  • The primary mission of the Center for Computational Biology is to create new computational frameworks that will enable scientists to analyze the large and complex data sets that are being generated by new experimental technologies.  Tremendous opportunities for discovery are emerging in the biological and biomedical sciences, as well as in traditional physical and social sciences, but they will require the combined power of theory, data analysis, and simulation. In the biomedical sciences, for example, researchers are being confronted by an explosion of information from genome sequencing, gene expression profiling, proteomics, multi-electrode recording, and multiple high-resolution imaging modalities.  The focus remains on problems arising in biophysical modeling, genomics, neuroscience, and structural biology, collaborating closely with experimental colleagues.

    The Research Scientist will report to the Deputy Director for Genomics and will be responsible for research on analyzing functional genomic data, including the development of novel algorithms and software, as well as other potential data-intensive computing projects in in the Center for Computational Biology.

    This position will be based, and have a principle office or workspace, at the foundation.



  • Ph.D in Computer Science and relevant postdoctoral experience


  • Minimum of 5 years of experience in a related field
