Postdoc positions available at Rutgers University

Postdoctoral Research Scientist

Rutgers University

Joint Appointment: Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences, BioMaPS and
Dept. of Biochemistry and Microbiology

Two 2-3 year Postdoctoral Research Scientist positions are available.
We are looking for young scholars with experience in the areas of
computational biology. In the scope of this project, we will uncover how
the metal-containing enzymes responsible for the critical electron
transfer reactions that turn basic elements such as H, O, C, S, and N
into biologically active molecules have evolved. The position will
involve developing new sequence and/or structure based bioinformatic
approaches to (1) mine available databases for proteins responsible for
bio-catalyzed electron transfer reactions, (2) establish evolutionary
relationships between extracted sequences and structures and (3)
generate hypotheses for how the electron transfer circuitry arose and
now functions. Candidates should have a PhD in Computational Biology or
Bioinformatics. Candidates with degrees in related fields (e.g. biology,
computer science) and possessing the necessary skill-sets are welcome to
apply. We strongly encourage applications from recent PhD graduates.
Strong programming skills (at least one of: Perl, Python, or Java) are
essential for these positions, as well as, some familiarity with the
major bioinformatics tools and databases. Experience in machine
learning algorithms is desired, but not required. Candidates should be
fluent in spoken and written English and should be able to communicate
ideas and results to colleagues from all the diversity of life sciences.
The ability to integrate into a team is as essential as that to complete
a project without constant supervision.

Interested persons should e-mail a cover letter and C.V. to:
