US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
Announcement Number: RTP-ORD-42-2016-0004
EPA’s Office of Research Development and the National Center for Computational Toxicology (NCCT) are seeking an investigator-level bioinformatics scientist to conduct research into the development and application of bioinformatics approaches to analyze data from high-throughput transcriptomic studies and integrate the information with high-throughput biochemical and cell-based screening assays, and in vivo toxicity studies to assess the potential health effects associated with environmental chemicals. The successful applicant will have a doctoral degree (PhD or DSc) in bioinformatics, genomics, genetics, biology, computer science, or a related field, with a strong background in the analysis and interpretation of transcriptomic data.
EPA’s National Center for Computational Toxicology is located in Research Triangle Park, NC. The NCCT provides scientific leadership, understanding and tools related to the application of mathematical, computational, and statistical approaches to mine, model, and integrate data derived from new technologies in chemistry, biotechnology, and molecular biology. Part of NCCT’s mission is to enable regulatory and non-regulatory Agency programs to integrate data from the new technologies together with computational, mathematical, and statistical models for making efficient and economical chemical safety decisions.
