The Virginia Bioinformatics Institute (VBI) at Virginia Tech invites
applications for a Nucleotide Metabolism Modeler Postdoctoral Associate to
work in the research group of Dr. David C. Samuels on a project to study
the diseases caused by defects in this metabolism in mitochondria. This
position will involve further development of the existing simulation,
interaction with lab-based collaborators and supervision of one or two
graduate students. For an example of the simulation, see our papers in Am.
J Physiol. Cell Physiol., vol 288, pp 989-1002, 2005 and in Biochem. J.
vol 392, pp 363-373, 2005.

The successful candidate must have a PhD in a biological, mathematical or
computational field; experience in biochemical or cell biology modeling;
demonstrated creativity, independence, high motivation, and good
communication skills, demonstrated experience in developing publications
in peer reviewed high impact scientific journals based on individual
research; and possess strong work habits and the ability to work
independently as well as with research group. Preferences will be given to
candidates having knowledge or experience with Mathematica, Systems
Biology Markup Language (SBML), or an equivalent modeling or simulation
system; or knowledge of mitochondrial biology.

Interested candidates should submit a letter of interest and CV upon
applying through www.jobs.vt.edu searching by posting number 061331.
Review of applications will begin for this position on January 15, 2007.
