8 Postdoc positions

I don't want to spam anything, but since this is my own web page, I guess I can advertise as much as I'd like. I was just passed an email from a colleague at the Plant Science department at UBC, where they're currently looking for eight post doc positions: mainly people who have or are interested in gaining Illumina sequence processing experience.

I figured this is noteworthy for several reasons:
  1. There is a growing demand for next-gen trained bioinformaticians, which looks good for the future career prospects of anyone in the Next-gen Sequencing/Genomics field (though this is hardly a surprise),
  2. Genomics is beginning to expand out of the narrow {yeast | human | C.elegans | etc} model organism fields into areas such as plant science, where it will have a huge impact. (going mainstream is always a good thing for a field of science, in my humble opinion.)
  3. Some of the positions will put bioinformaticians into key positions where they become the cornerstone of research projects, which is a far cry from the "bioinformaticians as a service" role that's been popular in many research settings.

Anyhow, I can highly recommend at least one of these positions, having worked with the professor before, so if anyone is interested in the email, I'd be happy to forward along the advertisements.
