We occasionally search for motivated PhD students/post-docs with strong quantitative skills to join the lab. Experience in programming, computer science, and/or statistics is a prerequisite. Projects are available across the spectrum of statistical, population, and medical genetics. Day-to-day work ranges between hands-on medical data analysis and probabilistic modeling, and could fit students with diverse backgrounds and interests.
Lab members will benefit from working in an extremely fast-paced and exciting scientific field. Some proposed projects have immediate medical consequences, and some provide an opportunity for sophisticated basic research in probability and statistics. Successful research accomplishments are also a platform for careers in the rapidly-growing fields of data sciences, health analytics, and precision medicine.
- Programming experience: one or more of Linux (shell scripting), Python/Perl, C++/Java, Matlab/R.
- Strong quantitative skills, in particular in probabilistic modeling, statistics, and machine learning.
- Preferred: experience in genomics and bioinformatics.
