POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW

Job Description

This position is for a postdoctoral fellow in the Laboratory of Brain and Data Sciences (LBDS). Our lab does cutting edge human subject neuroscience research to understand the basis of mental illness. We lead some of the largest studies in the field and generate and analyze unique large-scale multiomic datasets that uniquely position us to address fundamental questions about the human brain. These studies include the Living Brain Project, a data-driven investigation of the living human brain wherein we have collected brain biopsies, blood and skin samples from several hundred patients. We pair multiomics data from these specimens with deep phenotyping, neuroimaging and other levels of data in using multiscale network modeling to identify relationships across data types that are otherwise missed. We play lead roles in several large consortia, such as the Psychiatric Genomics Consortium where our lab is leading the largest rare variant sequencing effort in the field of schizophrenia genetics. We study a range of neuropsychiatric diseases with a strong focus on psychotic and cognitive disorders. We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow with strong computational background looking to gain expertise in utilizing complex multiomic network models to gain fundamental insights into human brain function. The PI of the LBDS is Alexander Charney, MD, PhD. Dr. Charney trained under Pamela Sklar and Eric Schadt, two of the world’s foremost leaders in the multiscale biology, genomics and psychiatry. He is passionate about mentorship. We are a part of the Pamela Sklar Division of Psychiatric Genomics at Mount Sinai, based in the New York City. We would love to have you join our fun, close-knit team for this next phase of your career.
