The University of Kansas is recruiting a research scientist with expertise in genomics and bioinformatics. The position is associated with the NIH-funded K-INBRE (Kansas IDeA Networks of Biomedical Research Excellence) Bioinformatics Core, directed by Stuart Macdonald.
We are seeking applications from dynamic, motivated individuals interested in providing computational biology and statistical expertise to help KU researchers develop and analyze genomics projects. The Bioinformatics Specialist will work closely with the KU Genome Sequencing Core facility to support investigators as they design genome biology experiments, particularly those that involve Illumina sequencing data. The user base of the K-INBRE Bioinformatics Core is broad, and the successful candidate can expect to work on a diverse array of problems in a range of systems. The Bioinformatics Specialist would also be able to develop their own research program, mentored by, and collaborating with the many KU research faculty with strong interests in genome biology (for example, Justin Blumenstiel, John Kelly, Erik Lundquist, Stuart Macdonald).
