Subject: [d-ssc] Postdoctoral fellowship, Montreal, QC

Ludmer Centre for Neuroinformatics and Mental Health, Montreal, QC & 

McGill University, Montreal, QC Canada 

The recently-launched Ludmer Centre for Neuroinformatics and Mental Health focuses on understanding the genetic and epigenetic influences that shape brain development and the risk for mental disorders. This Centre spans the Lady Davis Research Institute/Institut de Recherches Lady Davis, the Douglas Mental Health University Institute/Douglas Institut Universitaire en Sant é Mentale , and the Montreal Neurological Institute/Institut Neurologique de Montréal, all affiliated with McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada. 

Our team focuses on methods development and data analysis of high-dimensional data, including brain imaging, genetics, genomics and epigenetics. Ongoing studies have collected longitudinal and cross-sectional data on many well-characterized samples from a range of tissues, and offer unique opportunities for studies of genotype–epigenotype–phenotype relations. An exciting opportunity exists for a Postdoctoral Fellow to work on statistical methods for analysis of epigenetic and genetic data, derived from both array-based and sequencing platforms. 

As a postdoctoral fellow, you will be able to interact with researchers, students and other postdoctoral fellows working in statistical genetics and genetic epidemiology at the Ludmer Centre, the Lady Davis Institute and at McGill University. Several seminar series and journal clubs within Montreal will provide excellent opportunities for enlarging your knowledge in other areas of high-throughput genetics, genomics and statistics. 

Qualifications: A recent PhD in Statistics, Biostatistics, Computer Science, Computational Biology, or a related field as long as the candidate has a strong foundation in theoretical statistics. Very good programming skills are essential. Experience and knowledge in human genetics would be an asset but is not required. We are looking for a highly-motivated individual with a desire to develop an independent research agenda. 

To apply : Send a curriculum vitae, relevant publications or manuscripts, a statement outlining your research interests, and contact information for three referees to Dr. Celia Greenwood, (c/o Lauren Mokry, lauren.mokry@ladydavis.ca ). (Posted May 2014, recruitment will continue until positions are filled). This position is funded by a CIHR operating grant.
