Postdoctoral position available at Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research in the laboratory of Dr. Olivia Corradin. The Corradin lab investigates the role of noncoding DNA variants in defining human disease pathogenesis and susceptibility. Specifically we are interested in exploring how multiple DNA variants can cooperate in order to control target gene expression and clinical risk.
Projects opportunities involve functional studies of risk loci for which we have identified multiple functional variants and computational studies of the effect of 3-dimensional chromatin structure on predisposition to disease.
Dr. Corradin has recently started her lab and the Whitehead Institute. Exciting opportunity to play an integral role in a new/small lab while experiencing all the Whitehead and MIT has to offer http://wi.mit.edu/people/postdoctoral
