Harari Lab at the Neurogenetics and Informatics (NGI) Washington
The Harari Lab at the Neurogenetics and Informatics (NGI) Center is
offering Postdoctoral Research Associate positions in the Department of
Psychiatry at Washington University in St. Louis. We generate and
analyze high-throughput multi-omic data to study neurodegeneration and
diseases of the central nervous system with emphasis on Alzheimer’s
disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other dementias. Our ultimate goal of
the NGI is to understand the biology of these diseases, to define novel
biomarkers, and to identify novel therapeutical targets. Washington
University School of Medicine is renowned for its research cohorts of
neurodegenerative disorders, which include clinical, neuroimaging, and
fluid biomarker phenotypes.

Required Qualifications

Hold, or
shortly expects to obtain, a Ph.D. qualification in genetics,
bioinformatics, computer science, data science, statistical genomics, or
a related discipline involving the interrogation of ‘omics’ datasets.  Hands-on experience with large-scale human genomic or other omics (preferably related to neurodegeneration) studies.
Solid skills in at least one programming language (R, python or perl)
and experience working in Linux and/or high-performance cluster
environments. Strong ability to perform analytical reasoning to extract biological insights from data-driven approaches will be critical.
