Full Time Postdoctoral Position
A postdoctoral position in bioinformatics or data science is available at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. The successful candidate will be joining the Suarez-Farinas Lab, a collaborative group, involving the Center for Biostatistics and the Department of Genetics and Genomic Sciences. Our primary focus is analysis of high-dimensional biomarker studies coupled with mechanistic clinical trials, with a focus on immune-related diseases including food allergy, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, viral infections and sleep apnea. Our team uses and develop state of the art statistical and AI methodology to discover disease mechanisms, to identify new biomarkers of disease activity and, to develop precision medicine tools.
We seek capable and self-motivated individuals who have earned a doctoral degree or foreign equivalent in an interdisciplinary, data-driven field, with educational emphasis in bioinformatics/data science/machine learning /statistics. Additional qualifications include: a superior academic performance, proficiency in R, Python, experience with handling of Big Data and an ability to be self-directed with broadly-defined limits on assignments; excellent communication skills, both oral and written; and a demonstrated ability to interact efficiently with diverse people in a highly multidisciplinary environment. Job description: The applicant is expected to show excellence in independently conducting analyses of high dimensional data (such transcriptomic, proteomic or wearable device data) including but not limited to applying methods for normalization and quality control (QC), statistical modeling of longitudinal data and machine learning algorithms. This is a full-time, two-year postdoctoral position.
Review of applications will begin upon receiving. Interested individuals should send a CV and the names of three references to Dr. Suarez-Farinas (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a subject line "postdoc position").
