The Broad Institute of MIT & Harvard is looking to hire an exceptional candidate to join the Genotype Tissue Expression initiative (commonfund.nih.gov/GTEx) whose goal is to increase our understanding of how changes in our genes contribute to common human diseases, in order to improve health care for future generations. The successful candidate will join an interdisciplinary team working with unprecedented datasets involving diverse data types and tissue types. By investigating genetic effects across a series of tissues, the project aims to understand the extent of tissue specificity and cross tissue sharing of genetic regulation. The results will be tied in with genome wide association studies to improve discovery of genetic variants involved in disease and other applications.
We are looking for individuals who are enthusiastic about taking a hands-on, problem-solving approach, and collaborating with engineers and scientists in a collegial environment that is infused with intellectual rigor. The ...
