Kenkyuin in Bioinformatics (2015-12-7)

National Institutes of Biomedical Innovation, Health and Nutrition (NIBIOHN), Osaka

Updated Dec 7, 2015

[Overview]
In the Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Group at the NIBIOHN, we carry out bioinformatics and computational biology research into drug discovery and development (with special emphasis on early-stage target discovery and toxicity prediction). Our research involves both the analysis of real-life experimental data and the development of novel computational techniques, aiming to establish systems approaches to drug discovery.

See mizuguchilab.org for more details.

A “kenkyuin” position is currently open.

[Number of post]
1 [“ninkitsuki kenkyuin” (three-year appointment) or “kenkyuin” (one-year appointment)]

[Qualification requirements]
The successful applicant have or will have a PhD degree in a subject relevant to our research, including Computational Biology (bioinformatics, systems biology), Computer Science, Statistics, Pharmacology, Chemistry (computational chemistry, medicinal chemistry) and Biology (structural biology, molecular and cell biology). At least one of the following conditions must be satisfied: 1) a strong background in software engineering and the ability to develop novel biofinformatic software/databases, 2) experience in handling large-scale biological data such as those from transcriptomic and proteomic experiments and 3) the ability to analyze small-molecule compounds and their targets using tools in chemoinformatics and computer-aided drug design.

A good balance of scientific and interpersonal skills will be essential and willingness to tackle interdisciplinary research questions is advantageous.

[Location]
National Institutes of Biomedical Innovation, Health and Nutrition
7-6-8 Saito-Asagi, Ibaraki, Osaka 567-0085, Japan.

[Contract Conditions]
The position is full time and until the end of March 2017 (“kenkyuin”) or March 2019 (“ninkitsuki kenkyuin”) in the first instance, renewable annually upon evaluation (subject to funding availability). Terms and conditions of appointment will apply, including salary and health insurance, in accordance with NIBIOHN’s standard procedures for appointing postdoctoral research associates.

[Start of Employment]
1 April 2016, or as appropriate based on the needs of the successful candidate.
