Dear Colleagues: 

The Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of Texas
Health Science Center, San Antonio (http://deb.uthscsa.edu/index.html) and
the Computational Biology Initiative at the University of Texas at San
Antonio have a new faculty opening for a bioinformatics statistician.  This
position is related to a major new joint multi-disciplinary bioinformatics
and computational biology initiative involving the University of Texas
Health Science Center, and the University of Texas San Antonio
(http://www.cbi.utsa.edu/about) <http://www.cbi.utsa.edu/about)> . Based in
a new computational biology facility, the initiative provides both technical
staff as well as substantial computational resources to establish and
nurture collaborations between biologists and quantitative scientists in
projects ranging from biological data analysis to system modeling and
Duties include conducting methodological and applied statistical research in
bioinformatics.  As the initiative also includes a substantial effort at the
level of undergraduate and graduate education, duties will also include
curriculum development and teaching. Candidates will be expected to
participate in the development of interdisciplinary programs and grant
initiatives in bioinformatics, and collaborative investigations with
investigators in medical, translational and basic science application areas;
e.g., microarray analyses, data mining, gene networks, etc.

We are seeking candidates with a record of methodological and collaborative
research in bioinformatics (see the attached Position Announcement for more
details).  Please share this information with any colleagues who would be
interested our position.
