Please pass along, and apologies for double posting.

We have money to support a student till January 2007 (with a salary of about 1000 euro/month). Most of the work will focus on classification/prediction using microarray data. The work will involve both methodological research
(mainly computation and simulation-based) and implementation of existing
approaches using R (and possible development of web-based applications). In addition to the main focus of the job, the student will be encouraged (and expected) to get involved in the many collaborations we have with "wet lab" cancer researchers.

The candidate should have a bachelors or MSc degree in stats or related fields. A genuine interest in applied statistics and statistical consulting,and experience with multivariate methods, linear models, logistic regression, and survival analysis are required. Proficiency with R and knowledge of C/C++ or Fortran are required. Familiarity with Python (and Perl and/or Tcl/Tk) and some experience with development of web-based applications
(CGIs using Python, for example) highly valued. Our machines only run
GNU/Linux (or other Unixes) and thus knowledge of Linux to administer your workstation is needed.

The Bioinformatics Unit is one of the leading bioinformatics group in Spain, part of CNIO, one of the main cancer research institutes in Spain. We have developed a set of widely used web-based microarray data analysis tools, and have extensive computational facilities, including two computing clusters
(with x86s and opterons) that use MPI and OpenMosix. You can check more of
what we do at our group webpage (http://bioinfo.cnio.es) and my own web page
(http://ligarto.org/rdiaz).

Best,
