Job Title: Postdoctoral positions in computational biology/bioinformatics of cellular networks Required Skills: Strong background in molecular biology or biochemistry, bioinformatics, statistics, computer programming. Job Description: Post-doctoral positions are immediately available in the group of Dr. Gary Bader at the University of Toronto (http://baderlab.org) to study the organization and evolution of biological systems using computational biology and bioinformatics techniques. We seek to accurately predict links, such as specific molecular interactions, in eukaryotic cell signaling systems using comprehensive genomics data. We are interested to find how these links are rewired by mutations to cause disease. This work is supported through the development of open-source biological pathway and network databases and visualization and analysis software. Successful applicants should have strong interest and/or experience in: * Predicting biologically relevant protein interactions * Cellular network evolution * Detection of cell type and stage active biological processes using molecular profiles * Biological pathway and network databases and analysis tools The Bader group is situated in the newly built Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research, a major international centre of genomics, proteomics and systems biology research, in the heart of the exciting cosmopolitan city of Toronto. Please send your CV, research interests and the names of 3 references to firstname.lastname@example.org
