Open source, open science, citizen science – Join us!

If you follow our lab at all you’ve probably noticed some themes emerging in how we approach bioinformatics and biomedical research. To enumerate a few of those themes, we believe in: Open source: We have benefited from the long tradition of open source software in bioinformatics, and we in turn release code through our lab’s open source repositories. We have a particular emphasis on...

Join our motley crew of researchers!

Several months ago I put out a call for postdocs applicants. Combined with other recruiting efforts, the lab has grown with several new positions — two postdocs (starting in the fall, and more upcoming interviews), our Scientific Outreach Program Manager, and an intern. And despite this growth, we need more. My group has been pretty fortunate in the funding lottery, both in terms our...

Recruiting a Scientific Outreach Program Manager

In addition to recruiting for new postdoctoral associates, my group also just posted an ad for a Scientific Outreach Program Manager. What exactly is a Scientific Outreach Program Manager? In truth, we’re not completely sure. What we do know is that our lab believes passionately in crowdsourcing, and engaging crowds is a lot of work. Our existing lab members do an amazing job developing...

Recruiting postdocs in earnest!

There is currently no higher priority for our group right now than recruiting 2-3 new postdoctoral associates to join the lab. We are lucky enough to have very stable funding over the next few years, so these are already-funded positions waiting to be filled ASAP. I have posted two “traditional” job ads here and here, but these are meant to give a flavor of the type of person we are...

Postdocs wanted

It’s been about two months since we hit the ground here at Scripps. Overall, things have been great. Our new lab (office) space is newly renovated, our servers are up and running, and we’re back to doing science. It’s time to expand the team. We are actively soliciting applications from postdoc candidates. What kind of background are we looking for? Well, generally speaking you...

Recruiting for a postdoc in bioinformatics

GNF is now recruiting for a postdoctoral associate to join our Bioinformatics group. Details are in the official job posting, but generally speaking this individual will be involved in large scale data mining projects from public and proprietary data sets. The goal of the research will be to identify novel disease genes across many scientific disciplines, and then work with our teams of...
