A Postdoctoral Scholar position is immediately available to work with the Love and Stein Labs at UNC-Chapel Hill on statistical and causal inference method development for analysis of large genomic datasets. The goal of this project is to develop mechanistic understandings of genetic risk for neuropsychiatric disorders as mediated through multiple layers of biology, through robust statistical modeling followed by experimental validation in human stem cell culture. The position will involve analysis and modeling of multi-omics datasets (genotype, ATAC-seq, RNA-seq, cellular phenotypes), and integration of additional cohorts and datasets (tissue-level and disease phenotypes). The work will connect closely with multiple international groups via active collaborations, and seek to maximize impact through open source software release, and engaging, interactive presentation of scientific results.
This NIH-funded project is a collaborative effort between Dr. Love, Dr. Stein, and with input from Dr. Patrick Sullivan and Dr. Yun Li.
