By the sound of your background, I doubt very much you will have a 
problem getting an interesting position here in the US. If you are 
interested in getting an industrial position, you might also want to 
think about getting an academic biocomputing position in a 'hot' area, 
such as the NorthEastern seaboard, the Carolinas, San Francisco, San Diego
etc. This has the advantage of giving you some time to check out local 
biocomputing needs in biotechs and also the chance to network.
