Job Description

Postdoctoral Fellow – Statistical Genetics – Genomics – Bioinformatics - Computational Genomics

 

The Pinto Lab at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is seeking talented and highly motivated computational genomics scientists to undertake a NIH-funded research project in the field of genetics and genomics of Autism and Epilepsy, including SNV/indel/CNV discovery from exome/whole-genome sequencing data in families, profiling of noncoding regulatory RNA, and integration with short and long-read RNA sequencing data. Candidates with a quantitative background and demonstrated experience with genomic data analysis are encouraged to apply.

 

The successful applicant will have opportunities to collaborate with a diverse group of experimental and computational biologists within the Psychiatric Genomics Division, the Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology and the Seaver Autism Center. S/he will also play an active role in using the latest technologies to disentangle the genetic basis of neurodevelomental disorders and their comorbidities.

 

Requirements:

High degree of independence, fast-learner, highly motivated, enthusiastic and with a strong work ethic.

 

·       Ph.D. or equivalent doctorate in a quantitative field such as statistical genetics, genome informatics, bioinformatics, or computational biology.

·       Excellent bioinformatic and programming skills (e.g. Perl, Python or C/C++), and statistical computing (e.g. R).

·       Track record of scientific productivity and/or leadership.

·       Research background in genomics is required.

 

How to apply

To apply, please e-mail a cover letter, CV, and a brief description of research experience and interests, along with contact information for 2-3 references to Dalila Pinto (dalila.pinto@mssm.edu).
