Dear Bioconductor, We've just opened up a new position in Robert Gentleman's group. The title is Computational Biologist. Please see the description below. Genentech is an awesome place to work. Lots of cool computational and scientific challenges. URL: The Position The Department of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology in Genentech Research is seeking a motivated individual to lead the development of software methods and infrastructure for the analysis of high-throughput biological data. This work will be in close collaboration with other computational researchers, as well as the broader community of Genentech scientists, who are together seeking novel therapies for unmet medical needs. Much of the software will be developed in R, as it is our primary data analysis environment. Interesting challenges include the scale of the data and the need for agility in a fast-paced, dynamic research environment. Publishing of methods and software is encouraged, and there is potential for collaboration with open-source projects. There is also opportunity for investigating open scientific problems in computational biology, such as variant calling, functional assessment of non-coding transcripts, and the relationship between copy number variation and expression. Who You Are A masters or preferably PhD in computer science, statistics, computational biology or similar field is required. Must have a strong command of R, with 5+ years experience and knowledge of S4 classes, parallel computing and the R/C interface. A successful applicant will very likely have contributed to one or more R packages available from the CRAN or Bioconductor repositories. Additional experience in languages like C/C++ and Python would be a strong plus. Must be at home in a UNIX environment. Scientific competence should be demonstrated by publications in high-profile journals. You will have excellent communication skills, a very strong background in software engineering, quantitative skills and an ability to work in teams. [[alternative HTML version deleted]]
