The Weihl lab at Washington University School of Medicine is hiring a biocurator/coordinator position focused on Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy (LGMD) genes. This position would interface with ClinGen, Dr. Conrad Weihl, the chair of the curation expert panel, and other biocurators and experts to resolve genetic variants in LGMD genes. Our group is the genetics lead for an international LGMD consortium focused on improving LGMD diagnostics within the academic community.
The position would be full time remote or at Washington University with flexible hours (curation is done via an online interface and meetings are all conducted via zoom). The ideal candidate would have a background in genetics/biology, be eager to learn, organized, good communication skills, and the ability to work from home. The candidate would be trained in the process of biocuration so previous experience in “gene curation” is not essential but a background in understanding human genetics, rare diseases and ability to work with patient charts and the medical literature are essential.
Ideal position for a candidate interested in clinical research, a stepping stone to graduate or medical school, PhD scientist/geneticist/genetic counselor interested in the flexibility of working remotely.
Interested candidates can reach out to Dr. Weihl (email@example.com) with the subject “biocurator.”
