    DESCRIPTION

    Biology: Tenure-track Assistant Professor in Bioinformatics to begin August 2018 to teach at the graduate and undergraduate levels, advise students, maintain an active externally funded research program, and provide service to the institution. Teaching responsibilities may include courses in general biology, programming for the life sciences, and a new bioinformatics or genomics course for a future bioinformatics major. The departmental home of this position (Biology or Microbiology) will depend on the specific research expertise of the successful candidate.

    Required: Ph.D. in bioinformatics, computational biology, biology, microbiology, or a related field by date of appointment.

    Consideration may be given to candidates who study computational biology and genomics, proteomics or metabolomics to infer how variation in gene sequences and epigenetic status translates into the functional expression of traits; those with postdoctoral experience; teaching experience; or developing an externally funded research program.

    ABOUT US

    Together, the Departments of Biology (miamioh.edu/biology) and Microbiology (miamioh.edu/microbiology) have over 50 faculty with excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching and research. The two departments offer several undergraduate degrees in the biological sciences and a bioinformatics minor, as well as M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in biology, microbiology, and botany. Both departments also have faculty and graduate students in interdepartmental graduate degree programs in cell, molecular, and structural biology (miamioh.edu/cmsb) and ecology, evolution, and environmental biology (miamioh.edu/eeeb). Research and teaching are supported by outstanding core facilities, the Center for Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics, the Miami RedHawk High Performance Computing Cluster, the Center for Advanced Microscopy and Imaging, and a Laboratory Animal Resources Center.

    BACKGROUND

    RNA is unique among all biomolecules as it can be both information-storing and enzymatic. These features are tightly linked to its structure, in which base-pairing interactions give rise to a highly folded macromolecule. Indeed, in addition to the genetic code, which specifies the composition of proteins, we now know there is a secondary layer of information encoded in every transcript in the form of RNA structure that can regulate processes as diverse as splicing, localization, and translation efficiency. Recent genome-wide association and biochemical studies have linked multiple diseases, including cancer and neurodegenerative diseases, to changes in RNA structure. The lab is focused on developing new methodology to identify and quantify multiple RNA conformations and to use this methodology to answer fundamental and unresolved questions on 1) HIV-1 RNA structure and 2) pre-mRNA structures that control alternative splicing in neurons.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    • Develop and implement existing and new computational methods and tools for high-throughput sequencing analysis (RNA-seq, DMS-seq) of diverse data.
    • Assist with the design and development of major bioinformatics-related programming projects.
    • Write custom scripts to access databases and analyze data.
    • Write custom web tools for scientists.
    • Assist with the preparation and teaching of courses and/or demonstrations on the use of bioinformatics tools.
    • Consults scientific literature as needed.
    • Other tasks as required or assigned

    REQUIREMENTS

    • Bachelor's degree in computer science, bioinformatics or a field directly related to the work
    • Proven experience using bioinformatics to solve biologically important questions
    • Knowledge of Python
    • Excellent written and oral communication skills, strong organizational skills
