PhD , POST-DOCTORAL and TECHNICIAN POSITIONS IN COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY
Genomics of Gene Expression – Conesa Lab
Centro de Investigación Principe Felipe, Valencia
The Genomics of Gene Expression Lab, lead by Ana Conesa, is a multidisciplinary
team interested in the development of computational approaches to study
functional aspects of gene expression and omics data. We work extensively in the
data integration from different types of NGS-based technologies and create
algorithms and software for the scientific community. Some examples are
Blast2GO, Paintomics, maSigPro, NOISeq, etc.
We are looking for talented and motivated researchers to join our team within a
recently funded project of the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness. The
project aims to investigate novel regulatory and functional aspects of
alternative transcript isoforms using computational methods and third
generation genomics data, such as long-read sequencing technologies, multi-
omics datasets and single-cell genomics experiments. In addition, we seek an
informatics technician to support the computational and software infrastructure
of the lab.
Are you our candidate? PhD candidates should have a Master in Biotechnology,
Bioinformatics or similar, while Post-docs should have completed a PhD in
Bioinformatics or Biostatistics. Experience with the modeling of protein-protein
interactions and/or signaling & metabolic pathways will be highly valued.
Candidates should have a good knowledge of Genetics and Molecular Biology, be
skillful in programming (R, Python or Java) and fluent in English. For the
Technician position we require a degree in computer science and experience
with high performance computing applications.
What do we offer? A 4 year PhD, 2 year Postdoc and 1+ year Technician
contract within an excellent environment for scientific development, that
includes an international multidisciplinary team, dry and wet lab resources for
method development and validation, and different options for short training
periods at European and US labs. Tentative start date: between October 2016
and January 2017.
Are you interested? Send your CV before 1 st of August 2016, together with a
motivation letter and 2 recommendation letters, or any question you may have
to Ana Conesa firstname.lastname@example.org.
