Post-doctoral opportunities in the laboratory of Dr. Atul Butte at UCSF
The Bakar Institute of Computational Health Sciences (BCHSI) is seeking highly motivated investigators to develop and study novel approaches in translational bioinformatics, or the application of analytic and interpretive methods to optimize the transformation of genome-scale data of many types into proactive, predictive, preventative, and participatory health.
Post-doctoral fellowships are fully funded for up to 3 years.
Ideal candidates will have an M.D. and/or Ph.D. with a strong background in bioinformatics, computational biology, biostatistics, and genomics, and a great publication record.
Strong problem-solving skills, creative thinking, and the ability to build new software tools as needed are required. Applicants must possess good communication skills and be fluent in both spoken and written English. A background in molecular biology or medicine or pharmacology will be a strong plus. Prior experience with genetic, microarray, drug, or clinical databases, XML, text-mining, knowledge representation, or parallel computing platforms is a plus.
