Visiting Scientist Program
The DOE Joint Genome Institute Visiting Scientist Program (VSP) provides an opportunity for faculty-level scientists who are seeking to build upon their line of scientific inquiry by leveraging JGI experimental, computational, and personnel resources for genomic research and sequence-based science. Projects include de novo generation of genome data, assistance in interpreting and/or building on an existing data set, or the refining of new technology (e.g., single-cell genomics; metagenomics, etc.). Length of stay depends on complexity of the project being considered and availability of data and other resources. Investigators, post docs, and graduate students participating in approved JGI User Projects are also invited to apply for on-site access to JGI resources and capabilities.

Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow in Genomics
The Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute (DOE JGI) in Walnut Creek, CA is soliciting Postdoctoral Fellows working in the general area of genomics. The ideal applicant would directly leverage JGI experimental and/or computational resources for massive-scale genomic research and sequence-based science of relevance to the DOE. The fellowship allows recent graduates with a Ph.D. (or equivalent) to acquire further scientific training at one of the leading facilities for genomic research and to develop professional maturity for independent research. Projects would likely fall into one of the 5 general Programs at the JGI which include Metagenomics, Microbes, Fungi, Plants, and/or Technologies.
Research will be conducted at the DOE JGI with access to the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and offers a rich and dynamic scholarly environment with the latest in genomics and bioinformatics-based research.
The initial appointment is for two years with the possibility of renewal dependent on performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs. Work will be performed at the DOE Joint Genome Institute (JGI) located in Walnut Creek, CA.
To apply, please submit in a single attachment (1) your curriculum vitae, (2) a statement of research interests, and (3) a list of three references. See our Careers page for the position listings. Once you have located the position, click “Apply Now” and follow the online instructions to complete the application process. [Download an information sheet about this program]
Emerging Technologies Opportunity Program (ETOP)
The DOE JGI issues periodic calls for proposals for the Emerging Technologies Opportunities Program (ETOP), inviting the scientific community to partner in providing its users with an evolving set of world-class genomic capabilities.
