RESEARCH FELLOW POSITION/ PROGRAMMER IN SYSTEMS BIOLOGY/COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY
BETH ISRAEL DEACONESS MEDICAL CENTER/HARVARD MEDICAL SCHOOL
The BIDMC Genomic, Proteomics, Bioinformatics and Systems Biology Center is recruiting a research fellow/programmer in Systems Biology/Computational Biology. The center has an interdisciplinary team of highly experienced investigators for bioinformatics, genomics, proteomics and systems biology. The job provides opportunities to interested candidates for performing excellent research with specific focus on using informatics, statistical, and computational techniques to solve disease biology problems through biomarker discovery, drug discovery, and clinical research translations. We are looking for a researcher to join our team for development of improved methods for analysis of Next-generation sequencing data and Systems Biology approaches for integration of diverse genome level datasets (e.g. Transcriptome, Epigenome, Proteome, Metabolome).
Successful candidates should hold a MD, MD/PhD, PhD or MS in Computational Biology/ Bioinformatics/ Computer Science/ Biochemistry/ Mathematics/ Engineering/ Physics or Statistics. The position requires a strong background in algorithms and statistics, data management and mining, and machine learning. The candidate should have prior experience of work in systems biology and its stochastic computing, integrative modeling (using strong Bayesian network, HMM, etc.) and computational aspects. Candidates with prior experience in next generation sequencing data analysis are desirable. Candidates should have excellent programming skills and experience in C/ C++/ Java/ Perl/ Python and R. Highly motivated and creative candidates with excellent record of publications in peer-reviewed journals are encouraged to apply. The candidate is expected to have outstanding personal initiative and be able to work effectively as part of a team. The applications received by December 22, 2012 will be given full consideration.
HOW TO APPLY:
Candidates who are willing to work in an exciting environment on the cutting edge of systems biology, genomics, proteomics and translational medicine are encouraged to apply. Please send a CV, a brief description of previous research and the names of three references to the address below.
