IIMCB (http://iimcb.gov.pl) is the top-ranked Polish research institute in the field of biology. The institute provides cutting-edge equipment and facilities, Illumina Nextseq500, strong computational cluster, and a fully functional zebrafish facility. IIMCB is committed to provide a supportive and inclusive work environment.
The laboratory of Zebrafish Developmental Genomics was established in partnership with the Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research (MPI-HLR). The current focus of our research is to elucidate the gene regulatory networks and epigenetic mechanisms regulating various aspects of developmental biology as the initial step towards understanding human genetic diseases. Our research employs state of the art methodology based on Next-Generation Sequencing as well as CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing technology.
We invite application from motivated and talented individuals for a bioinformatics specialist position, which is available immediately. The successful candidate will join an exciting project to study the genetic and epigenetic regulatory landscape of heart development and disease. He/she will be in charge of pioneering computational analysis pipeline and establish bioinformatics resources for integrative analysis of RNA-seq and ChIP-seq data. A PhD degree in bioinformatics is preferred but not necessary as long as the candidate can demonstrate independent thinking and learning. Candidates with background in mathematics or computer science who are interested in working with cutting edge technology to study development in an exciting model organism are highly welcome. Solid understanding of probability and statistics and knowledge of programming language (R or Python) is essential. Additional experience in RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, and/or ATAC-seq data analysis will be particularly advantageous. The ideal candidate must possess good communication skills as close interaction with other team members is required.
We offer the chance to work in a team of young and friendly scientists with interests in regulatory genomics, epigenetics, developmental biology, and biochemistry. The position is available immediately with guaranteed short term funding; candidates are subsequently encouraged to apply for a grant or fellowship upon confirmation of employment.
Please forward your complete application including a CV, a motivation letter, and the names of two referees to firstname.lastname@example.org before the 31st of July 2016.
