POST-DOCTORAL POSITIONS IN BIOINFORMATICS AND COMPUTATIONAL GENOMICS
		       UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA

POST-DOCTORAL positions in Bioinformatics and Computational Genomics are
available at the University of Pennsylvania through a National Science
Foundation Research Training Grant in Computational Biology and as part
of the recently established Center for Bioinformatics.  Areas of
interest include but are not limited to:

Development of advanced technology for database evolution,
transformation and integration.

Data mining and knowledge discovery in biology particularly as applied
to distributed systems.

Graphical user interfaces and scientific visualization of biological
information.

Knowledge based systems for high throughput sequence and functional
analysis.

Computational analysis of signaling pathways and genetic networks
especially in eukaryotic systems.

Applicants should have a PhD or equivalent with a background in
molecular biology, computer and information science, mathematics,
statistics or any of the physical sciences.  As part of the program in
Computational Biology, Computational Genomics, and Bioinformatics,
advanced interdisciplinary training is available to exceptional
candidates who seek to expand their skill set.  The program provides
core training in molecular biology and genetics, computer science and
engineering, and mathematical statistical modelling so that important
biological problems can be addressed effectively through a collaborative
effort between researchers in these different fields.  Advanced training
draws on the expertise of the faculty, and includes both advanced
seminars and laboratory research opportunities.
