-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 also 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 interest 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
  
-The Personal Genomics Consultation Service (PGCS) is also searching ​for a full time research scientist or computational biologist to help solve rare disease cases using computational genomics pipelines ​and bioinformatics tools, and to develop leading edge genetic algorithms that are essential to finding ​the genetic causes ​of rare phenotypesPlease see [[http://careers.brighamandwomens.org/​JobDescription.aspx?​Back=1&&​jobId=2262379|the job posting]] ​for more information.+

 +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.
