Postdoc Openings

Our lab is recruiting creative and motivated postdoctoral scientists interested in doing bioinformatics and genomics research. Postdocs will have the opportunity to contribute to high-profile research projects as well as define their own research agenda.

The lab currently has two broad research areas:

  • The Galaxy project, which builds software and infrastructure to support large-scale computational biology and genomics analysis. Current areas of work include include the development of (a) analysis and data management tools; (b) novel interactive visualizations and user interfaces for analyzing large-scale data; and (c) distributed and high-performance computing for genomics. Galaxy is an open-source project used by thousands of investigators daily across the world.

  • Open-source computational methods and pipelines for analyzing large biomedical datasets, with a focus on methods for cancer genomics and imaging. This work focuses on the development of Galaxy pipelines that can be widely deployed to efficiently process, mine, integrate, and visualize large genomic datasets.

Postdocs should have a PhD and background in one or more of the following areas: genomics, computer science, visualization, data science, scientific computing, or bioinformatics. Because most work in the lab is realized through software development, an interest in programming / software development is critical.

Our lab is located at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, OR. Oregon Health and Science University provides tremendous opportunities for team-oriented computational biology and collaboration with translational scientists and physicians.

Applicants should submit a CV, a statement of research interests or research plan, a link to Github profile or a code sample, and a few references to goecksj@ohsu.edu
