Hiring for Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) in Human Genetics

The Clemson University Center for Human Genetics and the Greenwood Genetic Center have been awarded a five year Phase I COBRE in Human Genetics grant to understand the genetic, genomic, and epigenetic mechanisms by which molecular genetic variation affects transcriptional and other molecular networks in health and disease. Several positions are available immediately.

  • The Research Core is seeking a Molecular Genetics Technician and a Programmer. Contact Dr. Trudy Mackay (tmackay@clemson.edu) for details.
  • Project 1 (CRISPR Screening in Cultured Human Cells) is seeking a Research Technician. Contact Dr. Andrei Alexandrov (andreia@clemson.edu) for details.
  • Project 2 (Mechanisms of Disease Pathogenesis in Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation) is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow. Contact Dr. Heather Flanagan Steet (heatherfs@ggc.org) for details.
  • Project 3 (Transposable Elements, Genome Architecture and Gene Regulation) is seeking a Computational Scientist and a Postdoctoral Fellow. Contact Dr. Miriam Konkel (mkonkel@clemson.edu) for details.
  • Project 4 (Genomic Prediction of Human Disease) is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow. Contact Dr. Fabio Morgante (fabiom@clemson.edu) for details.
