Postdoctoral positions in computational biology at the Joint Bioenergy Institute and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory open

The following three postdoctoral positions in computational biology, at the Joint Bioenergy Institute and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

All candidates should apply through http://jobs.llnl.gov, and need to have received their Ph.D. within the past five years.

--------------------------------------------

We are looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher in Metagenomics and Bioinformatics, to develop computational analysis methods for the discovery of new enzymes and metabolic pathways isolated from biomass-degrading microbial communities. The successful candidate will be an integral part of the Microbial Communities team in the Deconstruction Division of JBEI, a large multidisciplinary team of microbiologists, microbial ecologists, biochemists, and computational biologists. The postdoc will provide the computational backbone to process and integrate the various types of experimental data generated by the team, and develop cutting-edge analysis methods to achieve a functional understanding of the metabolic processes and interactions involved. Applicants should have a strong background in bioinformatics, experience dealing with large scale sequence data / metagenomics, and a commitment to collaborative research.

Note that this postdoc will be located at the Joint Bioenergy Institute in Emeryville, CA.

Please apply via http://jobs.llnl.gov, job# 008910

We are looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher in Systems Biology, to contribute to the research and development of systems biology tools integrated within the Protein Function Prediction Platform project, to enable rapid genome-scale analysis of newly sequenced pathogens, provide a higher-level context for the biological function of proteins and pathways of interest, and support research to identify and analyze potential target genes for countermeasure development. The postdoc will develop methods to predict and analyze pathway modularity and pathway membership based on protein structure-to-function and protein-protein interaction predictions generated by other modules of the project. Applicants must show significant achievement in computational biology, and a strong background in systems biology, machine learning, or protein function prediction.

We are looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher in Protein Structure to Function Analysis (computer scientist, bioinformatics scientist) with strong scientific interest and experience in protein sequence analysis, protein structure analysis, and protein function annotation.
The selected candidate will contribute to the research and methods development, data integration, and application of bioinformatics tools for the needs of the Protein Function Prediction Platform project. Will provide support for all phases of the platform development life cycle including design, application development, testing, and validation of created predictions. Will design and develop approaches to solutions, explore a variety of approaches within established practices and procedures, and recommend improvements to processes as
appropriate.
