A genomics post-doctoral position is available at The Ohio State University working in an exciting position between the labs of Dr. Ray Hershberger, a cardiac failure and heart transplantation physician-scientist and Professor of Medicine and Director, Division of Human Genetics;  Dr. Sucheston-Campbell, a genetic epidemiologist and Associate Professor in the Colleges of Pharmacy and Veterinary Medicine; and Dr. Daniel Kinnamon, a statistical geneticist and Research Assistant Professor and Director of Human Genetics Research Informatics, Division of Human Genetics. This post is focused on genetic susceptibility to dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and will work collaboratively with a transdisciplinary multi-institutional team of clinicians, translational scientists and genetic counselors to formulate and test genomic hypotheses about hereditary DCM ( using familial genomic datasets.

The successful applicant will have experience analyzing large genomic datasets (NGS, exome-wide or genome-wide) in a Linux/Unix environment, as well as good computational skills and experience using R. Experience using literate programming and/or version control systems, such as Git, to ensure reproducible research is desirable. Strong enthusiasm to develop and/or improve analytic skills involving analyses of family data is imperative, as is desire to work in a collaborative team environment.

The post-doctoral fellow will gain considerable bi-directional mentorship in genetic and molecular epidemiology and cardiac medicine. Drs. Hershberger, Sucheston-Campbell, and Kinnamon all enjoy mentoring graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are interested in expanding their genomic computational skills and contributing to DCM research.

A Ph.D. in a relevant field such as genetic epidemiology, statistical genetics, biostatistics or bioinformatics is required. Interested individuals should email the following documents to

       a curriculum vitae

       contact names of three referees

       a ONE page personal statement of background and interests.  

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
