Position Title: Postdoctoral Fellowship in Statistical Genetics/Genomics

Duties and Responsibilities: Applications are invited for postdoctoral fellow positions to join Dr. Xiang Zhou’s research group in the Department of Biostatistics at the University of Michigan. These positions emphasize developing statistical methods and computational tools for high-dimensional biological data from genome-wide association studies and/or functional genomic sequencing studies. Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to, (1) SNP heritability estimation and phenotype prediction using dense genotypes and/or sequence data; (2) integrative modeling of complex traits with genotypes, expression and other omics data; (3) association mapping by incorporating multiple traits, multiple SNPs, and pathways; (4) differential expression analysis in bisulfite sequencing, RNA sequencing or other functional genomics sequencing studies; (5) modeling and analysis of single cell sequencing data. The successful candidates will be undertaking methodological development and will have the opportunity to analyze a variety of large-scale data types.
