The Sullivan laboratory at UNC-CH invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to conduct statistical or bioinformatic analyses of genomic, transcriptomic, and epigenomic data. We focus particularly on schizophrenia, major depression, and eating disorders. We are deeply collaborative and actively work with many major genetic, psychiatric, neuroscience, and functional genomic groups in the US, Scandinavia, Europe, India, and Australia. The individual will have the opportunity to help with multiple projects studying the genetics of various psychiatric disorders. We have multiple large datasets, and all projects are funded. The position will be set for one year with the opportunity to be reappointed yearly. The postdoc would work with Dr. Sullivan to create a multi-year plan to maximize scientific output, pursue opportunities to obtain grant funding, and progress toward an independent career.
