Research Assistant position in Bioinformatics.

We have one open position for a junior Research Assistant in Bioinformatics. Please find detailed information and link to the application  system (MyNetwork) following the link below. Application deadline is September 8th 2019.

The available research assistant position concerns contributing to the development of computational approaches to study ribosome dynamics and RNA metabolism. 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 will work together with PhD students and postdoctoral researchers in the lab and 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. The candidate will contribute to the implementation of analytical pipelines and integrate different kinds of genomic data to answer biologically relevant questions. The successful candidate will show scientific initiative 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
