We are seeking a post-doctoral fellow with a focus in the computational analysis of microbiome data who will work with the investigative team to design and develop bioinformatics pipelines for analysis of microbiome data from acquisition and integration through analysis and visualization and to develop customized tools for integrating and analyzing microbiome data in conjunction with clinical, metabolomics, and exposure data.
The post-doctoral fellow will be responsible for processing data through bioinformatics pipelines and preparing summaries, presentations, figures, and manuscript sections for the visualization and publication of complex data and results. The post-doctoral fellow will also be responsible for testing and validation of new software and tools and for maintaining detailed documentation of all projects and analyses.
Positions are temporary appointments as a research trainee. The initial appointment is for one year, renewal expected if progress is satisfactory and funds are available. Appointments cannot exceed five years.
