A fully funded postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Health Disparities Research Section of the Laboratory of Epidemiology and Population Sciences, at the National Institute on Aging (NIA) in Baltimore, MD (https://www.nia.nih.gov/research/labs/leps/health-disparities-research-section ). Research in the laboratory examines the biologic basis of age associated health disparities using a translational approach spanning from clinical research to the bench in a targeted epidemiologic study, The Healthy Aging in Neighborhoods of Diversity across the Life Span (HANDLS) study (https://handls.nih.gov/ ). The HANDLS study is an ongoing population based longitudinal study with a wealth of data. This position works on the genetic domain of HANDLS using skills in computational biology and statistical genetics, to examine the gene X environment interactions, epigenomic effects, and gene expression changes relevant to understanding aging and health disparities to provide insight into how these interactions result in disproportionate rates of age-related disease and disability.
Candidates must have less than 5 years of postdoctoral experience, a Ph.D. (or M.D.) degree in Population Genetics, Epidemiology, Computational Biology or related fields. The following qualifications are required:
- Excellent programming skills in R, and coding skills in high-performance Linux cluster computing environment
- Experience in high-dimensional data management and analysis skills
- Knowledge of statistical methodologies and their application to biomedical research
- Experience in PLINK and other genomic analysis suites is preferred
- Programming skills in Python or Perl is preferred
- Previous experience in genome-wide association analysis, gene-expression or DNA methylation is preferred
Salary commensurate with research experience, according to the NIH intramural pay scale. Interested applicants should e-mail a curriculum vitae, a brief description of their research interests, and 3 letters of reference to: Mrs. Dana Faulcon, National Institute on Aging, National Institutes of Health, 251 Bayview Blvd, Baltimore, Maryland 21224-6825. E-mail: Dana.Faulcon@nih.gov Review of applications will begin immediately upon receipt.
The NIH is dedicated to building a diverse community in its training and employment programs.
