Postdoctoral Positions

Multiple postdoctoral positions in Statistical Genetics are available at the Center for Statistical Genetics, Department of Neurology, Columbia University, New York, NY.

Postdoctoral scholar positions are available in the following concentrations:

  • Developing statistical methods to analyze complex traits, e.g. approaches to detect pleiotropy and interactions using sequence, imputed, family and population-based data.
  • Developing statistical and computational methods for data integration in genetic association studies and functional genomics.
  • Analyzing complex traits e.g. late-onset Alzheimer’s disease, age-related hearing impairment, tinnitus, lipids, asthma, and obesity.

The successful candidate will also write and publish manuscripts and give presentations at international meetings.

The applicants should have a Ph.D. or related degree in bioinformatics, statistics, physics, epidemiology, computer science or other computational related fields. Must have excellent working knowledge in one or more programming languages e.g. R, Python or C/C++. Previous experience analyzing large scale genomic data is highly desirable.

Please email your curriculum vitae, research statement and the names and contact information for four references to Dr. Suzanne Leal (sml3 [at] and Dr. Gao Wang (gw2411 [at] with the header Statistical Genetics Postdoc.
