Opportunity: BIOINFORMATICS Academic Coordinator @ University of California, Riverside -- Riverside, CA (US)
Submitted by Cathy Olson; posted on Friday, October 12, 2012
The Institute for Integrative Genome Biology (IIGB) at the University of California, Riverside invites applications for a Bioinformatics Facility Director. The position supports IIGB's bioinformatics research activities, teaching program and computing facility.

Successful candidates will join an innovative and multidisciplinary Institute for Integrative Genome Biology (IIGB) that connects theoretical and experimental researchers from different departments in Life, Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Medicine, Engineering and various campus-based Centers. The IIGB is organized around a 10,000 sq.ft. suite of Instrumentation Facilities that serve as a centralized, shared-use resource for faculty, staff and students, offering advanced tools in bioinformatics, microscopy, proteomics and genomics. Its bioinformatic component is equipped with an extensive high-performance compute (HPC) infrastructure.

The Bioinformatics Facility Director manages IIGB's computational infrastructure and supervises its bioinformatics staff, including an HPC/Linux systems administrator, one or more programmers and students. The incumbent will be required to provide data analysis support to collaborative research activities and make available findings through presentations and contribute as team member to scientific publications as well as participate in the preparation of joint grant applications and reports. The teaching expectations include the development of a state-of-the-art workshop program on next generation sequence data analysis and programming. Participation in collaborative equipment grants will be another core responsibility to secure future growth of the facility's computing resources.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. from a recognized university in bioinformatics; or combined degrees in computer science and a biological science; or a degree in either computer science combined with relevant experience in biological science; or a degree in a biological science combined with relevant experience in computer science. The successful candidate will have professional hands-on experience with large-scale data analysis, scientific data programming and high-performance computing. A strong publication record of bioinformatics research in collaboration with experimental biologists is expected. Another requirement is several years of professional experience with common programming languages/environments. This includes at least one statistical programming environment (preferentially R), one or more general-purpose scripting languages (e.g. Python, Perl or Ruby), experience with web development frameworks and relational database design/administration. Several years of computational research experience using HPC systems will be beneficial. The incumbent should also have experience with the analysis of modern biological data sets, such as microarrays, next generation sequence data (e.g. genotyping, RNA profiling, de novo assemblies), phylogenetics and/or molecular dynamics simulations.
