Center for Human Genetics Job Openings

Bioinformatician/Statistical Geneticist

A position is available for a bioinformatician/statistical geneticist staff scientist in the newly established Center for Human Genetics at Clemson University. The Clemson Center for Human Genetics is located in Greenwood, South Carolina, on the Greenwood Genetic Center Research Park. This is a non-tenure track research scientist position, which requires a Ph.D. degree with a record of productivity. The ideal candidate will have expertise in bioinformatics analyses of next generation sequencing data (DNA, RNA, ChIP); analysis of metabolic and proteomic data; statistical genetic and quantitative genetic data analysis and computational biology. The successful candidate will conduct collaborative research and is expected to publish, and provide advice and support to faculty members, postdocs and students in the Center for Human Genetics. The position requires excellent interpersonal and communication skills. Enquiries should be addressed to Dr. Trudy F.C. Mackay, Self Family Endowed Professor and Director of the Center for Human Genetics, Clemson University, Self Regional Hall, 114 Gregor Mendel Circle, Greenwood, SC 29646 or to tmackay@clemson.edu

Applications must include a cover letter explaining the qualifications for this position, a curriculum vitae with list of publications, and the names of three references. The position is available immediately. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience. Clemson University is an equal opportunity employer.

Applications should be submitted electronically via this link: https://bit.ly/2BBYQXq

Postdoctoral Fellow

The laboratories of Trudy Mackay and Robert Anholt at the new Clemson University Center for Human Genetics invite applications for a postdoctoral fellow to support a newly awarded NIH grant. A major challenge of modern biology is to determine how DNA sequence variants give rise to phenotypic variation for complex organismal traits through modulation of regulatory gene networks. This research project seeks to reverse engineer natural genetic variation in Drosophila using CRISPR/Cas9 precise allelic replacement to functionally validate genetic associations of common and rare molecular variants and long non-coding RNAs with organismal phenotypes and transcriptional networks. The successful applicant will have expertise in CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing, next generation sequencing methods and analysis, Drosophila genetics and quantitative genetics. Applicants should have a strong record of research productivity, excellent oral and written communication skills, and the ability to perform independent as well as collaborative research. A Ph.D. in genetics or related field is required.

Enquiries should be addressed to Dr. Trudy F.C. Mackay, Self Family Endowed Professor and Director of the Center for Human Genetics, Clemson University, Self Regional Hall, 114 Gregor Mendel Circle, Greenwood, SC 29646 or to tmackay@clemson.edu.

Applications must include a cover letter explaining the qualifications for this position, a curriculum vitae with list of publications, and the names of three references. The position is available immediately. Clemson University is an equal opportunity employer.

A major challenge of modern biology is to determine how DNA sequence variants give rise to phenotypic variation for complex organismal traits through modulation of regulatory gene networks. This research project seeks to reverse engineer natural genetic variation in Drosophila using CRISPR/Cas9 precise allelic replacement to functionally validate genetic associations of common and rare molecular variants and long non-coding RNAs with organismal phenotypes and transcriptional networks. The successful applicant will have previous experience in Drosophila genetics, genetic transformation, CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing, and basic molecular biology (PCR, genotyping). Salary will be commensurate with credentials and experience.
