Job Description

A post-doctoral position is available at the University of Minnesota for development of bioinformatics tools, with a focus on applications that integrate data across ‘omics’ domains (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics). A particular emphasis is in the integration of mass spectrometry (MS)-based proteomics data with other types of ‘omics’ data for applications in proteogenomics and metaproteomics. The researcher will join a successful team of developers, collaborators and users who have developed the Galaxy for proteomics (Galaxy-P) platform (see usegalaxyp.org and z.umn.edu/galaxypreferences).

Requirements

A Ph.D. in bioinformatics, computer science, analytical chemistry or closely related field is required. Experience with MS-based proteomics data analysis is highly preferred. Demonstrated experience in contemporary computer programming (e.g. Python, Java etc.) is required, along with a proven track record of scientific publications and ability to work within a collaborative team. Experience working with the Galaxy bioinformatics framework is a plus.
