From: For anyone interested in a position in Microarray Bioinformatics and/or Data mining, see the job advert below. Nicky Postdoctoral position in Microarray Bioinformatics/Data Mining Description: We offer a post-doctoral level position to a dynamic individual interested in working collaboratively on a range of exciting research projects that require the application of statistical and data-mining techniques for the analysis of microarray and high throughput proteomics data. The individual hired for this position will become a member of a national initiative to grow high throughput biology in South Africa. (S)he will work as part of a team based at the University of Cape Town (UCT) and will provide expertise to projects that make use of the newly instituted Centre for Proteomics and Genomics Research (CPGR), located at the university. This will involve consultation with senior students and faculty on data analysis and the provision of intellectual input into the design of experiments based at institutions across South Africa that make use of the high throughput facilities at UCT. Experience with R-Bioconductor would be advantageous, as consultations may involve the development of R scripts for a particular analysis. In addition, the holder of this position will be encouraged to adopt a leadership role in the development of a national working group on the application of statistical methods to high throughput biology and, as part of this activity, will contribute to the organization and presentation of training courses in statistics and data-mining. The position includes the opportunity to develop new research projects independently or in collaboration with other researchers at the CPGR or other institutions in South Africa, and offers the successful candidate an opportunity to get involved in a range of exciting activities. Requirements: The position requires experience with data analysis for high- throughput biology or a quantitative background and a willingness to learn. A formal qualification in bioinformatics, applied mathematics or statistics as well as good knowledge of microarray experimental design, pre-processing and analysis methodologies would be advantageous. Good communication skills are also essential. To apply please send a CV and covering letter to: info at
