Postdoctoral Fellow

Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island / Brown University
Job Location: 
Providence, RI
Job Description: 

The candidate will have the opportunity to integrate high dimension data sets of clinical genomics data and electronic medical records. Significant opportunities exist in statistical analysis of genomic sequencing data, development of advanced genome models, machine learning, integration of diverse genomic data types, identification of complex genotype-phenotype associations, and mining of electronic health records. We are carrying out a hybrid resequencing program on complex families with reproductive disorders. We have used semantic data mining and natural language processing to build databases which contain aggregated candidate genes and variants from literature, large data sets and pathway (Uzun et al, Database, 2012; Uzun et al, Genomics, 2013 ). We seek postdoctoral candidates with experience in variant analysis from deep sequencing data, database management and statistical genetics.


Strong knowledge in programming languages and database management (PERL, MySQL, PHP) are required as well as proficiency in statistical programs such as R and/or SAS. Candidate should know enough about high-performance computing to write efficient code in any languages mentioned above. Candidate should also be familiar with IGV, UCSC Genome Browser, GATK, GenePattern programs. Knowledge of graph theory and network analysis is also valuable.
