Can you forward the following information to people who might be interested?


==Postdoctoral / Senior Scientist Positions in Computational Biology ==

Prof. Jeffrey Chuang is seeking enthusiastic, highly-skilled computational
biologists to join his lab at the new Jackson Laboratory for Genomic
Medicine. The Chuang Lab is a computational biology lab specializing in
functional genomics and molecular evolution. Our upcoming projects will
have an emphasis on cancer genetics, RNA-level regulatory processes, and
transcriptional enhancers. Hirees will have direct access to large amounts
of high-throughput functional genomic data from human and mouse model
systems and will work in close collaborations with experimental labs.

Well-suited candidates should have Ph.D. experience in computational
biology, applied math, physics, computer science, or a similar quantitative
discipline. Outstanding applicants new to computational biology will also
be considered. Strong computing (programming, large scale data analysis,
statistical inference, etc), publication, and communication skills are
essential. Applicants will be considered primarily at the postdoctoral
level, but more experienced candidates may apply for a senior scientist
position. Higher salaries will be considered for candidates with especially
advanced qualifications.

Hirees will be joining the Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine, a new
research institute dedicated to improving human health through genomic
approaches. The institute is in Farmington, CT adjacent to the University
of Connecticut Medical School and in the Hartford metropolitan area. This
institute is part of a $1.1 billion new venture between the Jackson
Laboratory (based in Bar Harbor, ME), which is one of the world's leaders
in mouse genetics, and the state of Connecticut. JAX Genomic Medicine plans
to hire 30 scientific group leaders in the next few years, half of which
are expected to be in computational biology. New hirees will have the
opportunity to join the first computational biology lab in the institute,
with concomitant opportunities to help shape the institute. The lab will be
initially based in the U-Conn. Cell and Genome Sciences building, a vibrant
center with thirty active labs, and will later move to a new building now
under construction. Hirees will also have targeted opportunities to
collaborate with groups at the Jackson Lab Bar Harbor campus and the
University of Connecticut. Hartford is a lively metropolitan area of over
one million people and is within a two hour drive of both Boston and New
York City.

Interested applicants should send a CV and a research statement to Jeffrey
Chuang at jeff.chuang at jax.org. Reference letters will be requested
