An NIH funded postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Michael Gandal, MD PhD, which has recently relocated to the Departments of Psychiatry and Genetics at the University of Pennsylvania and the Lifespan Brain Institute at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The position is focused on the development and implementation of integrative genomic approaches to identify the target genes and biological effects of noncoding genetic variants conferring risk for neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders, such as autism, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder. This work will leverage and extend several in-house large-scale brain genomics reference panels with integrated genotype and RNA-sequencing data from developing (n=700) and adult human brain samples (n>2000), generated as part of the PsychENCODE Consortium (http://resource.psychencode.org/).
The successful candidate will collaborate closely within a multidisciplinary team environment within the lab and will serve as a a mentor for undergraduate and graduate students . The fellow will have opportunities for leading projects as part of our international collaborations. Most significantly, the candidate should be a good fit for the Gandal Lab culture, which values collaboration, inclusivity, curiosity, and scientific rigor.
Qualifications: Applicants should hold a PhD in a computational or biological discipline, with a record of productivity. The applicant should possess strong computational skills with demonstrated proficiency in one programming language ( R , python, C++/Java). The application should have English language proficiency and strong organizational and communication skills.
Interested applications should submit a statement of interest, CV, and 3 references to Dr. Gandal
