Seeking geeks interested in bioinformatics

bybokov4y22nd Jun 201513 comments


I work at a small but feisty research team whose focus is biomedical informatics, i.e. mining biomedical data. Especially anonymized hospital records pooled over multiple healthcare networks. My personal interest is ultimately life-extension, and my colleagues are warming up to the idea as well. But the short-term goal that will be useful many different research areas is building infrastructure to massively accelerate hypothesis testing on and modelling of retrospective human data.


We have a job posting here (permanent, non-faculty, full-time, benefits):


If you can program, want to work in an academic research setting, and can relocate to San Antonio, TX, I invite you to apply. Thanks.

Note: The first step of the recruitment process will be a coding challenge, which will include an arithmetical or string-manipulation problem to solve in real-time using a language and developer tools of your choice.

edit: If you tried applying and were unable to access the posting, it's because the link has changed, our HR has an automated process that periodically expires the links for some reason. I have now updated the job post link.
