The Department of Clinical Sciences at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center is seeking highly motivated individuals to join its Translational Bioinformatics Initiative (http://tinyurl.com/UTSW-TBI). Successful applicants will join an active and expanding bioinformatics research effort that includes the Division of Biomedical Informatics and the Quantitative Biomedical Research Center.

Our research mission is focused on addressing research questions across the spectrum of biology and medicine through the development of novel computational methods that solve challenging problems in the collection, management, analysis, and interpretation of biomedical and clinical data. We are actively recruiting postdoctoral researchers and research scientists for two projects: *

  • VDJServer – a web-accessible data repository and analysis server for high throughput sequencing data obtained from antigen receptor gene rearrangements. VDJServer is being hosted at the Texas Advanced Computing Center. Thus, there is extensive collaboration with TACC scientists, as well as with experimentalists generating repertoire sequence data. The new researchers will focus on algorithm and software development for standard and novel approaches to analyzing antigen receptor repertoires. Successful applicants will have experience with the analysis of high throughput sequencing data and high competency programming in C++ and either PERL or Python. *
  • Infectious Disease Ontology – a suite of interoperable ontology modules for the infectious disease domain being developed within the framework of the Open Biomedical Ontologies Foundry. We seek both domain experts for ontology curation and individuals with experience in logic, computational inference, and/or semantic web technologies. Applicants should have an interest in innovative, computational applications of ontologies to the study of immunology and infectious diseases.
