Requirements
  • PhD in statistical genetics, genetic epidemiology, biostatistics, or related field
  • Strong foundational knowledge of quantitative genetics (GWAS, QTL mapping, heritability estimation, etc.), population genetics, and applied statistics
  • Demonstrated experience applying post-GWAS analyses to predict causal mechanisms underlying disease loci (fine mapping, colocalization, functional enrichment, etc.)
  • Experience integrating GWAS data with human genomic data (RNA-seq, ATAC-seq, ChIP-seq, etc.) a plus
  • Demonstrated proficiency in a relevant programming language (R, Python, etc.)
  • Experience developing novel models, algorithms, or software implementations a plus
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills to both technical and non-technical audiences
  • Demonstrated ability to work in a dynamic environment as a team player with a strong work ethic.

  • Continuously learns and adapts quickly to new information
  • Authentic, proactively appreciative of different points of view, backgrounds and perspectives
Responsibilities
  • Design and leverage cloud-scale analysis pipelines to integrate human genetic data, internally generated genomic data, and externally generated genomic data to predict mechanisms underlying complex diseases and nominate novel drug targets
  • Collaborate with computational biologists and wet-lab biologists to validate predicted mechanisms
  • Collaborate with biomedical informaticists to connect predicted mechanisms to patient subpopulations
  • Collaborate with software engineers and data engineers to acquire, organize, and efficiently query human genetic data
  • Maintain awareness of emerging methods in statistical genetics and computational biology
  • Prepare written and oral presentation of results to the team
