Opportunity: Research Assistant in COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY @ The Hamner Institutes -- Durham, NC (US)
Submitted by Kristin Overman; posted on Monday, January 21, 2013
BACKGROUND:
The Hamner Institutes for Health Sciences is looking to expand its computational biology expertise by hiring a motivated, self-driven individual for a research assistant/associate position.

We are developing computational models to better understand how xenobiotic compounds affect cellular machinery and ultimately, the health of an individual. We believe that the implementation of computational and cell-based models for toxicity testing will yield faster, more relevant results and reduce the chemical safety industry's dependence on traditional animal-based testing. Our interdisciplinary team -- comprised of chemists, engineers, molecular biologists, and computational biologists -- specializes in moving quickly between wet-lab experiments and computational models, with an aim to develop a mechanistic understanding of the response of biological systems to chemical perturbations. Our work is used by partners in the chemical industry and regulatory communities to reduce the adverse impact of chemicals on health and the environment.

RESPONSIBILITIES:
This position entails the development and application of novel computational models that incorporate data from a number of large-scale experimental studies. The candidate will work closely with experimental biologists to develop and test computational models of the cellular response to chemical perturbation.

REQUIREMENTS:
A Bachelor's degree is required and an M.S. is desirable. Preferred areas of study include systems biology, computer science, engineering, physics, molecular biology, or related field with a rigorous foundation in applied and quantitative science. Experience with at least one programming or scripting language is required and experience with computational research is preferred. Experience working with high-throughput biological data (either computationally or experimentally) is preferred but not strictly required. Strong communication skills and a willingness to collaborate is a must.

HOW TO APPLY:
Qualified candidates need to submit their resume and General Application, which can be found at [link], to koverman[at]thehamner.org or fax to 919-558-1430. Please refer to the "Computational Research Assistant" position.

POLICY:
"Equal Opportunity / Affirmative Action Employer -- m/f/d/v"
