CSIRO Animal, Food and Health Sciences are looking for an enthusiastic
Postdoctoral Fellow or research engineer who will work as part of a
growing and dynamic multidisciplinary team to develop novel
computational methodology and software for applications in genomics and
bioinformatics. The successful candidate will work under the supervision
of a Systems Engineer / Computational Biologist and use their own
creativity to develop noise suppression and complexity reduction
techniques for genomic datasets, and accommodate these in a software
package to be used by bioinformaticians and biologists.

The candidate will contribute to the development work in MATLAB, and
will be chiefly responsible for writing the accommodating software
packages. This is a fairly complex project with a sequence of
deliverables spread across a wide timeline. This project will also be a
platform to develop dynamical systems theory based approaches to systems
biology. This will include an analytical integration of various genomic
data types (e.g. differential expression, epigenetics, copy number,
genetics) to establish an understanding of biological function at a
typically higher, more global level which is pertinent to the research

Location: Sydney, NSW

Salary: $75K to $85K (plus up to 15.4% superannuation)

Tenure: 3 years

Ref No: NSW12/03084

To be successful, you will need:

    Demonstrated originality, creativity and innovation in solving
problems and excellent task management skills.
    Demonstrated skills in signal processing, system identification and
feature selection.
    Experience and competency in Python/NumPy, Matlab and
object-orientated software design.
    Proven ability to work independently and as part of an
interdisciplinary team and to communicate across multiple disciplines.
