Postdoctoral Research Associates

The Center for Evolutionary Medicine and Informatics (CEMI), one of 10 research centers in the Arizona State University’s Biodesign Institute is seeking Postdoctoral Research Associates.

Focus of CEMI: Research in the Center for Evolutionary Medicine and Informatics is at the intersection of medicine, genomics, and evolution. We use evolutionary knowledge to identify functionally important parts of genomes and to predict functional consequences of variations in populations and individuals. By pursuing integrated computer analytical (in silico) and experimental biological approaches, we are evaluating the importance of different parts of the genome and inferring the origins and propagation of genetic mutations. Our scientific programs bring together university faculty, professional scientists, and students with a commitment to discovery and technology development, to address four primary research themes.

Personal Genomics: Predicting adaptive and disease propensities of mutation in individuals

Disease origins: Tracing pathogen evolution to unravel dynamics of infections and drug resistance

Functional Proteomics: Discovering functionally important elements of genomes

Discovery Bioinformatics: Modeling, analysis, and simulations to discover patterns and test predictions
