Research Associate Scholar or a Post-doc’s position is immediately available in an NIH-funded study for identifying genetic and epigenetic factors associated with complex chronic diseases. Work involves high throughput genome-wide genotyping, gene expression, and sequencing data generation and analyses to elucidate genetic and epigenetic signature tags related to disease susceptibility. Qualifications with Ph.D. or Master’s degree in Statistics, Biostatistics, Genetics, Biology, Biochemistry, or related discipline and first author publications in scientific journals are required. Candidates with expertise or familiarity with statistical methodologies, computational genetics, and bioinformatics are particularly encouraged to apply. Those with expertise in molecular biology or functional studies, including transfection, cloning, reporter constructs, immuno-blotting, and cell culturing with high-quality publications, would also be considered. Highly motivated individuals with an intense interest in science and enthusiasm to understand the genetic complexities of metabolic diseases will be preferred. The position requires performing various duties, including high-throughput sample preparation, SNP genotyping, microarray data analysis, and manuscript preparation while paying strict attention to details and using complex equipment and computer terminals. The laboratory is highly collaborative, supports creative ideas, and offers opportunities to build an independent career in Genomic Medicine. Starting salary will be commensurate with training and experience. The deadline for application submission is May 20, 2022.
