We are seeking highly motivated computational biologists to join the research group of Peer Bork within EMBL's Structural and Computational Biology Unit as a postdoctoral fellow. This bioinformatics group works on a wide range of topics with a current focus on microbial analysis in ecosystems like the human gut and the ocean.
Your role would be to analyse large-scale microbiomics data (metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, metabolomics etc.) for biological discoveries by data integration. Data will mostly come from various internal and external human microbiome projects, but also from ocean and soil. Different project areas are available, for example integration of multi-omics data, analysis of clinical time-series data for the discovery of disease biomarkers, or in vitro bacterial screening analysis (for the latter also some lab experience is desired). The work aims at biological discoveries and will comprise both methodological and applied aspects.
