Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow in Genomics
The Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute (DOE JGI) in Walnut Creek, CA is soliciting Postdoctoral Fellows working in the general area of genomics. The ideal applicant would directly leverage JGI experimental and/or computational resources for massive-scale genomic research and sequence-based science of relevance to the DOE. The fellowship allows recent graduates with a Ph.D. (or equivalent) to acquire further scientific training at one of the leading facilities for genomic research and to develop professional maturity for independent research. Projects would likely fall into one of the 5 general Programs at the JGI which include Metagenomics, Microbes, Fungi, Plants, and/or Technologies.
Research will be conducted at the DOE JGI with access to the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and offers a rich and dynamic scholarly environment with the latest in genomics and bioinformatics-based research.
Introduction to the Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute
The U.S. Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute, supported by the DOE Office of Science, is committed to advancing genomics in support of DOE missions related to clean energy generation and environmental characterization and cleanup. DOE JGI, headquartered in Walnut Creek, CA, provides integrated high-throughput sequencing and computational analysis that enable systems-based scientific approaches to these challenges. With over 250 full-time employees (including Research, Informatics, Production, and Operations professionals), the JGI is housed in 80,000 sq. ft. facility in Walnut Creek, CA (San Francisco Bay Area) and has an annual budget of $70M. Detailed information about the Joint Genome Institute scientific programs can be found here.
The initial appointment is for two years with the possibility of renewal dependent on performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs. Work will be performed at the DOE Joint Genome Institute (JGI) located in Walnut Creek, CA.
