Postdoctoral Researchers

Galaxy Project: Emory University or Penn State University
Job Location: 
Atlanta, GA or State College PA, United States
Job Description: 

We are recruiting postdoctoral scholars with expertise in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. Our work on Galaxy is driven by our biological and biomedical research programs, and we are interested in hearing from potential postdocs with a wide variety of research interests:

1) Computational and HCI research on both the development of scientific analysis and data management tools, and the creation of novel user interfaces and interactive visualizations for analyzing large-scale biomedical data.
2) Distributed and high-performance computing for data intensive science, specifically genomics.
3) Vertebrate functional and evolutionary genomics, particularly through the development of novel machine learning, data mining, and data integration methods incorporating genomic sequence and experimental data.
4) And numerous areas of biology including genomic and epigenomic mechanisms of gene regulation, the role of transcription factors and chromatin structure in global gene expression, development, and differentiation.

About Our Organization: 

We develop Galaxy, a free, open-source platform that (a) enables researchers to store, analyze, visualize and share genomic data and (b) provides genomic tool developers with the ability to deploy their tools within a complete analysis framework. Galaxy is well known with thousands of researchers worldwide using it on a daily basis. Our team members are well regarded and widely recognized within the vast biomedical domain. With genomics being the pivot of future life sciences and healthcare, joining the Galaxy project will open an immense array of possibilities.

Positions are available both at Emory University, Atlanta GA (in the lab of PI James Taylor) and Penn State University, State College, PA (in the lab of PI Anton Nekrutenko).
