Anyone with strong bioinformatics skills looking for a job with a fantastic energetic new PI at the University of Arizona?
Today I spent time with a friend and new PI at the University of Arizona talking about her metagenomics projects. She's been advertising for an opening for a computational biologist for quite a while. She tells me that she can't find anyone to fill this position because they are in such high demand and there are so few people who have the skills so they are all getting jobs fast. She is looking for a postdoc or would even support a grad student for their PhD if they wanted to do the work.
Apparently a research associate with bioinformatics expertise can get a job in industry for as much as $90K a year, making it hard to find qualified candidates who want to work in academics labs.
So if you are looking to increase your marketability with a highly valued skill set in popular demand, then computational biology looks to be the way to go.
And if anyone is interested in the position at U of A, email me.
