Candidates for this fellowship should have skills in population genetics theory or gene mapping of complex traits. Experience with data wrangling of large-scale data sets either on local machines, in compute clusters, or in a cloud-computing environment is also required. Several research projects may be included in this fellowship.
This fellowship is open to a postdoctoral researcher or early-career investigator who wishes to focus on identifying novel candidate genes and variants that predispose people to cancer susceptibility. This research employs next-generation sequencing. An understanding of germline genetics and cancer biology and genetics is essential.
