Postdoctoral Researcher @ University of Maryland-College Park

Written By Naveen Kumar on Tuesday, 10 September 2013 | 01:35:00














Description
A Faculty Research Assistant position is available in a newly established
statistical/quantitative genetics group in the Department of Animal and
Avian Sciences at the University of Maryland, College Park
(http://ansc.umd.edu). Ultimately, the group seeks to understand the genetic
basis of complex traits and diseases, shaped by selection, mutation, and
genetic drift, using statistical and computational approaches. In
particular, the group focuses on developing statistical approaches and
computing tools for the identification of genetic variants for complex
traits and diseases in animals and humans. Detecting selective sweeps and
studying the population history of animals and humans using whole genome
sequence data will also be of interest.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in genetics, statistics, bioinformatics,
computational biology, computer science, or a related field. Knowledge of
statistical genetics, population genetics, complex trait mapping and/or
next-generation sequencing is a plus. Proficiency in programming in R and
one from Fortran, C/C++, and Java is highly desired. Preference will be
given to candidates with a strong publication record, evidence of
substantial research productivity, and ability to successfully communicate
scientific information.

Salary is highly competitive and commensurate with qualifications. Fringe
benefits are offered.

Applicants can ask for more information through email, lima@umd.edu, or
apply officially through eTerp at https://ejobs.umd.edu, with the position
number 119407. Candidates should upload CV and cover letter with a brief
description of previous research experience and contact information of
three professional references.
