A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Adam Auton, in the Department of Genetics at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, USA (http://autonlab.einstein.yu.edu/). Research goals of the lab are to use statistical methods in conjunction with high-throughput DNA sequencing to understand patterns of genetic diversity, and to quantify how these patterns vary across individuals. We are interested in a variety of problems, including investigation of the influence of mutation, recombination, and natural selection. Much of our current work is focused on humans and other mammals, but we are potentially interested in other organisms.
We welcome candidates with a demonstrated interest in genetics and evolution, with a background in Population and Statistical Genetics, Bioinformatics, Computer Science, or related disciplines. Strong programming skills are essential. Experience with high-throughput sequencing data and/or experimental techniques would be an advantage. Salary will be based on the NIH scale. Please email a CV including list of publications and names of two references to firstname.lastname@example.org. Informal inquiries are also welcome.
The Albert Einstein College of Medicine is a leading medical research institution located in a residential area of the Bronx, NY, and is a short commute from Manhattan.
