The Systems Genetics laboratory of Dr. Mete Civelek (​www.civeleklab.org ​) located at the Center for Public Health Genomics and Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Virginia is looking for a Research Scientist. The successful candidate will work on dissecting pathways which lead to increased susceptibility to cardio-metabolic disorders. We use genetics, molecular biology, and bioinformatics to understand how genomic loci associated with cardiometabolic traits function at the molecular level and as part of a network of other genes to regulate vascular wall cells. The work is done using data from human cells and tissues.

What we offer:

  • Training in human and mouse genetics, systems, and computational biology through interactions with lab members and workshops/courses offered on campus.
  • A stimulating environment with freedom to develop new research directions.
  • Regular opportunities to interact with other scientists at the University of Virginia at the Cardiovascular Research Center and Center for Public Health Genomics meetings.
  • Supportive mentorship for multi-faceted career development and opportunities tailored towards individual career goals.
  • A research team consisting of diverse group of trainees at the postdoctoral, doctoral, and undergraduate level.
  • University-wide resources for individuals with families and individuals underrepresented in science and engineering (https://graddiversity.virginia.edu/)
  • A department located in Charlottesville, situated at the foothills of Blue Ridge Mountains, with easy access to Shenandoah National Park, Richmond, and Washington D.C. with excellent cost of living.

What we’re looking for:

  • Enthusiastic and ambitious individual with a strong interest in our research and laboratory environment.
  • Strong background in systems biology to complement the lab members’ existing expertise and a desired experience in cardiovascular systems genetics.
  • Willingness to learn new computational approaches and designing projects independently.
  • Eagerness to apply for postdoctoral grants and to take advantage of other career development opportunities.
  • Interest in working with junior lab members and undergraduates.
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills.  

Application materials

  • Cover letter outlining relevant expertise and scientific interests
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Contact information for three references

Minimum Requirements:

PhD and at least 5 years of postdoctoral research experience.

To apply please visit UVA job board https://uva.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/UVAJobs , and search for "R0029289" Complete the application and attach the required documents.


COVID Vaccination Requirement
 

The University of Virginia expects all current and new employees (UVA Health System and Academic), to be vaccinated against COVID-19. 
 
If hired to work within the University Health System, you will be required to provide proof of vaccination or be willing to receive the vaccination. Employees may request a medical or religious exemption from vaccination.
 
If hired to work on the Academic side of the University, excluding the School of Medicine, School of Nursing, UPG, and the Health Systems Library, you will be required to provide proof of vaccination or be willing to submit to mandatory, weekly prevalence testing. Employees that are working 100% remotely will not be subject to weekly prevalence testing; however, if the employee works on UVA Grounds (including the Medical Center) even intermittently, then they are required to be tested for COVID-19 once per week on an indefinite basis and follow masking mandates. 
 
NOTE: Some medical and safety-sensitive positions require vaccination and are not eligible for an exemption.  For more information on how the vaccination and testing requirements will apply to you at your work location, see the UVA New Hire Vaccination Requirements webpage. 

The University of Virginia, i ncluding the UVA Health System which represents the UVA Medical Center, Schools of Medicine and Nursing, UVA Physician’s Group and the Claude Moore Health Sciences Library, are fundamentally committed to the diversity of our faculty and staff.  We believe diversity is excellence expressing itself through every person's perspectives and lived experiences.  We are equal opportunity and affirmative action employers. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, color, disability, gender identity or expression, marital status, national or ethnic origin, political affiliation, race, religion, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, veteran status, and family medical or genetic information.
