Funding for this position comes from the John and Daria Barry Foundation. The annual salary is $50,000, plus benefits and travel funds.

At least two years of experience conducting analyses on one or more of these topics is optimal. The right candidate will be expected to prepare articles for publication in scientific journals and presentations at academic conferences, and has the expectation that she or he will be lead author on manuscripts from the collaboration. The postdoctoral research associate will report to Dr. Mark Regnerus.
