    Opportuntity: Post-Doctoral Research Associate positions available in Computational Genomics @ West Virginia University -- Morgantown, WV (US)
    Submitted by Stephen DiFazio; posted on Sunday, February 23, 2014

    BACKGROUND

    Two 2-year postdoctoral positions are available immediately to conduct bioinformatic analyses. Opportunities are available in 1) an NSF-funded project to study the genetic architecture of tillering in sorghum, as well as 2) a USDA-funded project to study heterosis in Populus.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    For the sorghum project, the researcher will participate in the analysis of fully sequenced sorghum recombinant inbred lines (RILs) and in RNA-seq analysis from multiple tissues to investigate the structural and functional evolution of tillering in panicoid grasses. This position is based in the lab of Dr. Jennifer Hawkins (hawkins.bio.wvu.edu). The Populus project will involve design and analysis of assays for large-scale structural polymorphisms. This position is based in the lab of Dr. Stephen DiFazio (www.as.wvu.edu/~sdifazio).

    REQUIREMENTS

    A PhD in bioinformatics, computer science, genetics or other relevant topic; a strong background in statistics; proficient in the Linux environment and one or more scripting languages; experience with the analysis of large biological data sets.

    PREFERENCES

    Experience with Next Generation Sequencing data.

    LOCALE

    Department of Biology, West Virginia University, Morgantown, West Virginia. biology.wvu.edu/jobs[...]ntown

    COMPENSATION

    Salary will be commensurate with appropriate experience and the position includes health and retirement benefits (hr.research.wvu.edu/benefits). West Virginia University is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer.

    HOW TO APPLY

    Individuals interested in the position should send (1) a cover letter summarizing their research interests and expertise relevant to the project (2) a Curriculum Vitae, and (3) the names and contact information of at least three people who can provide recommendations. The application should be sent as a single pdf file to Dr. Hawkins (Jennifer.hawkins[at]mail.wvu.edu).
