Opportunity: Post Doctoral Fellow @ J. Craig Venter Institute--San Diego, CA (US)
Submitted by Julia Lang; posted on Tuesday, April 10, 2012
J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) is looking for a Post-Doctoral Fellow to join its San Diego, CA location. The post-doc will study the evolution of antibiotic resistance in Acinetobacter baumannii, an increasingly important cause of hospital-acquired infections. The responsibilities will include in-depth analysis of comparative genome sequence data to determine the nature and rate of genome variation, including lateral gene transfer. The role of insertion sequences in genome variation will also be explored. The areas of focus will include taxonomic and functional analysis, genome comparison, recombination analysis, functional analysis of core and accessory genes, and development of rapid gene tests.

Qualified candidates will possess a Ph.D. in bioinformatics, microbiology, biochemistry, genetics, biological sciences or other disciplines providing training and experience in understanding of biology plus a strong demonstrated aptitude for computational analysis of genome sequences and comparative genomics. Programming and database experience, including scripting (Perl or Python) and SQL, is strongly preferred. Ability to perform basic microbiological and molecular biology techniques is desired.

San Diego, CA


JCVI offers an excellent working environment and a competitive benefits package.
