Department of Biostatistics -- Section on Statistical Genetics -- T32 POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP

Funding Agency:
University of Alabama

The Section on Statistical Genetics in the Department of Biostatistics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham is accepting applications from statistical and other cardiovascular scientists for postdoctoral positions in Statistical Genetics pertaining to Heart, Lung, and Blood phenotypes. Starting dates are open and flexible. Appointments will be for two years, with the possibility of an extension for another year depending on productivity. Salary is commensurate with qualifications, but in all cases equals or exceeds the minimum NIH post-doctoral stipend. Applicants with a strong background in statistics, statistical genetics, genetic epidemiology or cardiovascular disease research are given preference.

The training program is designed for post-doctoral trainees who have received a Ph.D., M.D., D.O., D.D.S., D.V.M., O.D., D.P.M., Sc.D., Eng.D., Dr.P.H., D.N.Sc., or equivalent degree in the basic sciences, from an accredited domestic or foreign institution; the program is for those who seek training at the interface between statistics and cardiovascular diseases.  Criteria for selection include: a demonstrated research ability in statistics or a relevant scientific discipline, interest and (to a lesser degree) experience in project areas, strength in computation, proficiency in verbal and written communication, and a genuine commitment to methodological and cross-disciplinary research in quantitative genetics.

Women, persons with disabilities, and members of underrepresented minority groups are particularly encouraged to apply.

The Application should consist of a brief letter of interest containing addresses, telephone number(s) and US citizenship or US permanent residency status (required for NHLBI T32 training programs); names of three of references, a full CV, and a one-page statement of interest.
