Una Smith una at LANL.GOV
Tue Jul 3 15:21:15 CDT 2001


An exciting bioinformatics position is now open in my research group,
Theoretical Biology and Biophysics, at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
The position is being advertized at two pay scales (both ads below);
applicants should respond to ONE of the two ads.  The two pay scales
are US $42,000 to $71,000 (TECH 6) and $52,000 to $88,000 (TECH 7).

The DEADLINE is this Friday, 6 JULY 2001.  Submit a resume or CV to
the LANL Human Resources website:

        http://www.hr.lanl.gov/EmploymentResources/jobs/jobs.stm

To apply, you must use the web site.

You may e-mail a copy (plain ascii or PDF) to hiv-jobs at t10.lanl.gov,
but doing so does not count as a formal application.

Regards,

TECH 6 (job # 017491):
SUMMARY: Database programmer for the HIV molecular immunology
database.  Position requires implementaion for data retrieval and
updates, and programming for analysis of HIV DNA sequence variation in
the context of the human host immune response.  Retrieve and employ
pre-existing interpretive molecular sequence analysis software.
Position will involve work on several projects: the continuing HIV
sequence database and HIV molecular immunology databases, as well as
newer projects exploring the immune response to HIV.  Will help
create a new database to integrate and study human genetic variation,
viral variation, and disease and immunity based on data from a large
cohort of HIV+ individuals from South Africa.  Assistance with the
creation of an annual hard copy publication that summarizes the
database information will also be required.  Will work closely with
biologists in the design and implementation of the database and
software.

Required Skills:
Programming skills in either C, C++, or PERL.  Ability to translate
the database material to a user friendly interface on the web.

Desired Skills:
Serious interest in biology, human pathogens, and/or bioinformatics.
Demonstrated knowledge of JAVA and SQL database experience.
Demonstrated Knowledge of UNIX, PC and MAC system administration
skills.  Prior experience with graphics or statistical packages.

Understanding of basic biological concepts concerning DNA and protein
sequences and immunology.  Prior experience working with raw sequence
data, translating the data into alignments, and phylogenetic analysis.
Experience working effectively in a small team environment.

Education:  College level course work in programming, data structures
or a combination of course work and related experience is required.
College level course work in cell biology or molecular genetics is
desirable.

TECH 7 (job # 017492):
SUMMARY: Database manager for the HIV molecular immunology database.
Position requires development of innovative solutions for data
retrieval and updates, and programming for analysis of HIV DNA sequence
variation in the context of the human host immune response. Develop
tools to facilitate integration of sequence data and immunological data
and interpretation of vaccine studies on an ongoing basis in response
to the needs of the HIV research community.  Retrieve and employ
pre-existing interpretive molecular sequence analysis software.
Position will involve work on several projects: the continuing HIV
sequence database and HIV molecular immunology databases, as well as
newer projects exploring the immune response to HIV.  Will be
responsible for creating a new database to integrate and study human
genetic variation, viral variation, and disease and immunity based on
data from a large cohort of HIV+ individuals from South Africa.
Assistance with the creation of an annual hard copy publication that
summarizes the database information will also be required.  Requires
interaction with a wide variety of people, including investigators
from HIV laboratories throughout the world who collaborate with our
group, and Los Alamos staff scientist, postdocs, graduate research
assistants.  Will work closely with biologists in the design and
implementation of the database and software.

Required Skills:
Extensive knowledge and programming skills in either C, C++, or PERL.
Ability to translate the database material to a user friendly interface
on the web. Satistics or analysis background for basic research based on
the database.

Desired Skills:
Serious interest in biology, human pathogens, and/or bioinformatics.
Demonstrated knowledge of JAVA and SQL database experience.
Demonstrated Knowledge of UNIX, PC and MAC system administration
skills.  Prior experience with graphics or statistical packages.
