Academic Level:
Postdoc & Early Career

Description:
The Hussman Institute for Human Genomics (HIHG) at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine is seeking post-doctoral fellows interested in joining our cutting-edge research team. This position affords the opportunity to work with Drs. Margaret Pericak-Vance, William Scott, Eden Martin, and Gary Beecham on one of several projects examining the genetic epidemiology of complex diseases, including age-related macular degeneration, Parkinson disease, and Alzheimer disease. The interdisciplinary and highly-collaborative faculty of the HIHG aims to discover the genetic influences on human health and apply this knowledge to the practice of medicine through improved diagnostics, treatments, and medications. The faculty has a unique track-record identifying genetic risk factors for more than 60 diseases combined with currently available funding of more than $34 million from the National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Department of Defense.

Ongoing projects include large-scale genomics datasets including genome wide association and next generation sequencing data as well as participation in international research consortia. Applicants should have experience in epidemiology, computational genetics, and/or statistics. The ability to work in an interdisciplinary team is expected. The Hussman Institute for Human Genomics is located in the highly diverse and fast-growing metropolitan area of South Florida with spectacular outdoor recreational opportunities. We offer competitive post-doctoral salaries and benefits.

Qualified candidates are encouraged to email Curriculum Vitae and list of three references to hihginfo@med.miami.edu with "genetic epidemiology post-doctoral position" in the subject line.
