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 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 strategies 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, GeneWeaver integrative genomics tools, and the Gene Ontology and Human Phenotype Ontology projects.
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.
Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae and a concise statement of research interests and plans, through the JAX Careers portal at www.jax.org/careers.
In addition, please arrange to have three letters of reference sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
PRIMARY RESEARCH AREAS OF RECRUITMENT
- Systems approaches to complex trait analysis, including genetic analysis of transcript expression, histone modifications and protein abundance, as well as deep learning and neural network analysis of high-volume genomic, imaging, video and other whole organism data.
- Initiatives include creating and aligning animal models of human disease with clinical genetics by using algorithms to translate results for diverse genomes and phenomes that maximize translational potential of animal models.
- Focus areas include models of cancer biology, tumor evolution, tumor-immune systems interactions and mechanisms of therapy response and resistance.
