The Integrative Mental Health Lab (IMHL) at Stanford University is hiring 1-2 postdocs/analysts, to start work as early as August 2021.  Our primary aim is to make genetic discoveries, and to translate those findings into improved treatments for psychiatric disorders.  We seek motivated individuals, ideally with strong computational backgrounds (e.g. degree in mathematics, statistics, computer programing). Statistical genetics experience is preferred, but interested applicants are encouraged to apply regardless of past training experiences.  Major projects in the lab include translational neuroscience projects designed to derive biological meaning from large-scale genomic findings, projects focused on hormone effects on mental health (leveraging genomic tools), and studies using data from postmortem tissue and single cell/nucleus assays.  Trainee-led projects are also encouraged, and there are ample opportunities for growth in the lab and at Stanford.  We have world class collaborations locally, nationally, and abroad to support an exciting and rich training experience.  A desire to work with others and collaborative nature will fit best in the lab.  Please reach out if you have any questions.  We look forward to meeting you!
