Looking for a few good applicants, we have several great positions open.
See the Center for Biomedical Informatics and Biostatistics website (CB2) for official post and application instructions.
We have collaborative funding through CB2 (Yves A Lussier group) and the Center for Innovation in Brain Science (Roberta Diaz Brinton group) to conduct informatics projects in clinical and molecular neuroscience at the University of Arizona in Tucson. The two major arms kicking this off will be (1) a systems approach to energetics in the aging brain (Alzheimer's) using experimental models and (2) clinical data mining in electronic medical records. We'd love for you to bring your own ideas as well, and contribute to other projects in the lab according to your interests.
These will involve analysis of transcriptomes, omics integration (GWAS/ENCODE/major databases), big data mining, etc. We are also participants in the White House Precision Medicine Initiative and a PMI cohort recruitment center. You will have the opportunity to collaborate and bring your skills into there as well.
Ideal candidates will have evidence of prior productivity (published papers), solid programming skills (including at least R, preferably comfort in other languages as well), good communication skills (ability to independently draft a paper), and importantly - enthusiasm and the ability to work well with others. We do a lot of team science, and our goal is to maintain a strong mentorship environment.
Independent funding will make you a competitive candidate, but these are all funded positions (postdoc compensation: $50-70k DOE; professor positions higher), in a very low cost-of-living city. Visa and relocation assistance are available to qualified candidates.
