Seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to take a leadership role in one (or both) of two NIH-funded studies involving polygenic risk scores and other statistical/ computational genomics approaches. One grant focuses on cognitive genomics and its relationship to psychopathology. The other grant examines polygenic embryo screening. Additional opportunities to collaborate on several inter-related projects as part of the Ashkenazi Genome Consortium, as well as schizophrenia-related projects (including pharmacogenetics and cognitive/imaging genetics) as part of the Zucker Hillside Hospital schizophrenia research program.
Position will be funded for 2-4 years with competitive salary and benefits, commensurate with experience. Postdoctoral fellows at the Zucker Hillside Hospital are mentored to develop into independent investigators; our department has a strong track record in obtaining competitive funding for our fellows and junior investigators, including NIH K awards and Brain & Behavior Research Foundation (NARSAD) Young Investigator Awards.
Minimum Qualifications: PhD in a discipline relevant to statistical genetics
To apply, please send a cover letter, CV and contact information for 3 references to Todd Lencz, Ph.D. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
