The Jackson Laboratory – Dr. Greg Carter is seeking Postdoctoral candidates in computational genetics and systems biology to develop computational methods that derive biological models from large-scale genetic and genomics data. Successful candidates will join either the laboratory of Dr. Carter at the Farmington, CT campus of The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine (JAX-GM), or his lab at The Jackson Laboratory for Mammalian Genetics (JAX-MG) in Bar Harbor, ME.
The Carter labs work to develop novel computational approaches to the genetics of complex diseases, in the areas of autoimmune disease, cancer, and neurodegeneration, with a particular focus on Alzheimer’s disease. This involves combining statistical genetics concepts such as epistasis and pleiotropy to high-dimensional genomic, imaging, and physiological data, with an aim to understand how genetic and environmental factors combine to control disease-related processes in both animal and human phenotypes. This strategy is now being applied to accelerate the discovery of novel treatments for Alzheimer’s disease in collaboration with experts in genetic engineering, neuroscience, preclinical testing, and clinical neurology.
