    Computational Biologist University of Nebraska Lincoln

    The Nebraska Center for Virology is looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic computational biologist with a proven track record in the area of bioinformatics. The candidate will collaborate with groups working on microbial genomics from a number of human, animal and plant viruses including HIV, herpesviruses, papilloma, influenza, pox and algal viruses.

    The successful applicant will actively participate in the design of next generation sequencing analysis pipelines and the analysis of next generation sequencing data. In addition the candidate will be responsible for carrying out further bioinformatics data analysis.

    The Nebraska Center for Virology is a Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) addressing pathogenic and therapeutic questions of some of the most devastating viral diseases.

    The position requires a highly motivated, enthusiastic and independent individual with a PhD in Computational Biology/Genomics/Computer Science/Applied Mathematics, strong analytical and programming skills (C/C++, perl/python, R, UNIX environment). Background in viral genetics will be a strong plus but is not essential. Experience with transcriptomics or the analysis of next-generation sequence data is also desirable.

    Informal inquiries about the projects are encouraged. For more information about the Center please go to

    Applicants should submit a cover letter describing previous experience and fit to the position, full CV and contact information for 3 references. Applications and all queries may be sent to Dr Charles Wood at [email protected]
