I would be grateful if you could bring the following job description to the
attention of any BS or MS computer science students who will be entering
the job market this Spring (or other potential applicants). Thank you.
We are seeking a database professional for a position in bioinformatics at
the University of California, Berkeley Drosophila Genome Center. The Center
is a collaboration between the Berkeley Campus and Lawrence Berkeley
National Laboratory whose goal is to determine and analyze the genomic
sequence of the fruitfly Drosophila, a key model organism in genetic
research. Our analysis team is an interdisciplinary group of computer
scientists, biologists , with a mix of full time staff and graduate
students. We analyze genomic sequence data and provide this data to
scientists and users throughout the world.

The successful candidate will be developing critical new technologies using
object/relational databases to provide flexible and biologically meaningful
structure for both primary sequence data and the results of genetic
analysis. The field of genome informatics presents many challenging
problems for database design and implementation. The applicant will have
the opportunity to work under his or her own initiative and should be
strongly motivated. Coordination and communication with other group
members, as well as with outside bioinformatics groups is critical.

The candidate must have a bachelor's degree or better in computer science
with a strong background in current database technology. He or she would
be looking to expand upon this academic base and to gain experience in the
new field of bioinformatics. Opportunities for publication, attending
scientific conferences and taking appropriate courses in the Department of
Molecular and Cell Biology and the Department of Computer Science would be
available. Any prior knowledge of genetics, UNIX, HTML and programming in
C, Java or Perl would be an advantage.

Please contact Gerald Rubin (gerry@fruitfly.berkeley.edu) or Suzanna Lewis
(suzi@fruitfly.berkeley.edu) for more information.
