A post-doctoral position in human computational genomics/transcriptomics is available at Columbia University’s Center for Translational and Computational Neuroimmunology (https://www.columbiactcn.org) in New York City. The center brings together clinicians, neuroscientists, immunologists, computational researchers, and molecular biologists to study the mechanisms of neurodegeneration across multiple diseases.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and energetic individual to join our research effort investigating the functional consequences of human genetic and transcriptomic variation in the aging brain. Specifically, we are building multi-modal network models of neurodegenerative disease and aging-related cognitive decline based on single-cell and single-nucleus RNA-sequencing of post-mortem human brain tissue, complemented by large-scale genetics, epigenetics, and proteomics data.
Ph.D. in computational biology/neuroscience, bioinformatics, applied mathematics, statistics, biostatistics, physics, computer science, or related area. A Ph.D. in biology or neuroscience with extensive quantitative and programming experience would also be suitable.
