Postdoctoral Associate in Genomic Molecular Technology Development, Genetics, Yale School of Medicine
Location: New Haven, CT
Internal Number: 107132
The Scharfe laboratory is searching for a postdoctoral biomedical researcher for innovative, novel molecular technology development applied to biomedical research as well as novel clinical diagnostics. We are developing a number of novel tools and genomic approaches for molecular screening and diagnostics and the study of disease pathogenesis. Examples of ongoing work include technology development for screenable disorders in newborns, rapid genotyping of genomic variants to improve patient care, microhaplotype sequencing for population genetics and forensics, and multiplex capture and sequencing for viral nucleic acid testing. We are using next-generation sequencing, microarrays and quantitative PCR for analysis of DNA variants, complex genetic rearrangements, and genomic haplotypes. Our laboratory has a major interest in the analysis of challenging clinical samples such as genetic materials from dried blood spots, cell free circulating DNA and small forensic samples. Our lab is located in a highly translational setting next to the DNA Diagnostic lab and we collaborate the Yale Center for Genome Analysis (YCGA) and with colleagues and researcher at Yale and other institutions.

Please include CV with names of three references and a cover letter describing motivations, research interests and experience, and formal qualifications.
