To support a major expansion of the laboratory, we are currently recruiting several postdoctoral fellows with expertise in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, as well as new graduate students through the Boston College PhD program in biology.


Software Engineer Position

We currently have an open software engineering position funded by NIH’s Big Data Initiative. The position will entail development of web based methods for accessing large-scale, genomic data. Additionally, the applicant will have the opportunity to develop computational and statistical sequence analysis tools for a variety of platforms including UNIX. Bachelor's degree in a technical or scientific field, or comparable experience is required. Candidates should have a strong programming background with experience in multiple languages, including web programming, preferably HTML5 and JavaScript-heavy applications.

Please send your resume and any links (e.g. github, stackoverflow, biostars) that give a better idea of your interests to

Postdoctoral Positions

Our primary interest is in computational scientists with a strong interest in biological / genomic research. Postdocs in the laboratory will be expected to lead the development of high-performance sequence data analysis software, and to participate in collaborative sequencing data analysis projects that drive tool development. They will work closely with data producers, experimental collaborators and colleagues at sequencing machine manufacturing companies.

A doctorate in science or engineering (e.g. Biology, Genetics, Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, or Electrical Engineering) is required. Candidates with strong, demonstrated software development expertise (especially C/C++) are preferred, but individuals who have experience with Bioinformatics programming using e.g. PERL or PYTHON will also be considered. Successful candidates will be joining researchers in a growing, vigorous Computational Biology program on the Boston College Campus ( We offer competitive salaries for qualified applicants.

Applicants should submit their curriculum vitae, description of research interests, and contact information for three referees. Positions are available immediately. Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. Materials should be sent to Diane Butera at

PhD Program in Computational Biology

This laboratory is one of the participants of the newly forming Computational Biology Program at Boston College. The department has the following faculty members with research programs involved in computational biology and bioinformatics research:

Peter Clote

Gabor Marth

Michelle Meyer

Tim van Opijnen


Positions for qualified undergraduates may be available. Students working in the laboratory are often have taken Bioinfomatics, Biology, and Computer Science related coursework. If you are interested, please contact Dr. Marth.
