I am likely to start my lab in October in the department of Biostatistics & Computational Biology (chaired by @rafalab) at Dana-Farber. I am looking for a couple of postdocs in bioinformatics, genomics and related fields.

How to contact to you?

How to contact to you

The job is from Heng Li, not Pierre

You could Google Heng Li and figure out how to contact him. For all we know this could be part of his hiring process :-)

I would recommend against volunteering unless you're absolutely sure the benefits outweigh the considerable costs. I cannot recall any opportunities off the top of my head, but you might want to check with PIs around you - volunteering opportunities often present themselves by word-of-mouth.

I totally agree with "against volunteering work unless benefits outweigh the considerable costs". But I tried lot to get some practical work, but not succeed yet. It is very hard to get start career in Bioinformatician at entry level. so, volunteering work can help get exposure on real NGS problems.

Maybe try Google summer code? and search for bioinformatics related topics.

Thanks @Medhat. GScode is only for academic students. Now I am not a academic student, I have completed my Master last year.
