We are looking for talented and motivated PhD students/post-docs with 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 (see Research tab). 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. 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: 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 but not mandatory: experience in genomics and bioinformatics.
