An NIH R01-supported postdoctoral fellow position in bioinformatics is available within the Kruer laboratory of the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Research Institute and University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix. Work in the lab focuses on neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders of childhood, spanning both common and rare diseases. Successful candidates will have strong programming and analytical skills. The fellow will take ownership of projects integrating genomic (WES and WGS) and transcriptomic datasets across eukaryotic systems working collaboratively with bench scientists (molecular & cellular biologists, geneticists, neuroscientists) and physicians within the lab to characterize fundamental disease mechanisms. Opportunities in phenomics, metabolomics, algorithm development, and single cell analysis exist. Early career scientists will receive mentoring in proposal development, grantwriting, peer review and scientific communication to complement their professional development and prepare for positions in academia and industry. The successful applicant will have opportunities to work both independently and as part of large collaborative teams across major research networks and to publish high-impact manuscripts.
