Subject: [d-ssc] Postdoctoral Training in Large-Scale Biostatistics

Reliable interpretation of genomic and genetic information makes
unprecedented demands for innovations in statistical methodology and
its application to biological systems. This unique opportunity drives
research at the Statomics Lab of the Ottawa Institute of Systems
Biology (http://www.statomics.com). The Statomics Lab seeks a
postdoctoral fellow who will collaboratively develop and apply novel
methods of statistical inference to attack current problems in
analyzing data from genome-wide association studies and other
high-dimensional biological data.

Experience in computationally intensive data analysis is essential, as
is the ability to quickly develop reliable software implementing the
statistical algorithms developed. Strong initiative, excellent
communication skills, and reception of a PhD or equivalent doctorate
in statistical genetics, statistics, bioinformatics, computer science,
mathematics, physics, any field of engineering, or an equally
quantitative field within four years prior to the start date are also
absolutely necessary. The following qualities are desirable but not
required: working knowledge of statistical genetics;  familiarly with
R, S-PLUS, Mathematica, C, Fortran, and/or LaTeX; experience in a UNIX
or Linux environment.

To apply, send a PDF CV that has contact information of three
references to dbickel@uottawa.ca, with “GWA Postdoctoral Fellowship”
and the year of your graduation or anticipated graduation in the
subject field of the message. In the message body, concisely present
evidence that you meet each requirement for the position and describe
your most significant papers and software packages with summaries of
how you contributed to them. All applicants are thanked in advance;
only those selected for further consideration will receive a response.
