Both positions are part of a larger "virtual" team of bioinformaticians across the University from the GSAF, TACC, and SSC as well as the home departments of CCBB and CSSB. By working together, we're efficiently building a knowledge base for our students and faculty for cutting-edge research in many fields. Both positions will work on defined research projects across many departments and colleges within the University, partnering with leading-edge scientists in many domains. Typical assignments will be for 6 to 12 months, usually with two or three projects operating in parallel.
We don't expect successful candidates will know everything; they should produce top-quality work, be willing to share their knowledge broadly, and be willing to learn. The BioITeam is a great place to contribute what you know while also branching out and learning new biology, new approaches, and new analytical techniques from a wide range of world-class researchers.
In either position, you have access to not one but two and soon three Top-500 supercomputing clusters at the Texas Advanced Computing Center. You'll never be resource constrained in this thriving environment!
