Greetings, The biocluster list has a great following and I wanted to tap into it = to see if there were any interested individuals interested in joining our = group. We have a position open in the bioinformatics department for an = admin/engineer to help support our systems. Below is a job description. = Any interested parties should email me directly. John C. Morris Manager/Principal Research Engineer Bioinformatics Technology Operations Genomics Wyeth Research firstname.lastname@example.org=20 Bioinformatics Staff Scientist/Systems Administrator Wyeth Bioinformatics is seeking an experienced Scientist/Systems Administra= tor to contribute to developing, maintaining, and administering a = Bioinformatic Analysis Infrastructure and high performance technical = computing environment used to support ongoing research. The candidate is = expected to interact extensively with Bioinformatics Staff and Discovery = Research scientists and to enable their research efforts through supporting= the usage and development of the Wyeth Bioinformatics Infrastructure. Major responsibilities include: =B7 Administrate GCG/Accelrys user accounts and databases. =B7 Construct, daily upgrade, and maintain internal biological = sequence databases. =B7 Provide support for existing Bioinformatic sequence/structural = analysis applications and software development environments through = software installation, configuration and usage of strong administrative = programming skills =B7 Work with developers, bioinformaticians, vendors, and scientific = community to investigate, develop and implement application technology and = systems to support enterprise Genomic/Bioinformatic research. This is to = include but not be limited to Open Source software (apache, perl, tomcat, = etc), bioinformatics tools and applications (BLAST, FASTA, etc) and = commercial systems (GeneLogic, Accelrys, LSF, LIMS, etc). =B7 Develop/Support the establishment of distributed resource = management system and compute cluster for Bioinformatic tools and = applications.=20 =B7 Work closely with Bioinformatics staff and Discovery Research = Scientists to advise them, and support Bioinformatic application usage to = achieve research goals.=20 =B7 Comply with research, corporate, and industry guidelines and = policies.
