The Genes and Human Disease Research Program at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF), seeks to understand the fundamental question of how genotype influences phenotype in human diseases. The GHD Program invites qualified candidates that share our interests and mission to apply for established Assistant or Associate Member level positions (Assistant or Associate Professor equivalent). Candidates with expertise in one or more of the following areas are of particular interest:
- Large-scale epigenome characterization and mechanisms;
- The application of large-scale CRISPR screens and/or massively parallel reporter assays;
- The development of human model systems using inducible pluripotent stem cells;
- Application of genetic engineering approaches to define molecular mechanisms influencing phenotypes;
- Single cell transcriptomic and epigenomic technologies;
- Approaches to data integration and visualization in genomic/epigenomic studies.
Selected candidates will receive a generous, multi-year startup package with significant, sustained salary and research support, as well as access to considerable departmental clinical and translational research infrastructure.
To apply, submit a completed application, including cover letter, resume/CV, future research plan (3 pages, NIH grant style), career goals, and three letters of recommendation with contact information to GHDfaculty@omrf.org. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Preliminary, confidential inquiries may be referred to Dr. Patrick M. Gaffney, Chair of the Genes and Human Disease Program: Patrick-Gaffney@omrf.org.
