Dear list,

Here is a job advertisement posted on behalf of Owen Solberg and Prescott
Woodruff. If you are interested, please contact
Prescott.woodruff at ucsf.edu.

Post-Doctoral Position in Applied Bioinformatics
University of California, San Francisco

The Woodruff Laboratory of the UCSF Airway Clinical Research Center is a 
rapidly growing laboratory that combines human studies of Asthma and 
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) with genome-wide gene 
expression microarray analyses. To take optimal advantage of a large 
existing tissue bank and ongoing clinical studies, we are pleased to 
announce an opening for a Post-Doctoral Position in Applied

Desirable experience: Computational biology with strong background in 
genomics and systems biology.

Position: The position is funded by a grant from the NIH/NHLBI (R01 HL- 
095372, Molecular Phenotyping of Asthma). The project has applied genomic 
analyses to airway samples from patients with asthma to distinguish 
Th2-driven and non-Th2-driven sub-phenotypes of asthma that have distinct 
clinical, pathological and treatment-related characteristics. Ongoing 
analyses are aimed at identifying gene expression markers in lung tissue 
samples of inflammation and remodeling in these two sub-groups of asthma 
and identifying whole blood gene expression markers of these clinical 
phenotypes. Additional studies have been initiated using miRNA arrays and 
applying similar approaches to study COPD and Interstitial Lung Diseases. 
The successful candidate will integrate into an interdisciplinary team and

take charge of:
     * Modelling and analyzing comprehensive gene expression and
         regulatory networks using human samples
     * Integrating gene expression, miRNA expression and sequence
         variation data
     * Designing qPCR validation experiments
     * Integrating publicly available datasets with "in-house" data

Qualifications: Applicants should hold a PhD in a biological field, 
bioinformatics, computational biology, applied mathematics, or an 
equivalent subject. Motivated and broadly interested individuals willing 
to operate in a multidisciplinary environment on challenging scientific 
projects are encouraged to apply.

Salary: Commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Starting date: March 2010. Contract will be initially for one year and is 
renewable yearly up to 4 years maximum. Work site: UCSF Medical Center 
campus, 513 Parnassus Ave, San Francisco CA 94143

Contact: For further information, please contact Dr. Prescott Woodruff 
(Prescott.woodruff at ucsf.edu). To apply, please send a full CV, a statement

of interest and names of two references by e-mail.
