Professor Positions - Bioinformatics & Computational Biology

Summary The Jackson Laboratory is inviting applications for Assistant, Associate and Full Professors in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Research at The Jackson Laboratory for Mammalian Genetics campus in Bar Harbor, Maine. The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) is an independent, nonprofit biomedical research institution and features a National Cancer Institute-designated Cancer Center. JAX is a highly collaborative environment that fosters multidisciplinary approaches to investigate complex biological questions. Our faculty use genetic and genomic approaches to conduct basic and translational research on fundamental biological processes in disease using mouse models and human studies. JAX is home to internationally recognized information resources including the Mouse Genome Informatics (MGI) database and the Gene Ontology and Human Phenotype Ontology projects.  Responsibilities We are seeking faculty who are pursuing computational approaches in the following research areas: Systems genetics Current research at JAX includes systems approaches to complex trait analysis, including genetic analysis of transcript expression, histone modifications, and protein abundance. Cancer Computational Biology Current research focus areas include models of cancer biology, tumor evolution, tumor-immune systems interactions, and mechanisms of therapy response and resistance. Cross-organism bioinformatics Current research at JAX includes initiatives to create and align animal models of human disease with clinical genetics. This work includes algorithms to translate results for both the genome and phenome. Qualifications Successful candidates must hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree; have two to five years of postdoctoral training; have a record of significant research accomplishments; and present long-term research goals consistent with establishing and/or maintaining a highly successful research program. 2018-24905

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
