Positions are available to explore the association of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) variation to nuclear DNA ‘omics in cardiovascular disease. Research projects can comprise one of two main streams towards uncovering molecular mechanisms and pathways that may modify risk for disease. Project Stream 1: Genome analysis of largescale genomic, methylomic and transcriptomic datasets. Must have interest in, or experience with, relevant coding languages. Project Stream 2: Developing and characterizing cell culture models of mtDNA variation. Experience with tissue culture or genome editing is ideal.
