There is an exciting immediate bioinformatician opening at the Itan Lab of Computational Human Genomics of the Icahn School of Medicine's Institute for Personalized Medicine. This is a unique opportunity to become a major player of the genomic revolution where computational discoveries directly benefit patients' treatment and drug discovery.
We aim to elucidate the genetics underlying human disease using computational methods, including deep learning, modeling and statistical genomics. The role will involve next generation sequencing analysis, aiding with research and development of novel methodologies to identify disease-causing genes and mutations in patients, working with collaborators, and maintaining the IT infrastructure of the lab.
The candidate should be highly motivated and talented, with strong programming and quantitative skills, and a genuine interest in human disease genomics and cutting edge computational methodologies.
