Postdoctoral position available

We are looking for an outstanding postdoctoral scientist to join our new lab at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. The Albert lab investigates how genetic differences among individuals influence gene expression, cell biology and complex traits in species ranging from yeast to humans. We also study how these genetic architectures evolve. Typical projects in the lab combine cutting edge experimental genomic technologies with sophisticated statistical & computational analyses. We provide a great environment for experts in either one of these areas to expand into the other. Our wet lab is located directly next to the new Genome Systems Lab, a large collaborative space for computational research that we share with the groups of Chad Myers, Ran Blekhman and Dan Knights.

You will have considerable freedom to build your career by following your own research goals, assuming they broadly fit with the interests of our group. Opportunities also exist to join ongoing projects.

Qualifications: A Ph.D. in genetics, genomics, biology, statistics, computer science, physics, or any relevant combination thereof. Ideal candidates will have expertise in experimental and / or computational biology. Successful applicants will be deeply passionate about their research, have a track record of published achievements (publicly posted preprints are explicitly encouraged), and thrive in a collaborative, rigorous and diverse environment. The University of Minnesota is an equal opportunity educator and employer.

Please send pdf files of a cover letter explaining your interests and how they fit in the lab, along with your CV and contact information for three references to falbert@umn.edu.
