Applications are invited for the postdoctoral fellow position at the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute, Sinai Health System. The successful candidate will join the molecular and genomic epidemiology research group led by Dr. Rayjean Hung in the Prosserman Centre for Population Health Research (http://www.lunenfeld.ca/about-us/expertise) within the Sinai Health System.
The overall objectives of the research group led by Dr. Hung are to investigate etiology and prognosis of complex diseases in human population, focusing on genetic susceptibility, molecular profile, and integrative multi-omics analysis based on innovative statistical and computational methods. The goal is to contribute to the primary prevention, early detection and improved prognosis of complex diseases. These objectives will be achieved through national and international epidemiological collaborative studies, which integrate molecular genetics and statistical modeling in a multidisciplinary approach.
One postdoctoral fellowship is immediately available to join the group to work on etiology and developmental origins of complex diseases including wide range of topics such as multiple cancers and children’s neurodevelopment, through molecular profiling (such as genomics, epigenomics, virus infection), pathway analytics and risk prediction modeling approach as part of interdisciplinary research project with multiple collaborating institutes. The position will initially be for one year with the possibility of renewal up to three years in total. Fellowship stipend level will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
