Data Analyst, Jacobs Center for Productive Youth Development, University of Zürich

The Jacobs Center for Productive Youth Development at the University of Zürich is seeking a highly motivated Data Analyst to examine connections between gene expression patterns and early life experience in a large, nationally representative dataset. You will closely collaborate with a small team of scholars who have statistical, biological, and social science expertise, helping them to answer their research questions. Questions generally concern the relationship between health, disadvantage, and gene transcription data (RNA-seq). You will work in the “literate programming” paradigm, helping answer these questions by developing reproducible, literate code, which transparently cleans, formats, analyses, and reports on the data. As such, you will have both strong coding (R or similar) and (English) report writing skills. The position will contribute to Professor Michael Shanahan’s research program at the Jacobs Center for Productive Youth at the University of Zurich.

The Jacobs Center focuses on cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research on child and youth development and includes scholars from diverse disciplines. For more information about Shanahan’s research and other team members, visit Of special interest are RNA-seq data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent and Adult Health.

The ideal candidate will have well-developed methodological and statistical skills. Masters-level training is desired. Basic familiarity with genetics and knowledge of German are assets but not necessary. The ideal candidate will also have a strong commitment to all phases of research, willingness to work in a collaborative setting, flexibility, and interest in learning new methods. Strong communication skills, team-orientation, and motivation to achieve are important. Opportunities to develop skills in the use of genetic data will be provided. International applications are encouraged.

To apply, submit (in one pdf file) (1) a cover letter that conveys research interests and relevant experiences, (2) a curriculum vitae, and (3) one or two publications, manuscripts, reports, etc. Two letters of recommendation from references should be emailed separately and directly.
