Postdoctoral Associate in statistical, population genetic aspects and/or microbiome analysis of inflammatory bowel disease

Organization: 
University of Miami Miller School of Medicine
Job Location: 
Miami, FL
Benefits: 

We offer competitive post-doctoral salaries and benefits.

Job Description: 

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, population genetic aspects, and/or microbiome analysis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), as part of a multidisciplinary IBD research team, led by Drs. Maria Abreu and Jacob McCauley. This team of investigators is comprised of molecular geneticists, gastroenterologists, bioinformaticians, and statistical and genetic epidemiologists who work together on studies related to IBD. 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 IBD. This project offers a unique opportunity to participate in microbiome analysis of a biobank of biospecimen samples collected from IBD patients.

Requirements: 

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

Contact Information: 

Qualified candidates are encouraged to email Curriculum Vitae and list of three references to hihginfo@med.miami.edu with “IBD postdoctoral position” in the subject line.

About Our Organization: 

The John P. Hussman Institute for Human Genomics at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine is dedicated to using the very latest in cutting-edge technologies to identify genes involved in human diseases for the diagnosis, intervention and prevention of illness. Our work ranges broadly across many scientific disciplines and involves close collaboration with the global community of scientists and medical professionals, as well as the community at large.

Our scientists are among the first generation of researchers realizing the potential of the Human Genome Project, the working genetic “map” of human DNA that was completed in 2003. They are leaders in the application of clinical, molecular, and mathematical techniques to identify genes leading to human disease.

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