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 (http://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 (http://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. [link]

COMPENSATION:
Salary will be commensurate with appropriate experience and the position includes health and retirement benefits (http://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).
