Bioinformatics positions at Monsanto
We seek several highly motivated and experienced computational
biologists to work closely with molecular biologists and multi-
disciplinary drug discovery project teams. This position will involve
providing bioinformatic analysis to address therapeutic challenges
in inflammation, cardiovascular diseases and oncology. The challenge
is to integrate and analyze large, complex data sets, such as sequences,
array-based gene expression studies, human genetic studies and
model organism studies. Expertise in standard bioinformatics
tools (e.g. BLAST, GCG tools etc.) and any of the following areas:
transcriptional profiling analysis, signal-transduction,
biochemical and regulatory networks, HMMs and profile
methods, human genetics (SNPs etc.), and protein fold
recognition, homology modeling, will be considered. Candidates
will also be expected to develop independent research projects within
Searle's therapeutic focus. Successful candidates will possess a Ph.D.
with postdoctoral experience or demonstrated equivalent experience.
Some experience in scientific programming skills, including scripting
in PERL, Python, and or SQL/Oracle in a UNIX operating environment,
as well as good communication and writing skills are essential.
