Postdoctoral fellowships at the interface of applied mathematics and human genetics
deCODE Genetics is searching for highly-qualified and motivated post-doctoral fellows in the fields of Computer Science, Mathematics, Biostatistics, Bioinformatics, Artificial Intelligence, Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Statistical Genetics. This is a rare opportunity to conduct cutting-edge human population genetics research in an environment that combines the benefits of academia and industry. Post-doctoral fellows will be mentored by Dr. Kári Stefánsson and other deCODE scientific leaders. Opportunities will be available to initiate and/or participate in publications in highly-regarded journals. The tenure for these competitive fellowships is 3-years with the option to renew for an additional year. Current graduates and graduate students nearing completion of their doctoral studies are welcome to apply. Immigration and relocation assistance will be provided.

deCODE Genetics, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Amgen, is a global leader in analyzing and understanding the human genome. Under the leadership of founder and CEO Dr. Kári Stefánsson, deCODE has used its unique expertise and population resources to discover key genetic risk factors for dozens of common diseases ranging from cardiovascular disease to cancer. deCODE has collected one of the world’s largest integrated datasets on genetic variation, WGS, RNA, proteomics and associated large-scale phenotypic data. Prior to founding deCODE, Dr. Stefánsson held professorship and leadership positions at several institutions including Harvard University. He and several deCODE researchers are current faculty at the University of Iceland. In 2019, Dr. Stefánsson was elected as a foreign associate of the US National Academy of Sciences.
