Texas Biomed is searching for an exceptional postdoctoral scientist to work on understanding the consequences of genetic variation in pedigreed primate populations. The position will be in the Southwest National Primate Research Center (SNPRC) Genomics and Data Science Core, which functions to support and advise the SNPRC on its non-human Primate (NHP) genomics resource and research activities. Over the last 50 years the SNPRC has developed several large, pedigreed, nonhuman primate colonies (baboons, rhesus macaque, and marmoset). Animals in these pedigrees have been extensively characterized at the genetic and phenotypic level. The successful applicant will work closely with a team of investigators to perform population and statistical genetic analyses, to support genetic characterization of the NHP colonies and develop breeding strategies to maintain genetic diversity.
EDUCATION/EXPERIENCE/SKILLS: Required: Doctoral degree. Experience with next generation sequencing data (genomic, transcriptomic or epigenetic) and statistical or population genetic analysis is essential. Candidates with a strong bioinformatics background and knowledge of scientific programming languages (for example, R, python, C++) are strongly encouraged to apply.
OTHER: This is a full-time salaried (exempt) position. Texas Biomed business hours are Mondays through Fridays 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Texas Biomed is committed to a drug-free workplace. Pre-employment drug screen is required.
