To support the work of early-career investigators pursuing research in the area of statistical genetics and data science with an emphasis on genome medicine, including, but not limited to, methodology, application, and translation of genomic prediction tools such as polygenic risk scores; human-computer interactions; or novel genomic computational approaches to therapeutic identification.
Proposed projects should be innovative, generalizable across applications, and not restricted to developing a predictive tool for a single application.
- Applicants must be undertaking full-time research during the term of the postdoctoral fellowship at a CANSSI Ontario partner university or their affiliated research institutes.
- Applicants must fulfill or have fulfilled all degree requirements for a PhD in the fields of statistics, computational biology, biostatistics, bioinformatics, computer science, epidemiology, engineering, mathematics, or other related quantitative fields between January 1, 2021 and December 31, 2023.
