-We are currently looking for a postdoctoral fellow interested in identifying the roles of non-coding variants using whole genome sequencing of patients with rare Mendelian phenotypes. This position is in collaboration with Merck Research Labs. Interested candidates should contact Shamil with a CV and statement of research interests and background.  ​+=====Job Opportunities=====
  
-We have an opportunity ​for postdoctoral ​fellow interested in a computational project ​on the functional effects ​of coding variants. Generallypostdoctoral ​candidates ​with a strong background in computational biology, population genetics, protein structure or molecular evolution and interested in applications to human genetics are encouraged ​to contact ​Shamil.+Specific opportunities ​for postdoctoral ​fellows and staff scientists are posted ​on this page when available. Irrespectively ​of specific openingswe always encourage qualified ​candidates to contact ​us

 +We have an opening for a statistical geneticist interested both in theory/​method development ​and analysis of large-scale sequencing, genotyping ​and epigenomics datasetsPotential projects include the analysis of regulatory variation; unresolved issues of allelic architecture and phenotype prediction; development of new methods ​for the analysis of large-scale sequencing datasets. Experience in statistical genetics will be considered as significant plus, and an understanding of evolutionary and/or human genetics is also helpful. However, we will consider all applicants with a strong quantitative background willing ​to learn and work at the forefront ​of this rapidly expanding field

 +We have an opening for a human geneticist with an interest in method development for variant prediction in Mendelian disorders using large-scale sequencing, genotyping and epigenomics datasets. Potential projects include ​the estimation of penetrance ​for disease variants; integration of protein structural ​information ​and relevant domains in functional predictions;​ development of new methods for the analysis of large-scale case and control sequencing datasets. Experience in Mendelian human genetics will be considered as a significant plus, and an understanding of statistical genetics and sequencing is also helpful.
