The School of Public Health – Genomics, is seeking highly motivated researchers in Human Genetics, Genetic Epidemiology, Statistical Genetics, Population Genetics and/or Bioinformatics to perform large-scale genomic data analyses.
Monash plays a prominent role in public health in Australia and has recently established a program to integrate genomics into two of Australia's largest clinical trials (ASPREE and STAREE). These are primary prevention trials of healthy ageing in >19,000 and >10,000 participants involving medical data collection and deep phenotyping of lifestyle, mood, cognition, neuroimaging and physical function data.
Key aspects of the role include integrating genomic data into Australia's largest clinical trials, work in a diverse team of national and international collaborators, biostatisticians and clinicians, turning large genomic datasets into meaningful epidemiological and clinical research outcomes and conducting unique research into the genetics of healthy ageing, disease resilience, genetic predictors of disease (dementia, cancer, cardiovascular disease etc) and pharmacogenomics.
