Integrates, analyzes, interprets, visualizes, and summarizes data.
Operates and maintains equipment and instruments.
Department Specific Responsibilities:
Assist with the integration of multimodal data derived from ALS patients and controls. This may include genetic, genomic, proteomic, metabolomic, imaging, clinical, and demographic data.
Develop, evaluate, and implement computational algorithms and software for the analysis and visualization of multimodal data. This will include artificial intelligence and machine learning methods.
Use bioinformatics databases, methods, and software to interpret results and provide biological explanations for observed data patterns.
Assist with the design of biological experiments to validate computational results.
Minimum of a Doctorate (MD or Ph.D.) in bioinformatics, biomedical informatics, biomathematics, biostatistics, computational biology, computer science, data science, engineering, or related quantitative field, required.
Experience and Skillset:
Independently works on research projects designed in collaboration with one or more mentors within an area of specialization.
Acquires thorough technical and theoretical knowledge of research projects and objectives during one to five (1-5) year post-doctoral appointment.

Knowledge of software version control and high-performance computing.
Knowledge of safety standards and maintenance of specialized equipment.
Working Title: Postdoctoral Scientist - Moore Lab - Computational BioMedicine
Providing healthcare for more than 100 years, Cedars-Sinai has evolved into one of the most dynamic and highly renowned medical centers in the world. Along with caring for patients, Cedars-Sinai is a hub for biomedical research and a training center for future physicians and other healthcare professionals. This attracts exceptional talent to Cedars-Sinai, including world-renowned physician-scientists who seek a place where they can both conduct research and see patients--the ideal formula for discovery and its translation into cures. Our patients benefit from access to doctors at the top of their fields, and our researchers have an ideal community in which to study the impact of healthcare challenges, and reflect that knowledge in their research. The greater Los Angeles area in which Cedars-Sinai resides possesses unparalleled cultural and ethnic diversity which offers outstanding opportunities for translational and clinical research and a dynamic environment for medical education.Although community based, Cedars-Sinai is a major t...eaching hospital affiliated with the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Cedars-Sinai has highly competitive graduate medical education programs in more than 50 specialty and subspecialty areas, a graduate program in biomedical sciences and translational medicine, a clinical scholars program directed towards junior physicians with aspirations to become clinical scientists, and post graduate training opportunities.There are more than 250 full-time faculty members at Cedars-Sinai. The voluntary medical staff, comprised of more than 2,200 specialty board-certified or board-qualified physicians, represent all of the specialties and subspecialties and collaborate with full-time medical staff in the teaching responsibilities of the graduate medical education programs.
