Openings at Johns Hopkins University
Johns Hopkins University: Software Engineers and Post-Docs

The Taylor Lab in the Biology and Computer Science departments at Johns Hopkins University is looking for software engineers and postdoctoral scholars to work on the Galaxy project.

We are seeking software engineers with expertise in distributed computing and systems programming, web-based visualization and visual analytics, informatics and data analysis and integration, and bioinformatics application areas such as re-sequencing, de novo assembly, metagenomics, transcriptome analysis and epigenetics. These are full time positions located in Baltimore, MD. See the official posting for full details.

Postdoctoral applicants should have expertise in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology and research interests that complement but extend the lab's current interests: The Galaxy project; distributed and high-performance computing for data intensive science; vertebrate functional genomics; and genomics and epigenomic mechanisms of gene regulation, the role of transcription factors and chromatin structure in global gene expression, development, and differentiation.
