RNAseq. Candidates will support a new national initiative, headquartered on the Juniata
campus, to incorporate massively-parallel sequencing technologies into the undergraduate
curriculum and research ( Concurrently, 25% of time will be spent on
functional genomics research in the lab of a sponsoring faculty member at Penn State, a
leading institution for bioinformatics research. Applicants with an earned Ph.D. (required)
and post-doctoral and teaching experience (preferred) should submit 1) a brief statement
of teaching experience, philosophy, and interests; 2) a succinct two-page summary of
research interests; 3) a curriculum vitae; 4) undergraduate and graduate academic
