Data Analyst, Senior - (job number: 3038997)
The Psychiatric and Neurodevelopmental Genetics Unit (PNGU) in the MGH Center for Genomic Medicine (CGM) has an immediate opening for a data analyst on the MGH Main Campus (Boston). Working under the direction of Dr. Erin Dunn (www.thedunnlab.com), the data analyst will be responsible for conducting data management and statistical analysis tasks for several large-scale epidemiological studies. Current projects are focused on: (1) the effects of exposure to childhood adversity on risk for psychopathology; (2) genomic, transcriptomic, and epigenomic predictors of susceptibility to depression; and (3) gene-environment interplay, or how genetic variation modifies the effect of exposure to experience on downstream phenotypes. For more information and to apply, see: http://www.massgeneral.org/careers/jobsearch.aspx Direct inquiries are also welcome.
We are always open to inquiries from individuals wishing to join the lab. In general, we are looking for people who have strong statistical skills and capacity to work with large epidemiological datasets. We are also open to working with those who have a good quantitative background, are highly motivated, and able to quickly learn new statistical techniques. Most importantly, we are looking for team players who are curious, interested in interdisciplinary approaches, and deeply passionate about finding ways to prevent mental illness.
To apply, email your CV and a brief letter of interest to Dr. Dunn.
