    Opportunity: BIOINFORMATICS Postdoctoral Fellow @ Vanderbilt University Medical Center--Nashville, TN (US)
    Submitted by Zhongming Zhao; posted on Saturday, February 25, 2012



    A postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Zhongming Zhao's Bioinformatics and Systems Medicine Laboratory (BSML, at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. The successful candidate is expected to join an established bioinformatics team, which is currently comprised of 9 members, including a research instructor, several postdocs in bioinformatics, a bioinformatics engineer, a student, and a program coordinator. The ongoing projects in our group use data generated from platforms such as next generation sequencing (Illumina, 454, SOLiD) and microarrays (gene expression, GWAS, microRNA, CNVs, and methylation) to study cancer, neuropsychiatric disorders, or other complex diseases using bioinformatics and systems biology approaches. Integrative genomics approaches are often applied. Funding is available to support this position for up to three years. Salary is based on NIH standard, or exceeds that for the candidates based on qualification. The candidate will have the opportunity to access many high throughput datasets and to interact with the investigators in Vanderbilt Medical Center and Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center.

    Vanderbilt's Department of Biomedical Informatics is the largest academic department of biomedical informatics in the country, with more than 68 faculty members, a NIH supported graduate training program, and a portfolio of research and development projects that spans from computational biology and bioinformatics applied to the understanding of biological molecules, through advanced clinical information systems that care for hundreds of thousands of patients at Vanderbilt, to regional health information projects that span many states. More information about the department can be found at


    Post-doctoral research in bioinformatics and genomics.


    The qualified candidates should be highly motivated in research and have a Ph.D. in bioinformatics, computational biology, molecular biology, or related field upon the job start date. The successful candidate should have some experience in analyzing high-throughput genomic data and proved skills in at least one programming language (Perl, Java, or C/C++). Good understanding of molecular biology and familiarity with biostatistics are desirable. For more information, please visit our web site
