Description

The Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Department is seeking candidates with a strong background in bioinformatics and genomics to develop web-based course(s). Applicants should be familiar with data analytics methods for high-throughput next generation sequencing data as well as the different domains of bioinformatics: genome assembly, variation calling and gene expression studies. A good understanding of the algorithmic foundations of bioinformatics methods and their impact on analytical choices is desired. Familiarity with sequencing instruments and sample preparation protocols is important. Course design would need to be complete for an expected course launch in summer 2018. Prior teaching experience or knowledge of sound pedagogical practices preferred. Qualified applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, statement of teaching interests and contact information for three professional references. Review of complete applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Salary is commensurate with experience.
