The Frazer lab has open positions for approximately 2-3 postdocs and/or project scientists.
Current areas of focus for the group include, but are not limited to (1) computational analysis of DNA mutations and modeling of gene expression in cancer (leukemia, breast, CNS lymphoma); (2) identification and data analysis of DNA variants underlying childhood diseases (infectious, Mendelian, syndromes); (3) functional annotation of genomic intervals identified as associated with human disease (combining laboratory and computational methods).
Almost all projects collaborate with leading experts at UCSD in the various biological disciplines. One of the positions is in the Moores Cancer Center Biostatistiscs /Bioinformatics Shared resource, working jointly with Dr. Karen Messer (email@example.com) and the Frazer lab in support of Cancer Genomics. Based on experience a Project Scientist position is also a possibility. In all positions there is opportunity for participation in the design and execution of laboratory experiments.
We are seeking applicants who are creative and independent but able to effectively work within a team of individuals with diverse skills. They should have strong computational skills, and a strong interest in biological applications. A background in genomics and/or statistics would be an advantage. Proficiency in the use of currently existing bioinformatic programs and tools for human DNA sequence analysis, knowledge of public genomic databases, gene expression analysis, and association study analysis is essential. Strong programming skills are a plus.
To apply, please send a CV to Kelly Frazer (firstname.lastname@example.org) and include information describing current research and contact details for three references
