A Post-Doctoral Position in
Computational Biology or Bioinformatics
in Bioinformatics Center, Kyoto University, Japan
A post-doctoral position is available at the Bioinformatics Center at
Kyoto University. Located in Japan, the research center is famous for
a metabolic pathway database called the Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes
and Genomes (KEGG).
The center seeks a candidate who will be engaged in research aimed at
developing computational methods for reconstructing metabolic pathways
from various forms of existing biological data. The methods to be
developed should be based upon statistics, machine learning, data
mining, numerical computation, algorithmics or combinatorics.
The candidate should have a Ph.D. and solid technical experience in
one of the above fields or another field in computer science or a
similar quantitative area of study. The applicant should be
enthusiastic and energetic in doing new research in bioinformatics and
should have sufficient programming skills in C, C++ or Java.
The position is for one year until as late as March 2007.
Kyoto University's Bioinformatics Center is situated 15 km south of
downtown Kyoto and 40 km north of the center of Nara, and is thus
conveniently located near Japan's two most famous historical cities.
The location is ideal for you to both enjoy Japan's traditional beauty
and to devote yourself to research in bioinformatics.
Please send your detailed curriculum vitae (including list of
publications, brief summary of your past work, and at least three
