Associate Professor of Systems Pharmacology and Translational Therapeutics
Associate Professor of Genetics

The lab has a variety of positions open for new students, technicians, and young scientists who are interested in developing computational approaches which translate discoveries from human genetics into insights about the biological basis and genetic architecture of human disease, the history of human evolution, and sequencing genomics activities in non-human species. See the Research page for examples of project areas which are a focus of my lab operations.
If you are interested in exploring potential opportunities, please email a current CV and indicate if you are interested in a specific position or have a more general question about job opportunities.
I have openings for post-doctoral positions immediately available in the lab, one computational and the other, wet-lab experimental.
Projects in the lab invariably focus on understanding the genetic basis of type 2 diabetes and heart disease, targets of natural selection in human populations, or novel biomaterials derived from studies of spider silk genes.
For the coming academic year [Summer 2017 - Spring 2018], I welcome graduate students for rotation in the lab. Ideal students will have a strong background in computational sciences, and projects will be built around human genetic data, bioinformatic applications, statisical genetic analysis, epidemiology, and/or population and systems biology.
