A postdoctoral scholar position is immediately available in the Sackler Institute of Comparative Genomics at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. The research will involve computational reconstruction of metabolic pathways of ancient organisms using a combination of network analysis and phylogenetics and will involve the development of new computational resources along those lines. The successful candidate will have extensive computational background in network and graph based analysis and in scripting and programming languages (e.g. python, perl, R, C/C++) to complement the team with expertise in biology, genomics, and phylogentics. Additional experience in the development and application of theoretical models to biological problems (e.g. machine learning methods) would also be of interest. Position duration is 2 years.
