The Mood and Anxiety Disorders Section of the Human Genetics Branch of the NIMH Intramural Research Program has an immediate opening for a post-doctoral scientist with interest in genetics, statistics, or computational biology to join a dynamic group of investigators studying genes involved in the etiology of major mental illness. This inter-disciplinary group of scientists investigates the genetic basis of severe mental illness using a variety of approaches, including next-generation sequencing, GWAS, and iPSC-derived cellular models.
Applicants must hold a recent MD and/or PhD degree in medical, biological, or mathematical sciences and be willing to commit to two to 6 years of full-time research.
