Opportunity: BIOINFORMATICIANS -- Research & Edcuation @ University of Texas at Austin -- Austin, TX (US)
Submitted by Scott Hunicke-Smith; posted on Thursday, August 23, 2012
BACKGROUND:
The University of Texas at Austin seeks two bioinformaticians with broad experience to join their new Bioinformatics Team (BioITeam). You will participate directly in diverse grant-funded research projects in neurobiology, evolutionary biology, microbiology, human genetics and disease, systems and synthetic biology. You will also have the opportunity to train students, faculty and other staff and contribute to university-wide bioinformatics infrastructure development.

One position will be focused generally around projects in non-model systems, while the other focuses on variant analysis and quantitative analysis (e.g. differential expression) in model systems.

The BioITeam is transforming bioinformatic research and education at UT. Typical research assignments last 6 to 12 months; you'll be managing two or three projects in parallel with different research groups. You have access to not one but two and soon three Top-500 supercomputing clusters at the Texas Advanced Computing Center. You'll never be resource constrained in this thriving environment. Top quality candidates with good breadth as well as significant depth in a few areas are preferred.

RESPONSIBILITIES:
See detailed web postings:
* The de novo-oriented position is under the Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. To learn more and apply, visit: [link]

* The variant & quantitative analysis position is under the Center for Systems and Synthetic Biology. To learn more and apply, visit: [link]

REQUIREMENTS:
Ph.D. degree with major coursework in the field of assignment and four years of related experience, or master's degree and six years of related experience. Demonstrated mastery of UNIX/Linux and proficiency with some combination of Perl, Python, Java/J2EE, C, C++ and extensive knowledge of relational databases, schemas, and SQL queries. Two or more years experience with analysis of next-generation DNA sequence analysis including quantitative analysis. Equivalent combination of relevant education and experience may be substituted as appropriate.

PREFERENCES:
Ph.D. or earned doctorate degree in bioinformatics, computational biology or closely related field, or Masters degree with equivalent experience. Additional background in genome assembly, annotation, and biological databases preferred. Demonstrated technical expertise in general area of genome assembly. Ability to define problems, design studies to resolve problems, and draw valid conclusions. Ability to interpret results and analyses to ensure validity of conclusions. Strong communication, writing and presentation skills.

LOCALE:
Austin, TX

COMPENSATION:
Open ($65,000/yr or more)
