We are seeking an experienced researcher to join our Science Foundation Ireland funded research project on the "Discovery to clinical utility of rare variants in neurodevelopmental disorders". The researcher will join Dr Lopez and her team undertaking genomic studies of neurodevelopmental disorders. Her research works to identify genetic differences within families that are associated with autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders using genome sequencing. They also investigate if genome variation at the population level can tell us more about rare genomic variation in neurodevelopmental disorders and the underlying genetic links between disorders and human traits.

We are looking to appoint a computational genomics-oriented researcher with experience in the analysis of human genome sequencing data and/or experience in biological interpretation of genomic variants. The successful candidate will lead genomic analysis on families with neurodevelopmental disorders using whole genome sequencing, prepare and publish their results and develop research applications for upcoming funding opportunities. This post will be for 12 months, with an anticipated commencement month of August 2020.
