We are looking for talented and motivated students to join exciting research projects. Positions are available for MSc and PhD students, as well as for a post-doc. Projects are available across the wide spectrum of statistical, population, and medical genetics (see Research tab). Day-to-day work ranges between hands-on medical data analysis and probabilistic modeling, and could therefore fit students with diverse backgrounds such as physics, math, statistics, computer science, biology, and medicine.
Lab members will benefit from working in one of the most fast-paced and exciting scientific fields. The proposed projects have immediate medical consequences, and at the same time, they 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: (any of) Linux (shell scripting), Python/Perl, C++/Java, Matlab/R.
- Strong quantitative skills, in particular in probabilistic modeling, statistics, and machine learning.
- Experience in genomic analysis and bioinformatics tools. Training in genetics will be provided to students without the relevant background.
