Postdoctoral Position

A post-doctoral position is available at Bio-Knowledge Engineering Research Laboratory of the Bioinformatics Center at Kyoto University. This laboratory has developed unique, cutting-edge data mining/machine learning techniques for complex data in real world applications, particularly molecular biology. Along this line, the laboratory seeks a candidate who will be engaged in research on mining new knowledge from multiple data sources in biology, especially those related with genes and small chemical compounds.

The candidate should have a Ph.D. and solid technical experience in a field in computer science or a similar quantitative area of study, such as machine learning, data mining, statistics, algorithmics, combinatorics, and numerical computation. The applicant should be enthusiastic and energetic in doing new research in bioinformatics and should have sufficient programming skills in C, C++ or Java.

The position is a one-year basis but renewable by mutual agreement.

Kyoto University's Bioinformatics Center is situated 15 km south of downtown Kyoto and 40 km north of the center of Nara, and is thus conveniently located near Japan's two most famous historical cities. The location is ideal for you to both enjoy Japan's traditional beauty and to devote yourself to research in bioinformatics.

Please send your detailed curriculum vitae (including a list of publications, brief summary of your past work, and at least three references) to:
