Research Associate Scholar’s position is immediately available in a genetic epidemiology for finding and characterizing susceptibility loci for type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Major foci involve large-scale genome-wide association and high-throughput sequencing diabetic families and population datasets and follow-up functional studies using transgenic Zebrafish model. Qualifications include but not limited to a graduate degree in Molecular Biology, Genetics, Biochemistry, Computational Biology, or related fields. Applicants with expertise in molecular biology, molecular genetics or cell functional studies with experience in model organisms, cell culture and/or high throughput genome analysis and familiarity for the use of statistical genetics and computational software will be preferred. Highly motivated individuals with intense interest in science and enthusiasm to understand the genetic complexities of metabolic diseases are invited to apply for this position. Candidates must be self-driven, enthusiastic, fast learner, and well organized. Must be able to multi-task and solve problems creatively and with the ability to work independently as well as in a team. Candidates with fresh Ph.D. and first-author publications in internationally recognized journals are preferred.
Position requires performing various duties including high-throughput sample preparation, SNP genotyping, microarrays, and genetic and genome-wide data analysis for genome-metabolome studies, manuscript preparation while paying strict attention to details and use of complex equipment and computer terminals. Starting salary will be commensurate with training and experience.
