shown to be robust early marker of autism and one key mission of our Center is to combine multiple eye tracking tests alongside other data modalities such as genetics and brain imaging to discover reliable and valid early markers of ASD.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    We are looking for a full-time post doctoral scholar to assist in the development of innovative eye tracking paradigms and to analyze data using modern bioinformatics approaches generated from multi-modal studies at the UCSD ACE with a particular emphasis on biomarker discovery.

    REQUIREMENTS

    Applicants should have programming experience in R/R Studio, MATLAB plus other standard environments such as Python and a track record in data visualization, bioinformatics, and biostatistics. Sophisticated ability to perform classification and cluster analyses are essential. Knowledge relating to autism, eye tracking, imaging, genetics and computer vision is a plus.

    PREFERENCES

    Easy to work with individual interested in public health issues and assisting with translational research designed for public good.

    TERMS

    Funding is available for up to a 4-year period pending performance. There is also opportunity to transition to a project scientist, or other faculty appointment at UCSD pending performance.

    LOCATION

    The position is funded through the Department of Neurosciences at the University of California, San Diego

    COMPENSATION

    $75,000-$95,000 annual salary + full benefits depending on experience.
