UC Davis Genome Center job: #Bioinformatics Core Manager #Genomics

You know you want this job:

The UC Davis Genome Center integrates experimental and computational approaches to address

key problems at the forefront of genomics. The Center is housed in a new research building with state-of-the-art computational and laboratory facilities. The Center comprises 23 research faculty and five technology service cores that serve the whole campus. The faculty and

service cores contribute to an internationally recognized program in genomics research at Davis, building on and enhancing the unique strengths and unmatched breadth of the life sciences on the UC Davis campus.

The Bioinformatics Service Core provides a broad range of services in computational biology and bioinformatics on a recharge basis to diverse research groups on campus. The Core is responsible for providing consulting, software and access to computational resources to address needs in all areas of bioinformatics, including data acquisition and curation, database construction and integration, sequence analysis, molecular structure and network analyses, expression profile analysis and statistics.

The Genome Center invites applications for the position of
Bioinformatics Core Manager. The incumbent will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the Bioinformatics Service Core. This includes but is not limited to management of staff and computational
infrastructure and budgetary aspects of the core. The manager will be responsible for ongoing assessment of computational needs, including staff, hardware, software and databases required to perform the multiple types of bioinformatics analyses for cutting- edge genomics research. The manager also will be responsible for recruiting and training staff, assessing the campus-wide needs for bioinformatics services and prioritizing their provision, representation of the Genome Center at scientific conferences and the writing and submission of grant proposals to maintain the core with state-of-the-art resources.

This position requires a Ph.D. or equivalent in a relevant area, such as Computer Science, Statistics, Applied Mathematics or Computational or Mathematical Biology. Applicants should have experience in the management of a production bioinformatics facility and broad technical knowledge sufficient to supervise technical staff, troubleshoot problems, acquire and maintain hardware, refine bioinformatics approaches, and advise faculty and their research groups.

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
