Project Scientist Position, Open ranks
University of California, Irvine

The laboratory of Prof. Xiaohui Xie in the School of Information and Computer Sciences and the Institute for Genomics and Bioinformatics anticipates a research position available in the areas of bioinformatics, computational biology and genomics, with a particular emphasis on bioinformatics and next-generation sequencing analysis. The candidate will participate in several genomics and sequence analysis projects in collaboration with other groups at UCI. The candidate must be thoroughly familiar with next-generation sequencing analysis, statistical analysis of biological data, and basic machine learning tools. The position requires good overall knowledge of algorithms, and of molecular and systems biology. Good understanding of statistics, probabilistic methods, and machine learning is also a requirement. Outstanding programming and software engineering skills are essential, especially Java, Perl, Python, and Matlab.

Applicants must have earned a Ph.D. in Bioinformatics, Computer Science, or a closely related discipline.

Salary is commensurate with training and experience. The initial appointment will be for a year, with extension to further years dependent in part on the availability of extra-mural funding.

Interested applicants should respond no later than the closing date of October 4, 2012 by forwarding a cover letter, Curriculum Vitae, and the names of three references to:
