Post-Doctoral Fellow Applications

Postdoctoral Associate in Statistical or Genetic Epidemiological Aspects of Alzheimer’s 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’s Disease (AD), as part of a multidisciplinary AD research team, led by Drs. Margaret Pericak-Vance, Eden Martin and Gary Beecham. 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 work on research directed towards identifying genes and the mechanisms that they influence to increase the risk and outcomes associated with AD. The candidate will gain experience with next generation sequencing (NGS) data analysis in families and unrelated individuals from multi-ethnic populations. This project offers a unique opportunity to participate in both the Alzheimer’s Disease Genetics Consortium (ADGC) and the Alzheimer’s Disease Sequencing Project (ADSP).

Minimum requirements are as follows: Ph.D or M.D., and experience in statistical genetics, statistics, epidemiology, bioinformatics or a related discipline. The ability to work as part of an interdisciplinary team is expected. Any appropriate combination of education, certifications, and/or relevant work experience may be considered.

The University of Miami is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.

Qualified candidates are encouraged to email a cover letter, Curriculum Vitae and list of three references to Drs. Eden Martin and Margaret Pericak-Vance (hihginfo@med.miami.edu) with “AD postdoctoral position” in the subject line.
