Post-doctoral Fellowship in 'OMICs' and Big-Data Approaches to Alzheimer's Disease Pathogenesis
The Unit of Clinical and Translational Neuroscience in the Intramural Program of the National Institute on Aging (NIA) is seeking applicants for a post-doctoral research fellowship. Our current work has a major emphasis on understanding the metabolic basis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) pathogenesis using quantitative metabolomics of brain and blood tissue samples. We employ several computational methodologies (i.e. biostatistical, epidemiologic, computer science) on large longitudinal clinical, neuroimaging, cognitive, and metabolomics/proteomics datasets. We are also exploring in-silico approaches to drug repurposing in AD combining analyses of Electronic Health Record (EHR) data with large publicly available gene expression datasets. The ideal candidate will have excellent quantitative analytical skills with experience in analyses of 'OMICs' data. Candidates with an interest in bio-informatics approaches to analyses of 'OMICs' data and excellent writing skills are preferred.
