Postdoctoral Research Fellow-Data & Tech - Computational Studies in Allergy and Immunology
Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center
Location: Cincinnati, Ohio
Internal Number: 104634
A bioinformatics Research Fellow position is available immediately . The Rothenberg lab is focused on elucidating the mechanisms of allergic responses especially in a disease called Eosinophilic Esophagitis. The laboratory has identified and biologically characterized several critical pathways that regulate allergic responses. The fellow will use NGS data (including whole exome analysis, genome wide association studies, RNA sequencing (single cell and whole tissue) and associated meta-data) and bioinformatics strategies to study the genetic basis of allergic responses. A high degree of collaborative research to establish causal mechanism is in place.
