The Biomedical Engineering Department at USD (University of South Dakota) is seeking a strong candidate for a postdoctoral position to work on the Data Analysis with Predictive Modeling for bioscience and biomedical engineering. The candidate will work with the BiCBE (Bioinformatics and Computational Bioengineering) research group to develop new data mining and machine learning model for biomaterial and medical device discovery. The candidate will have ongoing projects in leveraging big data mining tools for the development and implementation of data analysis algorithms and workflows for bioengineering knowledge discovery, with application on animal and plant. The candidate will seek grant opportunities in the areas of Big Data analytics, bioinformatics, and medical applications, publish high quality research papers in peer-reviewed journals, as well as explore collaboration possibilities at USD and beyond.
The candidate should have data analytical skills with strong programming background in languages, including but not limited to Python, R and Java. The candidate should demonstrate good communication skills and an interest in working collaboratively across disciplines. USD Biomedical Engineering offers a competitive salary and an initial appointment of 12 to 24 months, starting as soon as possible. Extension of the postdoctoral position for up to 5 years is possible. Once employed, the postdoc researcher will participate in a number of workshops and receive proper career and scientific mentoring on grantsmanship, pedagogy, time management, research group management, science communications, and commercialization. The successful candidate will be expected to pursue research in the areas described above, with activities including interacting with experimental collaborators, setting up models, data analysis workflows, and other computational procedures, writing up and publishing results in peer-reviewed journals, presenting results at conferences and helping with developing new projects.
Candidates should have earned a Ph.D. in Bioinformatics/Computer Science/Computational Systems Biology or any related field, be highly motivated and have extensive knowledge and experience with Systems Biology modeling and simulation or Bioinformatics Data Mining.
