The Human Genome Sequencing Center (HGSC) at Baylor College of
Medicine is recruiting a Postdoctoral Associate to carry out
genomic and bioinformatic research utilizing next generation
sequencing data for discovery of genomics variants that underlie
susceptibility to cancer and/or congenital anomalies in pediatric
patients. This position requires a trained bioinformatician,
preferably with experience in genomics and next generation
sequencing. We are looking for an enthusiastic, driven team player
with excellent written and verbal communication skills. The
position will interact with laboratory molecular biologists in the
study to prioritize mutations for functional validation. There will
also be opportunities to contribute to other projects at the HGSC
that drive gene discovery in areas of human health and precision
medicine in both Mendelian and complex diseases. The appointment
will be initially for 3 years with prospects for renewal.
