Do you think that biology needs better models and better software tools? Do you want to bridge the low-throughput detailed biological information with high throughput system scale profiling experiments? Are you interested in computational approaches to precision medicine? If your answer is yes, we might have a great position for you!
We are looking for postdoctoral researchers who are passionate about making a positive impact and have demonstrated creative programming skills, preferably in an open source setting. Our goal is to build on our existing work in pathway informatics and cancer genomics to find creative ways to generate very large models of cellular processes and apply them to understand and cure cancer. We are at a very exciting junction with existing and new collaborations with Intel, Dana Farber, Harvard Medical School and University of Toronto.
Working in a dynamic, software development focused team, you will build tools, algorithms and services for creating and using detailed, system scale pathway information with specific focus on Cancer Biology. Previous experience in -omic data, pathways and networks, real time collaborative platforms, natural language processing and data visualization will be evaluated positively. Cross training or experience in biology is highly desirable. Previous open source software development experience is also a major plus.
Ph.D. in relevant field
Demonstrated open source software development experience
As the state's only health and research university, OHSU brings together patient care, research, education of the next generation of health care providers and scientists and community service to improve the health and well-being of all Oregonians.The university is a conduit for learning for more than 2,800 students, providing training to interns, residents and fellows in postgraduate medical and r...esearch. It is the only place in Oregon that grants doctoral degrees in medicine, dentistry and nursing. OHSU cares for more than 251,000 patients each year from around the region and takes a leadership role in contributing to solutions involving the health of the state and the nation, such as health care access and transparency, ethics and workforce shortage. Beyond providing critical health care services, quality education and cutting-edge research, OHSU also is a key economic and social force in the Northwest. With an annual operating budget of $2.06 billion and more than 14,000 employees, OHSU is Portland?s largest employer. Its size contributes to its ability to provide many services and community support activities not found anywhere else in Oregon. For more information visit http://www.ohsu.edu/xd/about/index.cfm
