The University of Chicago's Department of Medicine, Section of Genetic Medicine, invites applications at the Assistant Professor rank for a scholar whose research focuses on the development and application of statistical methods to the analysis of human genetic data on complex diseases. Areas of interest include analysis of large sequencing datasets, GWAS studies, RNA-sequencing and large-scale prediction and integration of multiple genomics data types. The department has broad research interests and existing strengths in the genetics of quantitative traits and common diseases, statistical and population genetics, bioinformatics and genomics. This position requires an individual with high-level expertise to be involved in all aspects of the design, development, implementation, and analysis of research projects focused on characterizing the genetic component to common diseases and human complex traits, and a rigorous program of independent research, multidisciplinary collaboration, and mentoring. The successful candidate will be expected to apply for external support for research, to participate in teaching and join appropriate graduate programs, and to participate in collaborative research opportunities.
