UAB Department of Biostatistics POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN STATISTICAL GENETICS/STATISTICAL GENOMICS


The Department of Biostatistics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham is accepting applications for a postdoctoral position in statistical genetics/genomics from people with strong backgrounds in statistics, mathematics, computations or other relevant quantitative skills who have a willingness to learn to apply these techniques to genetic/genomic studies. This is an excellent opportunity to expand one's career into one of the most rapidly progressing and in-demand areas of scientific research. The postdoctoral position offers opportunities for advanced training and collaboration in the analysis of epigenetics/epigenomics, RNA-Seq, metabolomics, whole-genome sequencing, and microbiome.

The successful candidate will train with outstanding senior statistical geneticists with a track record in helping to develop academic, government, and industry careers in statistical genetics and genetic epidemiology. Criteria for selection include: a demonstrated research ability in statistics or a relevant scientific discipline, interest and (to a lesser degree) experience in project areas, strength in computation, proficiency in verbal and written communication, and a genuine commitment to methodological and cross-disciplinary research in quantitative genetics.

Starting dates are open and flexible. Appointments will be for two years, with the possibility of an extension for another year depending on productivity. Salary is commensurate with qualifications, but in all cases equals or exceeds the minimum NIH post-doctoral stipend.
