<x-charset Windows-1252>POSTDOCTORAL POSITION
Whole genome analysis of gene expression in Arabidopsis using
massively parallel signature sequencing (MPSS).
Position and responsibilities: Analyze whole-genome transcriptional
data of Arabidopsis from MPSS experiments; analyses will involve
comparisons relative to other expression data, microarray data, and
genomic sequence information. May involve laboratory work to confirm
findings. Project is currently underway, and data/database can be
reviewed at http://mpss.ucdavis.edu.
Qualifications: Requires Ph.D. in genetics, bioinformatics, molecular
biology, or related area. Candidate should be interested in learning
new methods of gene expression analysis and genome analysis. The
candidate should enjoy reading and discussing current literature on
genome analysis, gene expression, and bioinformatics
techniques/approaches. The ability and interest to pursue new methods
and to work closely with laboratory-based scientists is essential.
The position requires working closely with other scientists and
Preferred Qualifications: The most competitive applicant will have
experience with both plant molecular biology and bioinformatics.
Familiarity with DNA/protein sequence analysis, including database
similarity searches, sequence alignments, motif and evolutionary
analysis is essential. Familiarity with UNIX, PHP (or Perl), and SQL
is desirable. Candidates should have either strong skills in
bioinformatics and a good background in molecular biology, or strong
skills in molecular biology and a good background in bioinformatics.
Salary depends on qualifications and experience. Start date is
negotiable, but sooner is better than later. Initial contract is for
one year. Review of applications begins on November 1, and continues
until position is filled. Send curriculum vitae, brief statement of
research interests and names of three references to the address
below. Email is preferable.
