Positions available

We are always happy to talk with talented individuals at all levels. Our approaches are systematic and blend careful analysis of genetic and genomic data with new ways to interrogate biological systems. Beyond independence, self-motivation and a commitment to excellence we particularly value imagination and a data-centered approach to scientific problems. Strong analytical skills and critical thinking are paramount to our work.

Joining the lab: please email a CV and covering letter to Chris, including a brief statement of why you are interested in our group in particular. If you are considering changing fields, please also tell us how your present skill set can be applied to the problems we work on. We will not respond to generic enquiries – these articles from ASBMB and McGill University (pdf) will help you target your application.

Please understand that we interview a small proportion of applicants and invite an even smaller fraction to join us. We often conduct the introductory parts of interviews by video call and then invite likely candidates to visit physically, present a seminar and interact with the group.

Postdoctoral scientist, statistical genetics

Our laboratory at Yale School of Medicine seeks an exceptional individual to spearhead a project to develop and apply methods to compare genetic associations across immune-mediated diseases. Your efforts will be crucial in identifying the shared and distinct pathogenic mechanisms underlying disease and ultimately in helping re-purpose therapies across disease groups.

The ideal candidate will have demonstrated expertise in the curation, quality control and analysis of genotype data on large cohorts, as well as strong skills in statistical genetics methods, programming and project management. Capabilities in technical writing and presentation skills are also desirable. This is a very exciting position in a dynamic young New Haven-based lab, affiliated with Yale and the Broad Institute. We deeply value imagination, curiosity and initiative.

Post-doctoral/staff data analyst, genomics

Our laboratory at the Broad Institute seeks an experienced data analyst to lead our efforts to understand how disease risk increases when gene regulatory programs are altered. Most disease risk variants affect gene regulatory programs. We seek to explain which genes are being dysregulated, under what conditions, and with what effects. Your efforts would be important in advancing the detection and treatment of serious immunological disorders. Our efforts combine genomic technologies (ChIPseq, RNAseq, enhancer and DNase I mapping) with high throughput immunological assays.

The ideal candidate will have demonstrated expertise in the analysis of genomic and/or genetic data, strong skills in statistical analysis, programming and pipeline deployment, and the ability to efficiently design analyses and flesh out project details. As a leader, you would also provide mentorship to lab members and offer long-term continuity and technical expertise. Technical writing, experience with cloud computing, and presentation skills are also desirable. This is a very exciting position in a dynamic young Cambridge-based lab, affiliated with the Broad Institute and Yale. We deeply value imagination, curiosity and initiative.

Postdoctoral scientist, genetic epidemiology

Our laboratory at Yale School of Medicine seeks an exceptional individual to spearhead a project to understand the genetic and epidemiological overlap between epilepsy and schizophrenia. Your efforts will be crucial in identifying patients at risk of developing both diseases and eventually designing strategies to address the care required by these individuals.

The ideal candidate will have demonstrated expertise in the analysis of epidemiological and/or genetic data, strong skills in statistical analysis, programming and pipeline deployment, and the ability to efficiently design analyses and flesh out project details. Technical writing, experience with cloud computing, and presentation skills are also desirable. This is a very exciting position in a dynamic young New Haven-based lab, affiliated with Yale and the Broad Institute. We deeply value imagination, curiosity and initiative.
