Come join the revolution at Stanford!
-- Atul Butte
Postdoctoral opportunities in Systems Medicine and Bioinformatics at Stanford University:
The laboratory of Dr. Atul Butte at Stanford Medical School is seeking highly motivated investigators to develop and study novel approaches in data-driven biomedical research to discover new biomarkers, therapeutics, and to revolutionize health and health-care. Post- doctoral fellowships are fully funded for at least 2 years.
Ideal candidates will have an M.D. and/or Ph.D. with a strong background in bioinformatics, computational biology, biostatistics, and genomics, excellent communication and programming skills, and a great publication record. Strong problem-solving skills, creative thinking, and the ability to build new software tools as needed are required. A dual background in both computation and molecular biology or medicine or pharmacology will be a strong plus. Prior experience with genetic, microarray, drug, or clinical databases, text-mining, knowledge representation, or parallel computing platforms is a plus. Applicants must possess good communication skills and be fluent in both spoken and written English. This exciting work will be guided by multidisciplinary collaborations with top scientists in stem-cell, immunology, diabetes, and cancer biology research at Stanford. To apply, please send your CV, a brief statement of research interests, and contact information for three references.
Staff bioinformatics specialist:
The laboratory of Dr. Atul Butte at Stanford Medical School is seeking highly motivated staff to develop and study novel approaches in data-driven biomedical research to discover new biomarkers, therapeutics, and to revolutionize health and health-care.
Employee will conduct research and development in biomedical informatics and biostatistics, by architecting, developing, maintaining, and documenting a bioinformatics software infrastructure that integrates disparate forms of clinical and genomic data and offers other evolving capabilities to support research activities. Responsibilities for this position include,
(1) to develop and implement novel computational techniques in software that can reanalyze public repositories of clinical and genomic data,
(2) to design, implement, and support novel software tools that allow for complex, biologically-driven queries across multiple types of data,
(3) to manage third-party programming services in the development, documentation, and release of public bioinformatics resources,
(4) to propose, research, and develop novel bioinformatics methods and techniques to support new research, and
(5) to consult with collaborating faculty and staff with regards to bioinformatics aspects of shared research endeavors.
This employee will be responsible for writing manuscripts and publishing novel bioinformatics findings and developments in appropriate professional journals and will be required to present aspects of bioinformatics work at conferences and workshops around the US and world.
