9/16/19 Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Human Genetics Individual contributor South San Francisco, California

The McCarthy postdoc group at SSF will focus on developing and implementing analytical and experimental strategies that maximise the value of human genetics for drug discovery and precision medicine. The research will build upon work undertaken in Dr McCarthy’s academic research program at Oxford. One major area of research interest will continue to revolve around the prioritization and functional characterization of therapeutic targets -- for example, through implementing strategies for connecting regulatory variants to their downstream targets, and the high throughput perturbation of those targets in suitable cellular systems. A second strand will involve the use of global and partitioned risk scores to stratify risk, and to capture etiological and clinical heterogeneity, and the translational application of those scores. The group will continue to develop and apply these approaches in the area of metabolic disease (in part through continued interaction with academic researchers in genetic and functional consortia), but will also seek to implement analogous approaches across the wider range of diseases of interest to Genentech. 

The successful candidate will have a PhD and/or MD from a highly reputable institution, with training in either the life sciences (biology, medicine etc) or computational sciences (maths, physics, computational science, bioinformatics etc), but with proficiency and experience that spans both. As well as a strong publication record, they will have excellent communication skills, and interest in exploiting the potential of human genetics to gain fundamental insights into the biology of disease. Postdocs in our lab work in a challenging and stimulating yet supportive and interactive environment, becoming independent scientists with the ability to lead their own research groups.
