Post-Doctoral Positions in
Computational Molecular Evolution and Bioinformatics
(online posting at www.molevol.org/camel)
Qualified individuals are invited to apply for two post-doctoral
positions at CARB *. The successful candidates will contribute to a
3-year NIH-funded project to i) develop a software system to automate
analysis of the evolution of sequence features in families of
protein-coding genes; and ii) use this system to test the role of
evolutionary factors thought to account for the distribution of
spliceosomal introns in eukaryotic genomes.
Applicants must have: a Ph.D. in a relevant field, skill in computer
programming, and 2 years experience in computer-based research (e.g.,
biooinformatics, statistical data analysis, simulation, phylogenetic
inference). Experience in any of the following areas would be
especially useful: development of new or improved methods of data
analysis; development of bioinformatics "infrastructure" (e.g., code
libraries, workbenches, analysis servers); design and implementation
of biological or biomedical databases. The positions are renewable
one-year appointments (with probable renewal for 3 years), with a
starting date in the first half of 2003, and with a yearly salary of
30-36K,depending on experience.
To apply, send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and contact
information for three personal references to the address below.
Questions should be directed to arlin at carb.nist.gov. Review
of applications will begin Dec. 1 and continue until the positions
