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.

We also have an opportunity for a postdoctoral fellow interested in a computational project on the functional effects of coding variants. Generally, postdoctoral 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.

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 phenotypes. Please see the job posting for more information.
