Hi, the ad below might be of interest to some. Cheers, Michael

The Bioinformatics group of the Biotechnological Center of the
University of Technology TU Dresden invites applications for

1 Project leader
3 PostDoc/PreDoc positions
1 Software architect
1 Web programmer is a novel, ontology-based literature search engine for
the life sciences, which already attracts thousands of world-wide
users since its launch 10 months ago. As part of two projects funded
with 1.500.000 EUR, we are setting up a research programme covering
the following topics:

- design and evolution of bio-ontologies
- textmining to extract protein interactions, and
  ontology terms from free text
- grid computing for bioinformatics
- analysis of high-throughput micro-arry and RNAi data
- biomedical applications in particular cell-cycle and pancreas
  tumour, endocytosis and infectious diseases, osteoclast
  differentiation and bone diseases, membrane proteins.

Project members will cooperate closely with biomedical researchers in
Dresden, project partners in Dresden, Edinburgh, London, Manchester,
Nice, the World-Wide Web Consortium W3C in Boston, and Transinsight, a
Dresden-based spin-off company. The group has access to a unique
supercomputing infrastructure with over 3000 CPUs and 2TB of shared
memory. The above mentioned applications are pursed in cooperation
with research groups from the Biotec, the Max-Plank Institute for
Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, and the medical faculty of TU

The bioinformatics group is co-located in the Biotec together with
other groups in genomics, proteomics, biophysics, tissue engineering,
and cellular machines as well as 20 companies with some 200 members of
staff. The Biotec will form part of a new cluster together with the
60.000.000 EUR center for regenerative therapies, which has been
recently awarded to Dresden by the DFG.

The following requirements have to be met by candidates:

Project leader: PhD in computational or life science, strong
publication track record, project management experience.

PostDoc: PhD in computational or life science, strong publication
track record

PreDoc: Master in computational or life science, experience relevant
for project

Software architect: Profound programming skills in Java, distributed
computing, design patterns, server programming

Web programmer: Profound programming skills in Java, MySQL, Cocoon,
Tomcat, Apache

Dresden is a beautiful City in the East of Germany. Known as "Florence
