A postdoctoral research position in biological informatics at Cold  
Spring Harbor Laboratory is available to a motiviated scientist who is  
interested in applying computational approaches to manipulating and  
analyzing large molecular and genetic datasets. The successful  
candidate will join an ongoing NSF-funded project studying replication  
origins and the overall organizational structure of plant chromosomes  
using high-density microarrays and next-generation sequencing  

The successful candidate will be responsible for developing new  
algorithms, tools, and scripts for analysis and interpretation of the  
high-throughput data components of this project. Research may include,  
but is not restricted to, such topics as cluster computing, machine  
learning systems, statistical modeling applications, and genome  
annotation tools.

Candidates are required to have a Ph.D. in Genetics, Plant Biology,  
Biochemistry and/or Computational Biology (or equivalent). Ideally,  
they will have a good understanding of statistics and experience with  
at least one scripting language (such as Perl or Python), the R  
programming environment, and relational databases. Previous experience  
with microarrays or high-throughput sequencing is desirable but not  
required, as is a general interest in chromosome biology and  

Funding for this position is secured for two years from date of hire.  
However, the successful candidate is expected and encouraged to apply  
for all eligible fellowships.

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory is a world-renowned research and  
educational institution with programs in cancer, neuroscience, plant  
biology, genomics and bioinformatics. The Laboratory is recognized  
internationally for its excellence in research and educational  
activities. Candidates will have opportunities to interact with and  
participate in advanced research in molecular biology, genetics,  
bioinformatics, and computational biology, and will have access to  
robust information technology resources as well as a high-performance  
computing cluster.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the  
position has been filled. Please send CV, a statement of research  
interests, and 3 reference contacts to vaughn at cshl.edu
