Seeking a postdoctoral associate to join in work on genomics and
molecular evolution. Ideally such a person would have a background in
both computer science/programming and molecular biology. The area of
work is the molecular biology of Escherichia coli and the field of
genomics. Focus is on the analysis of newly available sequences of all
genomes from the point of view of predicting functions of the gene
products and also from the point of view of the mechanisms of molecular
evolution of all proteins of life. We are developing new automated
approaches to comparative protein sequence analysis with emphasis on
evolutionary relationships. There is a great deal of information residing
in genomic sequences that is not presently being extracted using
currently available tools.
The work is carried out at the Bay-Paul Center for Comparative Biology
and Molecular Evolution, Marine Biological Laboratory. The institution is
in Woods Hole, MA, a small town with 6 scientific institutions, located
on the southern coast of Massachusetts, 75 miles south of Boston.
Kindly send resume by post to Human Resources, MBL, 7 MBL St, Woods Hole,
MA 02540 or by email to resume at mbl.edu.
