Genetic Testing Lab in Branford, Connecticut: click here for a list of open positions


Position: Postdoctoral Fellow and/or Staff Scientist- Dr. Carmen Argmann - Systems Biology  

Description:  We are currently accepting applications for motivated Post-doctoral fellows and Staff Scientists who have combined knowledge of disease biology and some computational biology to join our Multi-scale biological data mining group. This is the prime position to help facilitate the transition of Big Data into new biological paradigms with direct applications to understanding complex diseases as well as inborn errors of metabolism and translate these findings into clinical applications. Close collaboration with wet biologists and clinicians to test and validate those novel biological insights is then critical. In this position, the opportunity to impact human biology and health are limited only by your imagination. Please click here to view our website for further inspiration. 

Requirements: Candidates should have a Ph.D. in biology, genetics, computer science, statistics, bioinformatics, computational biology, or a related field with key knowledge of biology. Knowledge or experience in complex genetic traits and network biology are a plus. The ideal candidate for this position will have substantial input to the specific nature of their research project. However, the project should broadly fit within the group's goals of bringing novel biological insight to Big Data and thereby playing a role in shaping and understanding complex health traits.
