Subject: Search for Executive Director, UCSD Center for Bioinformatics Analysis
Dear Jonathan Eisen,

I am writing to seek your assistance in identying a director of a new center being established at UC San Diego, the Center for Bioinformatic Analysis. This center will establish a world-class program of bioinformatics research, collaboration and service. Its mission is to develop and apply technology for integrating diverse ‘omics data sets and to establish the means by which this information can be translated to the clinic to promote human health and prevent disease. To lead the Center for Bioinformatic Analysis we are looking for an Executive Director who has a PhD in Bioinformatics or related discipline with substantial team management experience in industry or academia. S/he will be responsible for the overall planning, function and long-term support of the Center. Key responsibilities involve interacting with UC San Diego life sciences faculty and engaging them in collaborative research projects; management of Center staff dedicated to collaboration or software development; reporting to UC San Diego faculty leadership and advisory boards; establishing the Center business model and lead in outreach and fundraising efforts. Under the leadership of the Director, the Center will be staffed by several dozen bioinformatics personnel that carry out the key functions of the center. I would greatly appreciate it if you could forward this notice and alert any candidates who might be interested. The job application is online at the UCSD web portal: Thanks for your help!

To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
