Post-doctoral researcher in Bioinformatics/Computational Biology to study Genomics of Psychiatric Disorders
The Mood Disorders Center, an interdisciplinary research group within the Department of Psychiatry and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, seeks a post-doctoral researcher with biostatistical, bioinformatics and/or systems biology expertise to work with next-generation sequencing data and downstream analyses. We are currently involved in a number of large-scale next-generation sequencing projects of Major Depressive Disorder and Bipolar Disorder, utilizing a wide variety of molecular approaches, including whole genome sequencing, methylation arrays and RNA sequencing.
The successful candidate will be funded under a NIMH T32 grant supporting postdoctoral research (MH014592) and will work with a well-funded multidisciplinary research group consisting of geneticists, bioinformaticians, and clinical scientists focused on studying the etiology of severe mood disorders. We are seeking talented, self-driven individuals who are interested in applying molecular "omics" technology to the study of severe mood disorders. The duration of the post-doc will be at least 2 years, with an option to extent for an additional year. Since this is a federally funded position, successfully applications are required to be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
