Principal Investigator, Dennis Hazelett, PhD is looking for a Postdoctoral Scientist to join the team!
The laboratory under Dennis Hazelett, PhD in the Center for Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics is working to understand how genetic variation contributes to disease etiology. One of the keys to unlocking the mechanisms of initiation and progression is understanding the epigenome -- modifications to the packaging of DNA in chromatin that determine gene regulation -- and how it relates to genetic variation.
As a Computational Postdoc in Dr. Hazelett's lab, working independently but in close cooperation and consultation with the Principal Investigator (PI) and other Research Scientists, you will perform routine and complex laboratory procedures throughout training period and may develop, adapt, and implement new research techniques and protocols.
Job Duties and Responsibilities:
May assist in preparation of grant proposals, but is not responsible for generating grant funds.
May participate in publications and presentations as author or co-author.
Designs and performs experiments. Will keep appropriate experimental records and documentation and analyze the results with the PI.
