NCRIS has funded the ALA to work closely with two other major NCRIS capabilities, the Australian Phenomics Network (APN) and the Australian Plant Phenomics Facility (APPF).

The APN is a network of research centres providing Australian and international researchers with mouse models for the study of human and animal disease.

The APPF has two nodes exploiting recent advances in robotics, imaging and computing to enable sensitive, high throughput analyses to be made of plant growth and function.

The ALA is providing some of the core information infrastructure to enable these capabilities to organise large quantities of data and images on their study organisms and to make these resources accessible to researchers in Australia and overseas.

Two positions are being advertised for bioinformaticians to work with the APN and the APPF to explore their data management requirements and to work with the ALA to develop appropriate services to support these communities.

The APN is seeking a bioinformatician to be based at ANU in Canberra. See the advertisement and documentation. The closing date for applications is 24 September 2008.

The APPF is seeking a bioinformatician to be based at the University of Adelaide. See the advertisement and documentation. The closing date for applications is 19 September 2008.

These positions are now closed.
