The Australian government has funded three inter-related projects under
the umbrella title, Integrated Biological Systems:

 

*	The Australian Phenomics Network (APN) - a network of research
centres providing Australian and international researchers with mouse
models for the study of human and animal disease.
*	The Australian Plant Phenomics Facility (APPF) - two nodes
exploiting recent advances in robotics, imaging and computing to enable
sensitive, high throughput analyses to be made of plant growth and
function.
*	The Atlas of Living Australia (ALA) - a network of institutions
and agencies working to develop tools and services for managing
information on Australian biodiversity and research organisms.

 

The ALA is providing some of the core information infrastructure to
enable the APN and APPF to organise large quantities of data and images
on their study organisms and to make these resources accessible to
researchers in Australia and overseas.

 

Two positions are now advertised for bioinformaticians to work with the
APN and the APPF to explore their data management requirements and to
work with the ALA to develop appropriate services to support these
communities.

 

The APN is seeking a bioinformatician to be based at Australian National
University in Canberra.  The closing date for applications is 24
September 2008.  See the following materials:
