Research Scientists and Postdoctoral Fellows
We are delighted to announce several research and visiting positions in
Computational Biology and Bioinformatics at Boston University.
Boston University has an established tradition in computational
approaches to biology, and BU programs in this area include several
researchers such as Charles DeLisi who recentlly received the Presidential
Medal of Honor for initiating the Human Genome Project,
Charles Cantor, Jim Collins, Simon Kasif, Temple Smith, Sandor Vajda,
Zhiping Weng, Tim Gardner as well as several associated faculty such as Rich Roberts,
and Stan Letovsky We have active collaborations with The
Institute for Genomic Research, Johns Hopkins University, The Harvard/MIT CHIP
program, MIT Genome Center and local industry.
The BME department where the laboratory is housed is ranked number seven in the
US (tied with MIT).
Boston University has established one of the first Ph.D. programs in
Bioinformatics (see http://bioinformatics.bu.edu).
The program now enters its third year and has several research
centers in related areas where students and faculty conduct research on a
variety of topics in genomics, proteomics, gene regulation,
genetic switches, computational biology and bioinformatics.
A new DNA chip manufacturing facility is built in collaboration with
several groups on campus.
A number of biotechnology start-up companies were recently spinned-off
based on innovative ideas developed at Boston University.
We are seeking to fill several postdoctoral research positions at various
levels (research scientist, senior postdoctoral fellow, postdoctoral
fellow). The researchers will conduct directed and independent research
in computational genomics, bioinformatics, computational biology,
functional genomics and comparative genomics.
Salaries will be determined based on qualifications.
High-quality applicants with background in computation and biology are
particularly encouraged to apply.
We will consider unusually strong applications from researchers seeking to
enter bioinformatics from other fields such as physics, computer science,
learning, mathematics or life sciences.
We also welcome applications for graduate study in bioinformatics,
computational biology and computational genomics.
