Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Division of Interventional Neuroradiology, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA

Posted by: UCLA

Posted date: Jul-10-2017

Location: Los Angeles

Our group seeks to identify genetic biomarkers that can be used in conjunction with various imaging modalities to generate disease outcome models that more accurately assess risk of stroke disease progression. These models can be used to promote medical intervention when patients are seemingly asymptomatic, but at an increased risk of fatality due to insidious factors of disease state. We are seeking a highly competent and self-driven postdoctoral researcher with experience in human functional genomics including high-throughput sequencing, bioinformatic analysis of large data, whole-exome sequencing (WES), candidate gene association studies (CGAS) or genome-wide associate studies (GWAS). Under the direction of the PI, you will work with leading physicians and their clinical patients at the state-of-the-art facilities of UCLA Ronald Reagan Hospital. Your primary duty will be to design and implement approaches that decipher genetic predisposition to select disease states in clinical study participants. The ideal candidate will have a demonstrated record of publication in relevant fields and success writing and securing research grant funding.

Experience in computational analyses of large genomic data and functional genomics approaches is highly preferred.

This position is immediately available with a competitive salary and full fringe benefits. Please supply the following information to chienlab.ucla(at)gmail.com with "Post-Doctoral Fellow – Stroke Genetics" In the subject line: 1) your CV with a reprint of two representative publications, 2) a two-page statement of previous research experience and of future research interest in the Chien lab, and 3) at least three references including contact information. Reference letters will be requested only for highly qualified candidates. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
