The K-INBRE Bioinformatics Core at the University of Kansas is hiring a Bioinformatics Specialist to support genome biology research on campus. We are seeking applications from dynamic, motivated individuals interested in helping KU researchers develop and analyze genomics projects, providing computational biology and statistical expertise. Previous work in the Core has analyzed RNAseq data from a range of species, developed pipelines for genotyping-by-sequencing analysis, and assembled and annotated draft genomes for both prokaryotic and eukaryotic species. While this is largely a service-oriented position, the KU Bioinformatics Specialist would also have time to develop their own research projects, supported by, and collaborating with KU research faculty.
The KINBRE Bioinformatics Core at KU (k-inbre.org/bioinformatics.html) provides computational support to researchers throughout the State of Kansas interested in incorporating next-generation sequencing and other genomics technologies into their research. The Core has a strong, collaborative relationship with the KU Genome Sequencing Core (gsc.ku.edu), and is integrated with the Macdonald lab in the Department of Molecular Biosciences (molecularbiosciences.ku.edu/stuart-j-macdonald).
