The Center for Genome Dynamics (www.genomedynamics.org) is an NIGMS National Center for Systems Biology housed at The Jackson Laboratory. The Center embraces a systems approach to genetics, with an emphasis on rodent models of complex disease-related phenotypes. Center investigators have interests in computation, mathematical modeling and statistics, with a shared focus on the genetics of complex traits within the Center's collaborative and cross-disciplinary environment.

The Jackson Laboratory (www.jax.org) in Bar Harbor, Maine, USA, offers a unique research and training environment characterized by scientific collaboration, unparalleled mouse resources and outstanding core services within a spectacular setting adjacent to Acadia National Park.  The Jackson Laboratory's postdoctoral program ranks among the nation's top - voted #2 in a poll of postdocs conducted by The Scientist (2009).
Applicants should have a PhD (or equivalent degree) in a quantitative field such as computer science, statistics, applied mathematics or in the biological sciences but with a strong quantitative background. Applicants must demonstrate a commitment to solving biological problems. Successful applicants must have good communication skills.  Experience with scientific programming languages including java, c/c++, ruby, perl, or R is recommended. Work within the center is highly interdisciplinary, and applicants must demonstrate a desire to develop skills in new areas of science and in building strong collaborations.
