The Neuroimaging Genomics Laboratory, co-led by Drs. Andrew Saykin and Kwangsik Nho of the Indiana University School of Medicine Center for Neuroimaging (CfN), has immediate full-time openings for one or more outstanding, highly motivated post-doctoral research fellows with special interest in human genomics/computational systems biology to work on the genetics of Alzheimer's disease and related disorders (ADRD) using state-of-the-science integrative approaches to analyze multi-omics data. The Lab's overarching goals are 1) to achieve a better understanding of the complex causes and mechanisms leading to ADRD, 2) to improve early detection and longitudinal monitoring by combining genomics, fluid biomarkers and advanced neuroimaging and 3) to identify novel targets for diagnostic use and therapeutic intervention.
Applicants must currently reside in the U.S. and/or be eligible to begin work in the U.S. Review of applicants will continue until the positions are filled.
