  • PhD Assistantship in Quantitative Forest Genetics

    A PhD graduate student research assistantship is available with the Cooperative Tree Improvement Program ( at the Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources ( at North Carolina State University, Raleigh NC. The student will work with a team of scientists but primarily with Dr. Fikret Isik. The stipend will be for $24,000 per year. All tuition, health insurance, and fees will be covered. The assistantship will be for three years with possible extension for one more year.  

    The goal of the research is to use genomic data in pine for predictions of genetic merit and to revise current pine breeding strategies in the age of genomics. The candidate will carry out high-throughput sequencing data analysis to discover new genetic variation, test for associations of specific genetic variants with phenotypes of interest, and use modern statistical methods to predict the genetic merit of genotypes under field conditions. The candidate should have some background in statistics and/or quantitative genetics. Computer skills and familiarity with statistical analysis software SAS, R, and ASReml are highly desired. 

    Applicants must apply to the Graduate School for admission ( Prior to formally applying for admission, applicants are encouraged to submit a detailed resume, unofficial transcript, a statement of research interests, and the names and contact information of at least three references to Fikret Isik (

    Review of applications will begin immediately and the position will remain open until filled.

BATTELLE : Bioinformatics Post Doctoral Scientist

Integrity, confidence, discipline and commitment define your career in Battelle's National Security Global Business. Battelle was built on a firm foundation of honesty, integrity, and outstanding service and the work we do in national security impacts lives around the world; whether we're creating armor for military applications, testing a life-saving vaccine, or developing a more efficient hydrogen fuel cell. At Battelle, we reward the best work with more responsibility, positions to grow and develop, and the opportunity to make a positive impact on the world. Are YOU ready for your Next Mission?

Our Applied Biology and Aerosol Technology (ABAT) Product Line is currently seeking a Bioinformatics Post Doctoral Scientist to participate on a multidisciplinary research team focused on human genetic association analyses. This position is located in Columbus, OH.

The Bioinformatics Post Doctoral Scientist will support data management, computational analysis and interpretation of large genomic data sets. We are performing cutting edge genomics research in the areas of human genetics, using the latest next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies combined with high performance computing techniques. Excellent verbal and written communication skills will be essential as the individual will work collaboratively with biologists and statisticians to generate data for publications and presentations at professional meetings.

Applicants must have an advanced degree in bioinformatics, biostatistics, or computational biology with a strong focus on algorithm development, data structures and scientific programming.  In addition, the candidate must be detail-oriented, reliable and conscientious, with exceptional organizational, oral and written communication skills. The candidate must also be capable of independent contribution, and must be able to thrive in a highly collaborative, team-oriented environment.


  • Designing, planning, executing, analyzing, and reporting of experiments rooted in population genetics and genome wide associations
  • Researching, developing and evaluating novel computational approaches for next generation sequencing analysis, data transfer and analysis pipelines, and downstream analysis and visualization
  • Evaluating and integrating community-developed bioinformatics tools
  • Preparing scientific journal publications and presenting at professional meetings
  • Preparing proposals for external funding
  • Train other laboratory staff, as well as to perform certain administrative functions, as necessary, to ensure smooth functioning of experiments and timely distribution of program deliverables. A moderate amount of domestic travel is anticipated.


  • Sole U.S. citizenship, with the ability to obtain and maintain required government security clearances as a condition of employment
  • PhD in bioinformatics, biostatistics, or computational biology or a closely related field and a firm understanding of human genetics and molecular biology
  • A demonstrated proficiency in analysis of large population-based genetic repositories and analysis of NGS data
  • Experience with UNIX/LINUX, including shell scripting and proficiency in a scripting language (e.g., Perl or Python)
