The Lal research groups focusses on translational genetic research and bioinformatics. Research interests involve developing a comprehensive understanding of how alterations in the genome contribute to disease.
The lab pursues questions such as, “Why did the patient develop this disease?” “Will the patient respond to this medication?” “Can we predict the disease prognosis?” “What is the underlying mechanism?” The team is young, however, has published ~90 publications in the last six years, several in prestigious journals such as PNAS, Nature Genetics, Lancet Neurology, Annals of Neurology, Bioinformatics, Genome Medicine, Nuclei Acid Research, and Brain. A full list of recent studies can be found in pubmed using ‘Dennis Lal’ as search term.
The candidates, will be integrated within the Genomic Medicine Institute of the Cleveland Clinic to perform translational genetics research. The position will be at the Lerner Research Institute of the Cleveland Clinic. The team will closely collaborate with other data scientists, neuroscientists as well as epileptologists and clinical researchers from related. Besides local collaborations, the team will interact on a daily to weekly basis with the Lal research groups at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard as well as the Cologne Center for Genomics in Germany. Specifically, we have three open postdoc positions:
WHAT WE OFFER:
Interested applicants should submit a CV, cover letter, and contact information for 3 references to Dr. Dennis Lal via email: email@example.com.
A successful applicant does not need to be an expert in all listed fields but the job will be tailored according to the successful applicant’s qualifications and interests. Requirements vary based on the project the candidate is interested in.
