Duties: Adam Naj's Lab, part of the Penn Neurodegeneration Genomics Center (PNGC), is hiring a data analyst to participate in ongoing research on the genetics of Alzheimer's Disease and other neurodegenerative disorders. Duties include (1) processing, management, and analysis of data from genome-wide association and high-throughput whole-genome/whole-exome sequencing studies for Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders; (2) collecting and processing functional genomic annotation data for enhanced genetic association analyses; and (3) contributing to the development and testing of novel genomics research software and resources, developed here and elsewhere, for application to genomic studies of Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases. The lab benefits from close collaboration with talented programmers, analysts, and lab technologists, in the Schellenberg and Wang groups in the PNGC, and offers opportunities for career development and academic advancement at PSOM.
Position is contingent on continued funding.
Qualifications: A Bachelor's degree in genetics, epidemiology, bioinformatics, statistics, biology or other related fields, and a minimum of 2 years of experience, or equivalent combination of education and experience, are required. Experience with management and analysis of human genetics data such as genome-wide association studies or next-generation sequencing data is required. Familiarity with R, Linux, SAS, Stata, C/C++, SQL, or web development strongly preferred.
