Arabidopsis Genome Project Postdoctoral Position Available

A postdoctoral position is available in the Arabidopsis genome sequencing
group at TIGR starting immediately.  The sequencing group is part of the
worldwide coordinated effort to sequence the entire Arabidopsis genome.
Our strategy uses BAC clones as sources of DNA for a random shotgun cloning
and sequencing approach.  We are also developing BAC end sequencing as a
technique to rapidly identify minimally overlapping clones.  The successful
candidate will gain experience in many stages of the project such as
subclone library construction, high throughput sequencing methods, closure
strategies, and sequence analysis.  He/she will also work closely with
members of the Bioinformatics group in the development and refinement of
annotation tools, and work actively in annotating new sequence as it is
produced using predictive algorithms and homology with the Arabidopsis EST
assemblies and other databases to identify potential genes.  Experience
with molecular biology essential, and interest in bioinformatics
advantageous.

The Institute for Genomic Research, TIGR, is a not-for-profit research
institute founded in 1992 and has interests in structural, functional, and
comparative analysis of genomes and gene products in viruses, eubacteria,
pathogenic bacteria, archaea, and eukaryotes, both plant and animal.  The
Institute's campus is located in Rockville, MD, in the greater Washington,
D.C. metropolitan area, and is close to the National Institutes of Health,
Johns Hopkins University, The University of Maryland, and other research
institutes and biotechnology companies.
