Position Detail

Postdoctoral research position in genetic epidemiology using electronic health record data sets

Internal Medicine/Biomedical informatics

The Mosley lab is looking for a motivated post-doc interested in using genetic approaches in conjunction with large data sets such as electronic health record (EHR)-linked DNA biobanks and epidemiological cohorts. In particular, we are interested in developing approaches and applications that use common genetic variation to guide clinical practice.

Post-doctoral candidates should have completed a M.D., PhD or similar degree with training or experience in complex disease genetics or a related discipline. The ideal candidate would have experience with genetic methods related to studying complex genetic phenotypes and a clinical or biological background. 

Desired skills include:
(1) An understanding of genetic epidemiological approaches.
(2) An ability to analyze and work with large data sets within a Linux environment.
(3) Phenotype development and validation using de-identified medical records.
(4) Polygenic approaches such as risk scores.


Interested applicants should forward a cover letter describing research interests, CV, training grant eligibility and contact information for professional references to Jonathan Mosley.
