  • Collaborate with other ICR scientists to solve complex human medical mysteries

Please apply if you have:

  • An advanced degree in biomedical sciences, with specialized knowledge in connective tissue disorders such as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders
  • Advanced knowledge of connective tissue and extracellular matrix biology
  • In-depth knowledge of and experience with modern functional genomics and molecular genetics techniques
  • Computer skills: R, Linux, ability to work with VCF files

And you'll need:
