Consider a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Bioinformatics and Comparative Genomics at NHGRI
Calling all bioinformatics postdocs! A fellowship in bioinformatics and evolutionary genomics is now available at the Center for Genomics and Data Science Research, located within the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI). NHGRI is an NIH institute and sister institute of NCI.
In this position, the fellow will support Dr. Andy Baxevanis, whose research team uses comparative genomics approaches to understand how non-traditional animal models can be used to convey insights into human disease research. The fellow will develop and apply bioinformatic approaches to large-scale genomic data sets, focusing on the evolution of specific protein families and biological pathways that have putative roles in disease causation.
Candidate qualifications include, but are not limited to:
- a doctorate or equivalent degree in bioinformatics, computational biology, computer science, molecular biology, or a closely related field.
- a background in comparative genomics or evolutionary biology.
- programming skills and experience in the application of computational methods to genomic data.
Interested applicants should submit to Dr. Baxevanis a curriculum vitae, a detailed letter of interest, and the names of three potential references. Postdoctoral traineeships are not available to scientists who have more than five years of relevant research experience since the receipt of their most recent doctoral degree.
