A postdoctoral training position is currently available in the Cancer Genetics and Comparative Genomics Branch (CGCGB) of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI). The position is located in the laboratory of Jim Mullikin, Ph.D., whose current research program capitalizes on the use of comparative genomics to answer important questions in human disease research. The laboratory participates in a wide variety of collaborative projects, performing genomic variation analysis, disease mutation discovery, RNA sequence analysis, and computer algorithm development using sequence data from the latest available technologies. The Mullikin Lab is co-located with the NIH Intramural Sequencing Center (NISC), so the successful applicant will have the opportunity to access data from the newest sequencing methods in a rapidly changing field. In addition, the laboratory has access to state-of-the-art, high-performance computing systems.
