Bioinformatician post at NERC Environmental Bioinformatics Centre (NEBC)

Anyone interested in a bioinformatics post in the Oxford area?

A job has come up in my old group at the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology. Details linked here.

Looks ideal for a person with an interest in NGS and metagenomics though, working with both the NERC Environmental Bioinformatics Centre (NEBC) and the NERC Biomolecular Analysis Facility (NBAF).

Questions regarding the role may be addressed to Dawn Field and Tim Booth via the group address: admin@nebc.nerc.ac.uk.  Closing date for applications is June 3rd.

Announcing a Bioinformatics Kblog writeathon

(Reposted from Knowledgeblog.org)

The Knowledgeblog team is holding a ‘writeathon’ to produce content for a tutorial-focused bioinformatics kblog.

The event will be taking place in Newcastle on the 21st June 2011.  We’re looking for volunteer contributors who would like to join us in Newcastle on the day, or would like to contribute tutorial material remotely to the project.

We will be sending invites shortly to a few invited contributors but are looking for a total of 15 to 20 participants in total.

Travel and accomodation costs (where appropriate) can be reimbursed.

If you would like to contribute tutorial material on microarray analysis, proteomics, next-generation sequencing, bioinformatics workflow development, bioinformatics database resources, network analysis or data integration and recieve a citable DOI for your work please get in touch with us at admin@knowledgeblog.org
