The Pinto Laboratory at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai applies a variety of advanced experimental and computational genomic approaches to identify risk factors and elucidate the mechanisms underlying pediatric neurodevelopmental disorders such as Autism and Epilepsy.
We are currently seeking a computational genomics postdoctoral fellow to undertake NIH-funded research projects in the field of genetics and genomics of Autism and Epilepsy, including CNV/SNV/indel discovery from exome/whole-genome sequencing data, profiling of noncoding regulatory RNA, and integration with short and long-read RNA sequencing data. Candidates with a quantitative background and demonstrated experience with genomic data analysis are encouraged to apply. The successful applicant will have opportunities to collaborate with a diverse group of experimental and computational biologists within the Psychiatric Genomics Division, the Seaver Autism Center, and the Institute for Genomics and Multiscale Biology. S/he will also play an active role in using the latest sequencing technologies to disentangle the genetic basis of neurodevelomental disorders and their comorbidities.
