About TGen

TGen, the Translational Genomics Research Institute, is an affiliate of City of Hope. We are an Arizona-based, nonprofit medical research institute dedicated to conducting groundbreaking research with life-changing results. We work to unravel the genetic components of common and complex diseases, including cancer, neurological disorders, infectious disease, and rare childhood disorders. By identifying treatment options in this manner, we believe medicine becomes more rational, more precise and, well, more personal.

At TGen, we are setting a new medical standard where the future of medicine is happening now. We are pioneers in deciphering the story a person's genome has to tell. For individuals faced with a serious diagnosis, our scientists and clinicians have the ability to let a patients' genome reveal its uniqueness in ways that are both powerful and transformative, especially when it comes to treating disease in a precise and individual manner.

We are a human-centric organization that translates to our employees. Some of the perks in working for us:

· BC/BS of Arizona health coverage.

· Dental, Vision, Life, Short- and Long-term Disability

· Top-notch EAP with a full scope of concierge type services

Position Summary

In the Huentelman Lab, our team studies the genetic basis of neurological disease. We have projects that focus on children and adults with rare diseases, heritable and non-heritable influencers of childhood developmental trajectories, normal brain aging using a large internet-based cohort, Alzheimer's disease, and related dementias, and brain-related complications resulting from "long COVID". We make use of various types of genomics-based approaches including arrays, sequencing, single-cell analyses, and spatial-based molecular profiling. We publish frequently, we submit lots of grant applications, we go to scientific conferences together, we try to make a daily difference in our patient's lives… in short, there is ample opportunity to learn and train in our lab environment. We are milestone-driven. Every team member has an equal voice in experimental design and interpretation of results. We try our best to function as a family and even though our work is challenging we manage to have a fun time doing it.
