    Opportunity: Bioinformatician for Echinobase (#2012984) @ Carnegie Mellon University -- Pittsburgh, PA (US)
    Submitted by Kate Buckley; posted on Tuesday, July 02, 2019


    The Mellon College of Science (MCS) is home to four departments and many programs and research centers that cross disciplines. We approach scientific problems from fresh angles using creative interdisciplinary approaches while drawing on our departmental strengths in the core sciences. MCS faculty members are nationally and internationally recognized for their research in a variety of fields, including polymer science, cosmology, mathematical finance and neuroscience.

    EchinoBase is hiring a Bioinformatician to work in the lab of Veronica Hinman in the Department of Biological Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, PA). EchinoBaseis an online platform that houses genomic and transcriptomic resources of echinoderms. The mission of EchinoBase is to serve as a central database for an international community of researchers interested in understanding echinoderm biology from a genomic perspective. In this aim, EchinoBase maintains information on the organization, function and evolution of echinoderm genes. In this role, you will work alongside other EchinoBase personnel.

    The Department of Biological Sciences at CMU is the physical home of EchinoBase. Two active research labs in the department use echinoderms as model systems. This provides an excellent opportunity to interface firsthand with members of the community. As an NIH-funded community resource, EchinoBase provides an encouraging environment with many training opportunities available.
