Job Description:
A postdoctoral position is available in gene network analysis, genome-wide association studies, and/or functional genomics (phenomics, transcriptomics, etc.). The objective of the project (Value-directed Evolutionary Genomics Initiative or VEGI; http://biology.mcgill.ca/vegi/index.html) is to identify and characterize functional and agronomically important non-coding DNA regions in members of the plant family, Brassicacaeae. This family includes some of the most important Canadian crop species, including canola.

The functional non-coding DNA sequences will be characterized by a combination of comparative, population and functional genomics approaches. High-throughput DNA and RNA sequencing, gene disruption via insertion T-DNA mutagenesis, transgenics/RNAi and detailed whole organism phenotype characterization, are major parts of our strategy.
The successful candidate will be a part of a bioinformatics team including members from McGill University and the University of Toronto. She/he must be versed in the handling of large datasets and able to multitask as the project evolves.
Minimum qualifications
• Ph.D. in bioinformatics or other relevant field.
• Proven research experience and a strong publication record.
• Solid analytical, computing, and statistical skills.
• Candidates should be comfortable working in a UNIX/linux environment, have a strong programming background, and be proficient in working with large datasets.
Preferred qualifications
• Strong abilities for team work
• Candidates with a background in interdisciplinary research, spanning both biological sciences and applied mathematics/computer science, are especially encouraged to apply.
• Candidates will ideally be conversant in a programming language (e.g., FORTRAN, C or C++), a scripting language (e.g., Perl), and a statistical environment (e.g., R).
Application deadline: 12th June 2011
Funding is available for two years. The position is to be filled within the next two months. To apply formally, submit the following documents in PDF format:
1. A brief statement of research interests, qualifications and experience and why you feel you are a good candidate for this position.
2. Curriculum vitae, including a list of scientific publications.
3. The names and contact details of at least two references willing to provide a confidential letter of recommendation upon request.
