investigators, and participate in methodological research in statistics or bioinformatics
motivated by the projects at hand. The position is available starting September 2003 or
later. There is some flexibility on the duration, although a duration of more than one year is
preferable. The candidate will work in close connection with the statisticians in the
genomics working group.
This position offers excellent opportunities for developing skills in
bioinformatics, including additional formal training within the new bioinformatics curriculum.
Interested candidates should email a CV and optionally any original
