Opportunity: Postdoctoral Fellow of Cancer BIOINFORMATICS @ Vanderbilt University--Nashville, TN (US)
Submitted by Zhongming Zhao; posted on Monday, March 12, 2012
Submitter OVERVIEW:
A postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Zhongming Zhao's Bioinformatics and Systems Medicine Laboratory (BSML, http://bioinfo.mc.vanderbilt.edu/) 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 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-Ingram Cancer Center.

More information about the department can be found at http://dbmi.mc.vanderbilt.edu/.

RESPONSIBILITIES:
Post-doctoral research in cancer bioinformatics and genomics.

REQUIREMENTS:
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.
