Postdoc position in computer science or bioinformatics with focus on Hadoop for large scale sequence analysis

at the Department of Information Technology
Application no later than 2012-10-15. UFV-PA 2012/2414

Background: The emerge of high-throughput technologies such as next-generation sequencing has turned life science into a data-intensive domain, which places high demands on an e-infrastructure in order to be analysed. UPPMAX ( is UppsalaUniversity’s center for high performance storage and computations that via the project UPPNEX ( offers resources for storage, computations, software and user support in bioinformatics and primarily sequence analysis. We are now seeking a Postdoc to evaluate how technologies like cloud computing and Hadoop can complement the current infrastructure and offer improved services in storage and analysis of bioscience data.
