Postdoctoral positions in the lab of Luke O'Connor

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to join the lab of Dr. Luke Jen O’Connor at the Harvard Medical School Department of Biomedical Informatics. This position offers the opportunity to work closely with a new faculty member on fundamental questions of inheritance and disease. Possible areas of research include:

1. Comparing the genetic architecture of rare vs. common genetic variation

2. Development of methods to analyze GWAS data using graphical models

3. Applying cutting-edge methods to understand the genetic architecture of autism

4. Analysis of rare protein coding genetic association data using machine learning-derived functional features

Applicants should hold or expect to receive a Ph.D. or equivalent. Expertise in statistical genetics specifically is not required, but you should have substantial research experience in a related field.

Please send your C.V., a brief description of your research interests, and the PDF of one recent paper or preprint to Luke (
