The candidate will be working with Dr. Jingjing Yang (Ph.D., Assistant Professor, http://genetics.emory.edu/faculty/primary/yang-jingjing.html) in the Center for Computational and Quantitative Genetics, Department of Human Genetics, Emory University School of Medicine. The Yang Lab is looking for self-motivated and enthusiastic postdoctoral fellow to work on Statistical Genetics and Genomics. We mainly focus on method development and application of integrative analysis with multi-level OMICs data (e.g., DNA, RNA, microRNA, Methylation, Proteomics data), with the goal of understanding the underlying biological mechanisms of genetic associations with complex traits and diseases. We also work on association studies with functional phenotypes (i.e., trend curve, MRI images).
The candidate will have opportunities to collaborate with members of the Center for Computational and Quantitative Genetics, as well as people from other departments at Emory and VA.
Interested candidate should submit a Cover Letter, CV, Brief Statement of Research & Interest (less than 2 pages), one Sample Publication and Contacts for 3 references-Ph.D. in Statistics/Biostatistics, Bioinformatics, Computer Science or other relevant discipline with strong quantitative research background; proficiency in one or multiple of the popular programing languages, e.g., C++, Python, Perl, R; experience working with large genetics data and high-performance clusters are desirable.-76291BR
