Joining a storied tradition of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) research at Mount Sinai in New York City, this position will be charged with leading innovative computational research in a multi-disciplinary environment involving technology development, immunogenomics, and/or population diversity. Access to a highly collaborative environment, rich set of data products, with dual training in both IBD biology (Dr. Judy Cho) and statistical/computational rigor (Dr. Guo-Cheng Yuan). Key questions to be addressed include classification of pathophysiologic subsets (both within IBD and across chronic inflammatory diseases) and multi-omic integration (single cell multi-omics, spatial gene expression). Substantial mentorship across disciplines and work-life balance in a supportive environment will be provided. A successful candidate will have strengths in data management, single cell analyses, comprehensive statistics and/or complex genetics and a demonstrated track record of scientific initiative, curiosity, and rigor.
