Postdoctoral fellow in Genomics / Computational Biology

We have one postdoctoral positions open for 2018. Please find detailed information and link to the application  system (MyNetwork) following the link below. Application deadline is January 3rd 2018.

The available postdoctoral position concerns developing and applying novel genomic and computational approaches to study ribosome dynamics and RNA metabolism, and its impact to cell-to-cell phenotypic heterogeneity. The candidate will focus on the computational analysis of newly developed methods to study ribosome dynamics, mRNA degradation and tRNA processing (e.g. Pelechano et al. Cell 2015). The candidate is expected to contribute his/her own ideas to the common goal of understanding how RNA biology and post-transcriptional regulation contributes to the appearance of differences across clonal populations of cells. The candidate will perform original research in genomics and computational biology, and acquire the required experimental and computational skills necessary for the completion of the project. As a model organism the candidate will use budding yeast (S. cerevisiae) and human cancer cell lines. The candidate will be responsible for implementing analytical pipelines and integrate different kinds of genomic data to answer biologically relevant questions. The successful candidate will take a strong lead in the experimental design, and collaborate with other team members. The candidate is expected to communicate the scientific results by writing up scientific papers and attending scientific meetings. The ideal candidate is also expected to participate in the general duties of the team and to effectively communicate with scientists of very diverse backgrounds in a highly interdisciplinary and international environment.
