Positions

Postdoctoral Researchers

We are looking for postdoctoral scientists to join our lab at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. We investigate how genetic variation among individuals influences gene expression, cell biology, and complex traits. Typical projects combine wet-lab experimental genomics with statistical genetics & computational biology, using yeast and/or human cells as our model system. In addition to our wet lab, we are part of the Genome Systems Lab, a large collaborative space for computational research that we share with the groups of Chad Myers, Ran Blekhman and Dan Knights.

You will have considerable freedom to follow your own research goals, as long as they broadly fit with the interests of our group. Our lab is supported by generous and highly flexible funding from NIH and other sources, giving us the ability to freely conduct curiosity-driven research. Opportunities also exist to join ongoing projects.

Qualifications: A Ph.D. in genetics, genomics, biology, statistics, computer science, physics, or any relevant combination thereof. Ideal candidates will have expertise in genomics and/or computational biology. Successful applicants will be deeply passionate about their research, have a track record of published achievements (publicly posted preprints are explicitly encouraged), and thrive in a collaborative, rigorous, and diverse environment. The University of Minnesota is an equal opportunity educator and employer.

Please send pdf files of a cover letter explaining your interests and how they fit in the lab, along with your CV and contact information for three references to falbert@umn.edu.
