A 3yr Research Fellow position is available at the Queensland Brain
Institute (QBI), University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia. 

The Research Fellow will be part of the Mowry Group at QBI, whose
primary research goal is to identify and functionally characterise
susceptibility genes for schizophrenia and related disorders. One prime
area of interest is whole exome sequencing and GWAS.

The group has just been awarded significant Australian Health and
Medical Research Council (NHMRC) funding (2014-2016) for genetic
analysis of de novo and inherited protein-coding sequence variation in
schizophrenia (sequencing 1000 exomes initially ). 

The successful applicant will be expected to be involved in this
project, and generally to provide expert advice to QBI staff and
researchers from its collaborating groups. Together with the Group
Leader, the appointee will help develop the strategic plan for the
direction of the overall research program. Using high-level knowledge of
research issues in the field, and incorporating current advances in
knowledge of schizophrenia genetics, the successful applicant will be
responsible for applying advanced statistical methods to the analyses of
data in the genetics of schizophrenia.
