You will be the lead data analyst with opportunities to develop novel analytics strategies and exposomics discovery tools as R packages, write publications as lead author, network with leading collaborators, perform data pre-processing and statistical analysis in epidemiological studies, and present your findings at Scientific Meetings.



As the ideal candidate, you must have a Ph.D. in metabolomics, omics data analysis, biostatistics, or related field. You must be a critical thinker and have a strong programming background in python and/or R, with a passion for writing clean, efficient code to streamline processes and workflows.
