Postdoctoral Fellow Position

April 30, 2018

We are recruiting a postdoctoral fellow with experience in programming, statistics, and/or genetics to help us develop methods to elucidate the genetic architecture of complex traits using genome-wide data. This NIH funded work is being conducted at the Institute for Behavioral Genetics (IBG), University of Colorado, Boulder (PI Matthew Keller)...
