Application deadline: February 1 st
The Blanchoud lab (University of Fribourg) and the Tiozzo lab (CNRS, Sorbonne University) are offering one year SNF funded post-doc position on a project that aims to survey horizontal gene transfers in Tunicates, the sister group of vertebrates. In particular, the candidate will perform a coherent and integrated analysis of all currently available genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic data to estimate the extent of functional foreign genetic material and their potential role in these marine chordates.
We are looking for a highly motivated bioinformatician with the following qualifications:
- PhD degree in Bioinformatics, Computer Science, or a related field
- Strong experience in the development of bioinformatic analysis workflows
- Proficiency in suitable programming languages (e.g. Python, R)
- Familiarity with HPC systems
- Background in evolutionary biology and/or biochemistry would be a plus but is not required
The successful candidate will start at the latest by February 15th 2020, for a duration of 12 months. The project will be mainly held in Fribourg (Switzerland). However, short-term mobility to Villefranche-sur-Mer (France) will be considered.
Please submit your letter of interest, CV, references, and a relevant sample of code by email to Simon Blanchoud (firstname.lastname@example.org) and/or Stefano Tiozzo (email@example.com).
