    The Center for Pediatric Cancer Systems Biology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School (UTSW) will use a systems biology approach to address fundamental questions on the metastatic cascade in Ewing sarcoma, as paradigm for pediatric cancer.

    This center brings together experts in the fields of pediatric oncology and genetic model organisms (James Amatruda), pathology (Stephen Skapek), single-cell genomics (Gary Hon), quantitative live-cell imaging (Gaudenz Danuser) and systems biology (Yang Xie) to remove the technical barriers to understanding the metastatic cascade within pediatric cancers.


    We are seeking applicants for an integrated and dynamic postdoctoral training program to develop new paradigms in single-cell cancer functional genomics.


    Specifically, we are seeking individuals with significant experience in genomics and bioinformatics, particularly statistical modeling and machine learning. We especially value motivated, creative, adventurous, and collaborative individuals. We are firmly committed to training these scientists to succeed as future independent investigators.


    Post-doctoral position at NIH payscale.


    To apply, please submit a CV, a brief statement of interests / accomplishments, and a list of references to Gary.Hon[at] and Yang.Xie[at] .


    The Duke Human Vaccine Institute and the Duke Center for HIV/AIDS Vaccine Immunology & Immunogen Discovery (CHAVI-ID), providing national and international leadership in the fight against major infectious diseases such as HIV, influenza, and malaria, are currently recruiting for a highly motivated individual to join our team. The Duke Human Vaccine Institute (DHVI) is an interdisciplinary, interdepartmental institute dedicated to the study of basic and translational science required to understand host-pathogen interactions that can be translated to vaccines against human diseases. DHVI comprises a team of highly interactive investigators that have expertise in virology, immunology, computational biology, molecular biology, microbiology and animal models.


    We are seeking a candidate for the position of bioinformatician with a background in computational structural biology or sequence analysis or both. The computational structural work performed will involve structural modeling and analysis of antibody-antigen interactions, molecular simulation, as well as the implementation of computational protein design algorithms for improving vaccine immunogen designs. The sequence analysis-based work performed by the bioinformatician will involve developing and implementing innovative computational approaches for the analysis of large sequence datasets generated by next generation sequencing platforms, assistance in the creation of a software pipeline and database system for analyzing and cataloging antibody sequences as well as designing and implementing a high-performance computing pipeline for analyzing large-scale transcriptomics.


    The position requires a Master's degree in bioinformatics, computer science, computational biology, or a related field. A PhD is a plus. Highly proficient programming skills are required. A minimum of five years relevant experience is required including experience in a UNIX/Linux environment, the development of computational methods and programs for the analysis of genomic and/or structural data, web-based bioinformatics tools, public domain biological databases and software tools for sequence and structural analysis. Experience with Perl or Python, R or MATLAB, web design, database systems, high performance computing environments, and statistics is also desired. Proficiency in C++ programming is highly preferred.


    Candidates should apply to requisition 401326486 on the Duke employment website and send a cover letter and current CV to:

    Duke Human Vaccine Institute

    The Repositive platform is an online portal indexing multiple human genomic databases, and currently the largest portal of its kind in the world. By indexing the metadata from 50+ global data sources, Repositive enables almost 2 million human genomic datasets to be browsed, and using its powerful query engine, Boolean predicates and predefined filters can help connect the research community with the genomic data they need.

    Repositive is more than just a listing of data, it is also a community-driven platform with 2,000+ global users. Repositive advocates open collaboration, open access and open science and rewards users for contributing to the resource with "reputation" points and aims to show to the world just how impactful data, collaboration and further data annotation can be. Giving visibility to how your contributions are being used is an excellent way for researchers to secure grants, where traditional citations of dataset contributors are failing.

    At the center of Repositive is a belief that a collaborative community and better discoverability and accessibility of data can power research and support better diagnosis of diseases and development of treatments. It is their mission to "help researchers to help patients, faster". With most researchers only knowing of 4-5 sources of human genomic data, indexing the hundreds of data sources globally and making them cross comparable can help researchers utilize all the data which is already out there.

    The core Repositive platform is free to join, with non-users able to browse the data currently indexed here: Repositive also offers several services ( like data scouting, help guiding difficult access applications and creating bespoke data catalogues, such as their recent PDX model platform ( with AstraZeneca, Boehringer Ingelheim and Horizon Discovery.
