National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences
Research Triangle Park, North Carolina
The Biostatistics Branch is seeking scientists in
Bioinformatics/Computational Biology. Candidates will be considered for
Senior Investigator, Tenure-Track Investigator or Staff Scientist, depending
upon qualifications (unless they explicitly specify a particular type of
As a Senior Investigator, the incumbent will develop and direct a strong
research program including both investigator-initiated and collaborative
research in the general area of bioinformatics and computational biology,
particularly as related to biological networks, analysis of high-dimensional
data, proteomics, comparative and functional genomics, gene expression,
statistical genetics, and epigenetics. Responsibilities would also include
assembling and managing a bioinformatics team to provide bioinformatics
infrastructure and innovative data analysis approaches in support of
intramural research aimed at understanding biological responses to
environmental stressors in the context of cell biology, animal toxicology,
clinical research and epidemiology.
The Senior Investigator will provide leadership in bioinformatics to new
staff and to existing staff, consisting of a staff scientist and
tenure-track investigator. Ideal candidates will have a proven history of
individual and collaborative research excellence and an international
reputation in a specific area within the broad general of bioinformatics and
computational biology, with strong focus on biological applications.
The Tenure-Track investigator should have a strong publication record and
robust and original research plans in the general area of bioinformatics
noted above. 
The Staff Scientist will work with the National Toxicology Program to assist
in the identification of genes governing biological responses to
environmental exposures, the evaluation and interpretation of biological
response data from high-throughput toxicity screening assays, and the
analysis of gene expression data from microarray studies. The ideal
applicant will have experience in both bioinformatics and statistical
genetics methodology.
All applicants must possess a Ph.D. or equivalent. Salary is commensurate
with experience and level of accomplishments. Applications from women and
members of minority groups are particularly welcome. To apply, submit a
curriculum vita, bibliography, brief statement of research interests and
arrange for three letters of recommendation to the address below by January
