The Genomics Research Center (GRC) is a center of excellence for genetics and genomics that supports both drug discovery and development at AbbVie. The GRC plays an integral role in understanding human disease biology, finding the right targets, and investigating response to our drugs in clinical trials. Within the GRC, the Computational Genomics group works closely with disease area experts to design studies, analyze genomic data, and communicate results. We have an exciting opportunity for a postdoctoral fellow in Computational Genomics, based in Lake County, IL.
The postdoc program offers a balance of structured mentoring and work experience to help participants learn about and contribute to the drug discovery and development process. It also provides a chance to establish working relationships with scientists and leaders across multi-disciplinary groups, including disease area experts in the relevant therapeutic area(s) (Immunology, Oncology, Neuroscience, Virology, and/or General Medicine). The postdoc will have access to a high-performance computing cluster and bioinformatics support. S/he will be encouraged to exercise creativity, innovative thinking, and calculated risk-taking in conducting research projects.
We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to be part of the GRC who will develop and apply computational and statistical methods for one of three potential projects described below. Project of choice will depend on the candidate’s experience and interest. Research results are expected to be published in high-quality peer-reviewed scientific journals and presented at relevant scientific conferences.
