JOB DESCRIPTION AND POSITION REQUIREMENTS:

The Penn State Animal Diagnostic Laboratory (ADL) at University Park is focused on using next-generation sequencing (NGS), and computational/bioinformatics approaches for developing and validating innovative diagnostic tests and surveillance platforms for bacterial and viral pathogens of One Health importance. Briefly, the project involves application of whole genome sequencing to study genomes, metagenomes to identify and characterize pathogens in clinical samples with an emphasis on virulence determinants, bacterial serotype determination, identify and catalog antimicrobial resistance genes, and decipher the molecular epidemiology of bacterial and viral pathogens as it relates to disease outbreaks.  Computational/bioinformatics approaches and mathematical modelling of infectious diseases are also included in the overall project.

Applications are sought from highly motivated individuals with a strong interest in genomics and bioinformatics of infectious diseases. Specific responsibilities include,1) Develop and validate a metagenomics approach to identify bacterial and viral agents in clinical samples, and 2) Perform data analysis of genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics projects. Hands-on laboratory experience in all aspects of NGS including library preparation, operating next generation sequencing machines (ILLUMINA) and bioinformatic analysis of genomic data is essential. The successful applicant must have the ability to plan, execute, interpret, summarize, and troubleshoot independent research and collaborate effectively with members of a research team from ADL and other diagnostic laboratories in Pennsylvania. Applications must be submitted electronically through the Penn State Job Application Website https://hr.psu.edu/careers and must include a cover letter that summarizes relevant experience and reasons for interest in the job, along with a CV that includes contact information for three references (name, position title, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address).
