Bioinformatics - postdoctoral and permanent positions
The Center for Genomics, Proteomics and Bioinformatics, the
FlyBase genome database, and the Department of Biology -- Indiana
University, Bloomington -- have several job openings in
bioinformatics and information technology. Candidates may also be
eligible for joint appointments with the new School of
Informatics. We are seeking individuals whose preparation and
interests match one or more of the following descriptions: (a)
teacher of bioinformatics at the graduate level; (b) software,
database, and information systems engineering for bioinformatics;
(c) UNIX administration and department computer management.
These tasks need not describe distinct appointments; job
descriptions can be tailored, within limits, to meet individual
interests; for example, a postdoctoral appointee may teach 1/4
time while devoting the remaining 3/4 of his/her time to research
activities or system administration. Teaching appointments will
be considered postdoctoral and will be for a period of 2 - 3
years. Non-teaching appointments may be to permanent positions.
Starting salaries will be negotiated depending on a candidate's
skills and experience, but they will be highly competitive.
Bioinformatics projects at IU include development of public genome
databases, microarray gene expression analyses, gene sequence analysis
including GCG software, phylogenetic analyses, and biology
IU is in picturesque hill country of southern Indiana, with several
nearby parks and a federal wilderness area. The city (pop. ~75,000)

living is low.
Successful candidates will join an active and growing research community
in life sciences and informatics, a community that provides outstanding
opportunities for career development and advancement. See
