Default Postdoc position - Computational Biologist - The University of Western Australia



An outstanding opportunity to be involved in exciting epigenomics/genomics research projects in a world class research environment located in a city with exceptional quality of life

3 year appointment
Salary: Level A $77,328 p.a.
Salary range: Level B $81,400 - $96,663 p.a.
Closing date: Friday, 13 January 2012

Applications are invited from a highly motivated scientist to work in a multi-disciplinary team environment on epigenomics/genomics research projects within both plant and animal systems. You will join a dedicated team of bioinformaticists/mathematicians/statisticians who analyse the genomic, epigenomic, transcriptomic, proteomic and metabolomic data produced by the Centre of Excellence in Plant Energy Biology (CoE PEB) researchers. A wider aim of the CoE PEB will be to promote the understanding and uptake of modern systems orientated approaches within biotech research and industry in WA, both in plant and animal sciences.

You will lead the integrative data analysis for key research projects that aim to answer fundamental unresolved questions in plants and animals concerning the regulation of genomic information by epigenetic mechanisms. Additionally, you will also lead the analysis and interpretation of a variety of high-throughput DNA sequencing experiments performed in the CoE PEB, including whole-genome profiling of DNA methylation, transcriptome, protein-DNA interactions, and chromatin modifications profiles. Applicants must have a PhD in computational biology, molecular biology or related discipline. Previous experience in genomics and the computational analysis of next-generation DNA sequencing data would be an advantage.

The position will involve tight collaboration with CoE PEB researchers and close links to nearby computing centres such as iVEC@UWA and the Centre for Comparative Genomics based at Murdoch University.
