Positions at UCLA Human Genetics


Several full time and Postdoc positions are available in the Array Data Analysis Group at the University of California, Los Angeles. The Array Data Analysis group specializes in the analysis of genomic data (DNA microarrays, metabolic network data, proteomics, tissue microarrays, sequence data) the development and implementation of relevant data analysis methods, the writing and reporting of data analysis reports. Preferred general statistical software packages are R (S-Plus) and SAS.

Training will be provided. Methodological research opportunities available. Candidates should have a relevant PhD (biostatistics, statistics, bioinformatics, machine learning) or a Master's level degree with several years of relevant experience. The competitive salary will be commensurate with experience.

Keywords about the work: data mining, prediction methods, clustering methods, supervised and unsupervised learning, machine learning, regression models (Cox model, generalized linear regression).
