Opportunity: Postdoctoral position in plant bioinformatics @ UT Austin -- Austin, TX (US)
Submitted by Thomas Juenger; posted on Wednesday, August 28, 2013
BACKGROUND:
The Juenger lab at the University of Texas at Austin is recruiting a bioinformatics postdoctoral position to work on NSF and DOE funded plant research. The focus of the research is to explore the genetics and genomics of adaptation in switchgrass (Panicum virgatum), a potential bioenergy crop, to drought and future climate change scenarios.

The project is a multidisciplinary effort including ecologists, physiologists, genomic scientists and modelers. The candidate will play a lead role in analyzing next-generation sequencing data including RNA-sequencing studies of gene expression responses to stress and the construction of mapping populations using a variety of genotyping methods. In addition, the candidate will have opportunities for analyzing transcriptome datasets, genomic sequence, and resequencing data of Panicum hallii, a diploid relative of agronomic switchgrass.

REQUIREMENTS:
We are open to a wide array of applicants, but individuals with solid experience and interest in the development of pipelines for the analysis of next-gen data and statistical genomics are especially encouraged to apply. We are looking for highly motivated candidates with a PhD in the life sciences, demonstrated experience in genomics or bioinformatics, excellent communication skills, and enthusiasm for scientific collaborations.

PREFERENCES:
* Experience with Unix/Linux systems, bash scripting, and command-line tools
* Proficiency in Python and/or Perl scripting languages
* Proficiency in R
* Experience with RNAseq analyses
* Experience with common bioinformatic tools (e.g., SHRiMP, BWA, GATK, SAMtools, etc.)
* Experience using High Performance Computing platforms in bioinformatic problems

LOCALE:
Austin, Texas, USA

HOW TO APPLY:
Applying candidates should email as a single PDF 1) a cover letter detailing interests and qualifications, 2) a CV listing education and relevant publications, and 3) names of three contacts that can provide letters of reference to Tom Juenger (tjuenger[at]austin.utexas.edu).
