How about making this a community wiki?

This thread could need an update.

ADD REPLYlink written 19 months ago by Michael Dondrup44k

a lot of the answers depends on the yahoo pipe and actually it does not exist anymore besides there a lot of other options now.

ADD REPLYlink written 19 months ago by Medhat7.6k

Yes, that is true, but most of the links are still active. Quite astonishing.

I guess a follow on to this question is "What are the best sites to advertise informatics jobs when you are on a limited budget." My system includes posting on:

  • LinkedIn - Free when you post via your status profile and groups.
  • Nature Jobs - Free
  • GenomeWeb - Free
  • Bioinformatics(dot)org - $75 / year professional membership needed
  • Craigslist - Free in most cities and a great way to find local candidates if you are in a bigger biotech city (DC, Boston, SD)
  • ISCB - Free if you are a member, which is like 100 bucks.
  • Dice.com - Expensive, but targeted. Geared more to technology professionals, have found several great SE and sys admin candidates here.

Then, use sites like Twitter, FriendFeed, LinkedIn, Facebook, etc to spread thew word about the availability of these positions, and point candidates to your website. I use Wufoo to generate applications, track candidates via the reports, etc.

I find all of these are great ways to find entry-mid level candidates.

There is no substitute for trusted referrals or candidates from your existing network of professionals.

Of course these are all great sites to search for a new job as well, that why I use them. ;-)

nice use of yahoo pipes

ADD REPLYlink written 8.1 years ago by Zach Stednick640

yahoo pipes is discontinued.

ADD REPLYlink written 19 months ago by Michael Dondrup44k

A search brings up other options for pipes. Here is one.

BioPlanet is quite active, for both advertising and searching: http://www.bioplanet.com/planetforums/forumdisplay.php?fid=1.

In Australia I use the jobs portal Seek - http://www.seek.com.au/ - I'm sure other countries have a similar website.

Advertising? Twitter, with the hash tags #bioinformatics #jobs.

In the UK, pretty much every academic job is listed on http://www.jobs.ac.uk/ - they have good mechanisms for filtering the stream.

The New Scientist is a good place to find openings too - http://www.newscientistjobs.com/jobs/default.aspx

As for advertising... I agree with Neil - Twitter + hash tags.

A lot of universities and companies never post to national boards and their websites do not get spidered. When I was looking for my first bioinformatics job I collected a list of every job board of every major university I could find and checked each one daily.

Here is my list (some of these might have moved by now)

i've also seen bioinformatics jobs posted to programming language-specific local user group mailing lists such as perlmongers

craigslist should also not be overlooked - especially in major cities

I made a Yahoo Pipe for Bioinformatics jobs crunching RSSes together from the following and lamely filtering by City or State in the US:

twitter.com (Bioinformatics Jobs and search)
simplyhired.com
nature.com
dice.com
indeed.com
craigslist.org
bioinformatics.ca
genomeweb.com
search.twitter.com
researchgate.net

By State: http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.info?_id=7a0bbe8ca6861bad3dddf4a94d6788f0 [?] By City: http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.info?_id=728d3679873750e7b9555107e47fcc30

Just enter your city and grab the RSS it produces. Note the state version is terrible inaccurate, and yes, this could be done much better, but it would take a lot of effort.

If anyone has suggestions make a comment and I'll update it.

It seems a search for "bioinformatics" and "hiring" on twitter gives quite some hits as well: http://twitter.com/#!/search/bioinformatics%20hiring

  1. Some companies do not longer publish their vacancies in newspapers but instead use their own vacancy web-site. This is helpful and up-to-date (well, should be), but the counterside is that there's no longer a central place where you can find all actual vacant jobs. So if you are searching for a job you have to check out a score of websites on a regular base. To make this somewhat easier the Geneyous JobReport has been set up.

    The JobReport checks the vacancy pages of several (mostly Dutch) companies and institutes on a regular base on keywords like genomics, bio-informatician, genetics, scientific programmer and more, including Dutch translations.

    The results are placed in a grid and arrows indicate if the number of keywords has increased/decreased/remained stable the last month.

  2. AcademicTransfer is the joint job board of Dutch universities, university medical centers and research institutions. Use this website to search jobs, career opportunities and trends in the Dutch and international academic job market.

  3. The Bioinformatics Organization Career Center

AcademicTransfer is good.

And as a candidate, I found my current job there as well. High signal to noise but some good opportunities nonetheless.

I've also seen job postings at the SeqAnswers forum. That seems like a good place because you know that the people seeing the posting are more likely to be hooked into the bioinformatics community, especially if you are looking for someone with NGS analysis experience.
