We invite applications for a postdoctoral scholar to conduct cutting-edge laboratory, statistical, or bioinformatic analyses of genomic, transcriptomic, and epigenomic data. All projects are funded. We focus particularly on schizophrenia, major depression, and eating disorders. We are deeply collaborative and actively work with many major genetic, psychiatric, neuroscience, and functional genomic groups.

Given all the complexities of 2020, it is hazardous to define any position narrowly and we are thus open to a relative broad range of applicants with a mix of dry and wet bench training. In both instances, an “omic” focus is preferred, particularly within the context of the brain.

Educational Requirements

Ph.D. in genetics, statistics/biostatistics, neuroscience, or related field.

Qualifications and Experience

Substantial experience in analysis of multiple types of modern datasets (e.g., genome-wide association, exome sequencing, whole genome sequencing, RNA-sequencing, ATAC-seq, Hi-C, ChIP-seq, etc.). Good programming skills are essential (e.g., R, Python) in order to flexibly manipulate large datasets along with the use of standard pipelines for analysis, bioinformatic integration, and gene set analyses.

Equal Opportunity Employer

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, color, disability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, race, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or status as a protected veteran.
