Group Leader - Bioinformatics/Systems Biology
The Computational Biology Unit (CBU) at Uni BCCS (Bergen Center for  
Computational Science) has been established to conduct top-level  
research in bioinformatics, and to serve functional genomics research  
in Norway with relevant training and services. CBU is tightly  
integrated and co-located with several departments at the University  
of Bergen.

CBU is searching for an additional group leader. The group leader will  
carry out research in the field of computational biology/  
bioinformatics and contribute to the overall objectives of CBU. The  
group leader should have a PhD and post-doctoral experience including  
a solid publication record in a relevant subject. Candidates will be  
evaluated with emphasis on scientific quality and potential and their  
ability to supervise and carry out research projects. The research  
profile of the candidate should be within a relevant area for CBU.  
Candidates with profiles in direction of systems biology are  
especially encouraged to apply. The group leader will direct a  
research group consisting of PhD and post-doctoral scientists.

The CBU and its partners currently have bioinformatics research  
activities in the fields of protein biophysics, molecular modeling and  
protein dynamics, transcriptional regulation, microarray and  
proteomics bioinformatics, and genome assembly and annotation.  
Activity has been initiated towards integrative bioinformatics and  
systems biology. There are excellent opportunities for collaboration  
with the molecular biological and biomedical as well as mathematical  
and informatics research groups in Bergen.

Research, a research company wholly owned by the University of Bergen.  
CBU is partner in the Molecular and Computational Biology research  
school (http://www.mcb.uib.no) and coordinates the bioinformatics  
technology platform for the national functional genomics programme  
(FUGE) in Norway.

Salary and professional resources are internationally competitive.  
Please send your CV, your ten most relevant publications, and a  
detailed statement of research interests to Professor Inge Jonassen(inge at ii.uib.no
