BIOINFORMATICS POSITION

Applicants are invited to apply for a bioinformatics position at the 
PLANT GENE EXPRESSION CENTER of the United States Department of 
Agriculture (USDA), Agriculture Research Service (ARS) and University 
of California, Berkeley. The successful candidate is expected to 
build an independent research program in bioinformatics that 
effectively utilizes genome sequence information. The technical 
background and computational skills to develop appropriate 
bioinformatics tools and algorithms for analysis, visualization and 
public dissemination of information derived from studies of genomes 
of agricultural importance are required. The candidate is expected to 
develop a research program that complements ongoing research at the 
PGEC and to provide leadership for ARS in plant genomics and 
bioinformatics through interactions with institutions involved in 
large-scale sequencing and functional analysis of plant genomes. The 
successful applicant will be considered for an Adjunct Faculty 
appointment in the Department of Plant and Microbial Biology, 
University of California, Berkeley.

Currently the PGEC consists of seven groups, led by Drs. Baker, 
Fletcher, Hake, McCormick, Ow, Quail and Theologis, whose research 
focuses on genetic and molecular analysis of plant processes such as 
disease resistance, stress tolerance, light signaling, reproduction 
and development. Genomic projects at the PGEC include sequencing of 
the Arabidopsis genome and ORFeome, analysis of disease resistance 
genes in Solanaceous crops, and of genes expressed in maize 
inflorescences, pollen and embryo sacs.

Candidates must be U.S. citizens. The position will be filled at the 
GS-13/14 level (Assistant/Associate Professor equivalent, salary 
commensurate with experience). For information about the position, 
see our web-site http://www.pgec.usda.gov/ or contact Dr. Sarah Hake 
maizesh at nature.berkeley.edu. USDA is an Equal Opportunity Provider 
and Employer.
