Ph.D / Postdoctoral Position in Bioinformatics at Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria A position in bioinformatics is immediately available at the newly founded Institute for Bioinformatics at the Johannes Kepler University (JKU) Linz, Austria. The duration of the employment will be 4 years. The JKU supplies a perfect environment for bioinformatics research with its strong biophysics and biochemical groups. The research activities in bioinformatics are currently promoted by the Upper Austrian government in its strategic program for future investments in science and technology. The city of Linz, located in the beautiful alpine uplands, is a nice place to live between Salzburg and Vienna (both cities are reachable by an approximately 1,5 hours train trip). The bioinformatics group's research interests currently include, among others, the analysis of microarray and SNP data, protein 3D structure prediction, protein classification, sequence analysis and motif extraction, and molecular dynamics. The position is part of a project on the development of new drugs against avian flu and other viruses. Toward this end machine learning and bioinformatics methods are used to analyse the virus genome ? for example the coiled-coil structure of the avian flu virus surface protein hemagglutinin will be investigated. The project is in collaboration with the Molecular Libraries and Recognition Group at the Charit? in Berlin and the Robert Koch Institute, Berlin. The position is open both for postdocs and PhD students. The ideal applicant will have knowledge in bioinformatics, computer science, biology, mathematics chemistry, or physics. Background in machine learning, data mining or statistics would be helpful. Programming skills in a high-level programming language are required. Women in particular are invited to apply. If several applicants have approximately equivalent qualifications, the rules on equal opportunities will be applied. Application: CV and additional application documents can be send by 17th May 2006 to Birgit Hauer, Johannes Kepler University Linz, Institute for Bioinformatics, Altenbergerstr. 69, A-4040 Linz, Austria or by email to birgit.hauer at For further information please contact: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Sepp Hochreiter Institute for Bioinformatics Johannes Kepler University Linz hochreit at
