Join us!

We have previously recruited undergrads, grad students, post-docs, and staff interested in combining genomics and data analysis techniques to study nutrition. We have been developing a new genomic biomarker that can resolve individual food species that individuals and populations consume. We are interested in improving this biomarker, sharing it, and using it discover relationships between diet and culture, health, and the environment.

Current open job listings in our group include:

  • A technician position to perform DNA sequencing experiments, as well as optimize and automate our laboratory protocols.
  • A biostatistician position to help generate, analyze, and visualize genomic food intake data. The position will also involve architecting, maintaining and sharing reference databases of foods and bioinformatic pipelines related to genomic dietary analysis.
  • A research analyst position to  manage and design our engagement with collaborators, patients, and the public. This position offers the opportunity to carry out research projects, as well as lead outreach and education initiatives.

If you’d also like to learn more generally about our lab, please feel free to email Lawrence. Although there are no formal requirements to join the lab, a background (or at least an interest!) in genomics, nutrition, epidemiology, quantitative/computational sciences, ecology/environmental science, or the microbiome are helpful.
