    Opportunity: Postdoctoral Position in Microbial Bioinformatics Software Engineering @ Proksee -- University of Manitoba -- Winnipeg, MB, Canada
    Submitted by Gary Van Domselaar; posted on Monday, July 15, 2019



    The Department of Medical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases in the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Manitoba, in conjunction with Canada's National Microbiology Laboratory (NML), invites applications for a Post-Doctoral Research Associate position for up to three years in the Van Domselaar Lab for Bioinformatics. The project will focus on the development of Proksee, expert system for bacterial genome assembly, annotation, visualization, and analysis.

    For more information:[...]depth


    Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Bioinformatics, Genomics, Computer Science, or a closely related field at the time of hiring. Strong programming skills are essential. Practical experience with next-generation sequencing data analysis, statistics, and solid knowledge of microbial genomics is highly desirable.


    Preference will be given to self-motivated candidates with evidence of publications, excellent communication skills, an ability to work well in a team environment, and strong interest in software engineering.


    The NML represents Canada's main infectious disease public health lab with responsibility for reference lab-based surveillance for infectious diseases, emergency outbreak preparedness and response, training, and research and development. The NML is Canada's only Level 4 Biosafety Laboratory in Canada, and only one of a handful around the world. In modernizing Canada's surveillance and response framework, the NML has and made heavy commitments to transition Canada's public health system to incorporate genomics technologies across all of its science programs. These investments include over $10 million in high performance computing, and nearly two dozen high throughput sequencing instruments, including short-read and long-read technologies, making it one of the largest generators of microbial genomics data in the world. The Van Domselaar Lab for Bioinformatics at the NML is regarded as one of the top public health bioinformatics labs in the world.


    To apply, please submit a CV, a research statement describing accomplishments and current interests, and a list of three references to gary.vandomselaar[at]


    Review of applications will begin on August 1, 2019 and continue until the position is filled.


    Successful applicants must be eligible to obtain a Canadian Secret (Level II) security clearance. Thus, preference is given to Canadian citizens / permanent residents having resided in Canada for over ten years and have no criminal convictions.
