The GEMINI project(http://nusdm.comp.nus.edu.sg/) is a cross
faculty project between the School of Computing and the Faculty of
Medicine at the National University of Singapore(NUS). This
project involves:

1. Development of advance data mining techniques for analyzing
high throughput gene expression datasets.

2. Designing of microarray experiments to be performed on tissue
samples from the NUS/NUH Tissues Repository so as to facilitate
the construction of pathways that are involved in the development
of cancer tissues.

3. Building of a system that make use of the techniques developed
in (1) to support (2).

The project currently have a position for a postdoc fellow and a
research assistant. The requirement for these positions are as
follow:

1)Postdoc Fellow

Candidate must have a relevant Phd. degree in Computer Science,
Computational Biology or Bioinformatics. He/She must be a
proficient programmer and is familiar with various aspect of
biological pathway analysis and modelling. Familiarity with
statistical modelling tools like Bayesian Network will be added
bonus. Salary for this position varies from S$60,000 to S$80,000
depending on qualification. Initial appointment is for one year
with possible extension for another year.

2)Research Assistant
--------------------
