Postdoctoral Associate in statistical or genetic epidemiological aspects of Alzheimer disease

The John P. Hussman Institute for Human Genomics at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine is seeking a Postdoctoral Associate to work on the statistical and genetic epidemiological aspects of Alzheimer Disease (AD), as part of a multidisciplinary AD research team, led by Dr. Margaret Pericak-Vance. This team of investigators is comprised of molecular geneticists, neurologists, bioinformaticians, and statistical and genetic epidemiologists who work together on studies related to AD. The qualified candidate will be working on research directed towards identifying environmental factors, genes and the mechanisms that they influence to increase the risk and outcomes associated with AD. Also the candidate will gain experience with next generation sequencing (NGS) data analysis. This project offers a unique opportunity to participate in the Alzheimer’s Disease Genetics Consortium (ADGC).

Minimum requirements are as follows: Ph.D. Experience in statistical genetics, statistics, genetic epidemiology, or bioinformatics preferred.
