The Laboratory of Population Epigenetics at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth in the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology and the Section of Epidemiology and Biostatistics in the Department of Community and Family Medicine (PI: Carmen Marsit) invites highly qualified and motivated applicants to a Postdoctoral Research Associate position in population epigenomics. The laboratory is currently investigating the influence of the environment on the human epigenome and the health ramification of alterations to the human epigenome. Projects in the lab focus on studies of children’s environmental health as well as human cancer. The postdoctoral associate will work on research projects focused on the statistical and bioinformatics analysis of genome-wide DNA methylation data obtained in epidemiologic investigations. Opportunities for the associate to apply for independent funding will be available and encouraged.
Applicants should possess a Ph.D. in Statistics/Biostatistics, Computational Biology, Bioinformatics, Environmental Health, Epidemiology or other relevant disciplines. Strong quantitative skills and practical experience working on high dimensional data is necessary, and specific experience in using the R programming environment is essential. Experience with genome-scale DNA methylation or other epigenetic data, and use of bioinformatic databases and platforms is desirable.
The postdoctoral associate will work closely with Dr. Marsit and other postdoctoral associates and predoctoral students in the laboratory as well as with wet-lab scientists. The laboratory is part of the Institute for Quantitative Biomedical Sciences (iQBS), the Dartmouth Hitchcock Norris Cotton Comprehensive Cancer Center, and the Children’s Environmental Health and Disease Prevention Center, and the resources and collaborators in the programs will also be available to the postdoctoral associate.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information of three people who could provide letters of reference to Dr. Carmen Marsit, eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%43%61%72%6d%65%6e%2e%4a%2e%4d%61%72%73%69%74%40%64%61%72%74%6d%6f%75%74%68%2e%65%64%75%22%3e%43%61%72%6d%65%6e%2e%4a%2e%4d%61%72%73%69%74%40%64%61%72%74%6d%6f%75%74%68%2e%65%64%75%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b')); Address: Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, 7650 Remsen, Room 520, Hanover, NH 03755.
