The Experimental Algorithmics Lab at the Univ. Milano-Bicocca has an available Postdoctoral position for a bioinformatician with experience in managing and analyzing NGS data, on a project devoted to the study of anti-cancer immune response by regulatory non-coding RNAs, in collaboration with the National Institute of Molecular Genetics (INGM).
Our lab is currently developing new algorithms to analyze transcriptomics data in order to identify ncRNA. We are looking for a candidate that is going to interact with computer scientists, bioinformaticians and biologists, to manage and analyze the (Illumina) data produced at INGM and to help in improving the software developed by our group.
The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in Bioinformatics or related fields and experience in dealing with NGS data, a good command of English and written communication. The candidate is expected to interact with a small group and to be able also to work independently towards an agreed goal.
