Job Description

Postdoctoral positions in bioinformatics and systems biology are available in the laboratory of Maga Rowicka at the department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston (UTMB). The BMB department is among ten top NIH-funded biochemistry departments in the country. Our lab is both developing computational methods and tools for analysis of the genomic data and is experimentally testing (through collaborations) the predictions of our models.

  1. Postdoctoral fellow in computational biology/bioinformatics (code 4011). The postdoctoral fellow will develop computational and statistical methods for inferring transcriptional regulatory networks from the large-scale genomic data and will test the model predictions using in-house ChIP-chip/ChIP-seq and microarray data. We are seeking excellent candidates who are highly motivated and career-oriented. Candidates should have Ph.D. in physics, computer science, biology or a related field. Successful applicants will have excellent programming skills (C/C++, Matlab, perl/python, R). Research experience in bioinformatics is a plus.
  2. Postdoctoral fellow in computational biology/bioinformatics (code 4012). The postdoctoral fellow will develop computational methods and tools for inferring proteome dynamics from gene expression and other genomic data and will research how protein stability in vivo is determined by its sequence. We are seeking excellent candidates who are highly motivated and career-oriented. Candidates should have Ph.D. in computer science, biology, physics, chemistry or a related field. Successful applicants will have excellent programming skills (C/C++, Matlab, perl/python, R). Research experience in protein sequence analysis is very desirable.

UTMB is located in Galveston, Texas, on a historical tropical island in the Gulf of Mexico in the greater Houston area. UTMB is a part of the Gulf Coast Consortium for Bioinformatics, which offers excellent cross-disciplinary research and education opportunities.

Interested applicants should submit a CV, a letter of interest and the names of three referees to Dr. Rowicka at Maga.Rowicka@utmb.edu. Applications will be reviewed upon receipt and selected candidates will be contacted for an interview.
