This position is a Bioinformatics Research programmer analyst position in Computational Biology / Biomedical Informatics. This position is specific to our ongoing and proposed projects related to developing computational models to elucidate the causal pathways of gene expression regulatory networks, phenotypic effects (e.g. individual differences in disease susceptibility and responses to medications) of genetic/transcriptional variations, functional elements in non-coding DNA sequences, and Biomedical literature mining among others.
The successful applicant will have knowledge and experience with advanced data-structures, multi-threading, multi-core, large memory environment, large sparse datasets and performance tuning is desired. Experience in gene network modeling, genome sequence analysis, biological text mining, machine learning, and Bayesian networks, Conditional Random Fields, HMM models will be of advantage.
The applicant will have a chance to develop programs and implement sophisticated algorithms related to Machine Learning / Artificial Intelligence. Particular emphasis will be given to static/dynamic Bayesian networks data mining, causal Bayesian networks.
Education: MS degree or equivalent, and research experience in Computer Science, Bioinformatics or related areas required. (Education qualifications must be from a school whose accreditation is recognized by Marshfield Clinic).
Experience: Require experience in one or more of the following programming languages: JAVA and Perl.
