Research Opportunities – McDonnell Genome Institute – 49857

  • The McDonnell Genome Institute is a world-class genomics institute with a rich history of significant contributions to genomics technology and human health.  There has been an explosion of gene mutations (variants) associated with human disease derived from genome sequencing or genome-wide association studies (GWAS). This success has generated a new challenge – understanding the function of these genes and the consequences of their mutation. We are looking for a scientist to help us develop high-throughput methods to interrogate the impact of specific variants on cellular function. This information will be used to understand the molecular basis of the cellular abnormalities and aid in the diagnosis and treatment of human disease. The ideal candidate will be passionate about working at the intersection of genomic technology and the biology of human disease.  The ideal candidate will be amenable to working with a highly interdisciplinary team that includes data scientists, engineers, physicians, and biologists on projects that interweave cell biology, machine learning, genome editing, genomics, and high content imaging.
