Job Description

Requisition Number 06374
Department Name: Integrative Structural and Computational Biology
Position Type: Full Time
Position Title Postdoctoral Associate - Computational Biology/Systems Genetics
Position Summary:

Dr. Mohammadi’s lab is looking for computational postdocs to join ongoing efforts in systems genetics and precision medicine projects. Possible projects include, but are not limited to, modeling variation in non-coding genome, identifying regulatory variations that contribute to disease, and combining genetic data with health monitoring sensor data.

Our research is at the interface of Bioinformatics, Statistics, and Computer Science. We develop mathematical frameworks and statistical models to address computational challenges of analyzing variation in genome and its effect on human health. We are participating in basic research, as part of large functional genomics consortia such as the GTEx, and are collaborating closely with medical doctors in clinic to ensure a translational impact.

Postdoctoral Associates are appointed positions for the purpose of developing scholarly competence, working under the supervision of a TSRI Faculty member. These appointments are normally not renewed beyond a total of six years. Postdoctoral Associates cannot apply for external funding either as a Principal Investigator or Co-Principal Investigator without prior approval from a Departmental Chair.
